Carrie Fisher Gets a Personal Trainer for ‘Star Wars: Episode VII’

Kathleen Kennedy's 'no secrets' policy regarding Star Wars: Episode VII is in effect. Carrie Fisher visited the Calgary Comic Expo this weekend and once again 'officially' confirmed that she will be reprising her role as Princess Leia in J.J. Abrams' upcoming sci-fi sequel.

But that's not all. She also revealed that Disney is sending a personal trainer to her house, so that she can get in top shape for the role.

"I like being bought by Disney, because they never wanted to buy me before. I'm glad they are doing a new movie because they are sending a trainer to my house so I can get in really good shape. So I'm really eating a lot of sugar in advance, as you can see. By the time I really get down to it I will have eaten everything."

She also talked about kissing Harrison Ford as Han Solo in the original trilogy.

"Here's the thing: There's a difference between screen kissing and life kissing. Harrison doesn't like screen kissing. I believe one time he put an oyster in his mouth. Not with me, he just told me about that so I'd behave myself. So, not so great onscreen. But we were playing spin-the-bottle and he was better."

She wrapped up the interview by talking about choking Jabba the Hutt to death.

"What was his name? Jabba the Hut? I always get his name mixed up with other boyfriends. Oh God, I loved doing that. You know, they ridiculously asked me if I wanted a stunt double to kill Jabba the Hut. Can you imagine? I got to saw that neck off, it was really, really fun and one of the highlights of my career."

Star Wars: The Force Awakens comes to theaters December 18th, 2015.
