Drop Everything & Watch This Perfect & Tear-Inducing Carrie Fisher Tribute

Billie Lourd has had a hard year but found a way to honor her late mother, Carrie Fisher, on Thursday.

Jewish warrior-princess Carrie Fisher was honored Thursday morning by her daughter at the "Star Wars" 40th Anniversary Celebration in Orlando, FL. "She was a princess, she was a senator, and she played a part that was very smart".

"She was the boss". Like everyone else on the planet, I want to see my queen. She went from being an unknown actress, the daughter of Debbie Reynolds and Eddie Fisher, to Princess Leia - a character synonymous with the idea of the ultimate strong woman. She was very strong, very smart, very amusing, very bold, very tough, and there really wasn't much of a question. She's as much a part of it as anything and I think her presence now is even more powerful than it was, like Obi Wan - when the saber cuts him down he becomes more powerful. For this particular part, it was absolutely ideal...

"She wore a dress through the whole thing, but she was the toughest one of the group. If that wasn't ridiculous enough, she had me put on one of those bald cap masks with the Bozo hair and glasses and nose and then she walked me around the back lot".




"She was brilliant, and obviously we will all miss her, but she will always be the princess who took command and never backed down, never was in jeopardy".

Billie Lourd stepped out to speak about her late mom Carrie Fisher for the first time since her December 2016 death.

The 24-year-old actress continued, "My mom, like Leia, wasn't ever afraid to speak her mind and say things that might have made most people uncomfortable".

The actress, whose father is Fisher's ex-husband and Hollywood talent agent Bryan Lourd, concluded her tribute by telling event-goers that her mother's iconic role helped her understand a major life lesson.
