He later wrote a longer tribute saying “Carrie was one-of-a-kind who belonged to us all- whether she liked it or not. She was OUR Princess, damn it, & the actress who played her blurred into one gorgeous, fiercely independent & ferociously funny, take-charge woman who took our collective breath away.”
On Tuesday, the Star Wars icon passed away from cardiac arrest at UCLA Medical Center. The 60-year-old’s devastating death comes just days after she suffered a massive heart attack on a United Airlines flight.
