Fisher died on Tuesday at the age of 60 after suffering a heart attack during a flight from London to Los Angeles last Friday. The news is heartbreaking, and many remembered Fisher for inspiring both young and old. From Fisher bravely speaking publicly of her struggles with mental health to her candid interviews and brazen online presence, the actress and author impacted many lives on and off the screen.

As first noted by Vanity Fair, Fisher’s sense of humor was showcased in a simple request she had lined up for her obituary.

In her autobiographical book Wishful Drinking, Fisher detailed some of the troubles she encountered while filming with Star Wars.

George comes up to me the first day of filming and he takes one look at the dress and says,

“You can’t wear a bra under that dress.

“So, I say, “Okay, I’ll bite. Why?”

And he says, “Because. . . there’s no underwear in space.”

Fisher writes that George Lucas explained his reasoning by claiming that a bra would simply strangle someone to death.

Now George came to my show when it was in Berkeley. He came backstage and explained why you can’t wear your brassiere in other galaxies, and I have a sense very soon, so here’s why you cannot wear your brassiere, per George.

So, what happens is when you go to space and you become weightless. So far so good, right? But then your body expands??? But your bra doesn’t — so you get strangled by your own bra.

Now I think that this would make for a fantastic obit — so I tell my younger friends that no matter how I go, I want it reported that I drowned in moonlight, strangled by my own bra.

Carrie Fisher died on Tuesday. She drowned in moonlight and was strangled by her bra.
