Washington D.C.: On screen late Carrie Fisher was famous to fight bad guys from a galaxy far, far away. Even in reality, she knew how to defend her friends from the actual bad guys.
Emmy-award winning director and producer Heather Ross, while giving an interview to a radio station, opened about her own experiences with sexual assault and harassment in Hollywood and how Fisher came to her defense, reports E! Online.
Ross explained that she had attempted to go to dinner with the man, but when he picked her up, he pulled the car over and climbed in top of her and pinned her to the seat.
She managed to push the producer off her but as she fled, he noted, “You’ll never make a movie in my town and get the F*** out of my car.” When Ross confided in her friend Fisher, the late actress took matters into her own hands.
Ross shared, “About two weeks later, she sent me a message online and she said, ‘I just saw [blank] at Sony Studios. I knew he would probably be there, so I went to his office and personally delivered a Tiffany box wrapped with a white bow.”
She continued, “I asked her what was inside and she said, ‘It was a cow tongue from Jerry’s Famous Deli in Westwood with a note that said, ‘If you ever touch my darling Heather or any other woman again, the next delivery will be something of yours in a much smaller box!’”
She added that knowing Fisher had her back left an impact on her.
