Momlogic's wild, wacky and revealing interview with Carrie Fisher.

Carrie Fisher

Sure, she's best known for sporting that metallic bikini in "Star Wars," marrying singer Paul Simon and being the daughter of Hollywood legends Eddie Fisher and Debbie Reynolds. But you won't believe what else Carrie Fisher 'fessus up to in our explosive momlogic interview:

"My father I call 'puff daddy' cause he smokes joints four times a day and not for medicinal purposes. I saw my father more on television than I did in real life," Carrie tells us.

There's no doubt, her life has been anything but conventional. Growing up with the Brad Pitt and Jen Aniston of their time, Carrie's dad famously dumped her mom for Elizabeth Taylor -- making Liz the Angelina of her time. But like everything else in her headline-making life, Carrie keeps it all in perspective. "Every family is insane, mine just wears wigs while they do it."

And Carrie's life was never the same after she wore that fetish fueling metal bikini in "Star Wars". But that wasn't the only wacky wardrobe issue on set. Director George Lucas, ordered the then 19-year-old, 105 lb Carrie to lose 10 pounds -- as well as something else. "He took one look at me in that white dress and said, 'you can't wear a bra in that dress' and I said 'why?' and he said there's no underwear in space." So we just had to ask -- does that mean Luke Skywalker and Hans Solo also went commando? Carrie didn't miss a beat. "We'll have to look at the movie and see if anyone's bouncing but me."

But don't be fooled -- Fisher's life has been far from all glitz and glamour. She spoke quite candidly about her drug addiction as well as her parents' unconventional way of dealing with it, "My mom found out I was on acid, and asked Cary Grant to call me since he had done acid himself." But it was her confession of having undergone electroshock therapy which really made us realize how important it is for Carrie to laugh through her pain. "I was severely depressed. It helped a lot. Right after, you forget four months out of your life. It was rough but worth it. It was tough on my daughter, she's just a bystander to the crash of me."

It's Carrie's 16-year-old daughter, Billy, which seems to be the grounding force in her life. "I'm a cool mom, but you don't always want a cool mom, you want a mom. I learned to cook for my daughter. It flipped my mother out." As for her own mother, Carrie admits -- she always wanted to be just like her mom. "I always wanted her big breasts and I got them," she boasts.
