Carrie Fisher Once Gave a Cow Tongue to a Sexual Predator

One such story comes from screenwriter Heather Ross, who says that after another famous producer sexually harassed her, the late Carrie Fisher took it upon herself to "personally deliver" a cow's tongue to him as a threat.

The American film producer and executive had been accused of sexual harassment, assault, and rape by a number of women this month, and the co-founder of the Miramax and The Weinstein Company was ousted from his company, expelled from the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences and denounced by politicians he had formerly supported.


During an appearance on Tucson's 94.9 Mix FM, Fisher's longtime friend Heather Ross recounted a story that sounds exactly like something Fisher would do. She believed the meeting was purely professional, but on their way to grab a meal, she said the producer pulled his vehicle over and held her down while he groped her. She called into a local radio station in Tucson and spoke of an appalling experience with an Oscar-winning producer in 2000 (she declines to say who).

Being the badass that she was and a totally loyal friend, Fisher made a decision to take matters into her own hands. And after that fear wore off, about two weeks later, she sent me a message online and she was like, 'I just saw (blank) at Sony Studios. Fisher chose to personally deliver the tongue in a Tiffany's box to the producer at Sony.


The encounter ended with him telling her to "get the (expletive) outta my auto", and saying "you'll never make a movie in my town", Ross recalled. I felt safe thinking okay I'm not attractive to these people, I'm not looking to become an actress.

"That's just how she was, and I miss her dearly". When the two were in the vehicle, Ross says the man told her he needed to grab something from the pocket on the passenger door. 'I thought I did something wrong. She was true. She did that all on her own; I never even asked her for anything. That's who she was.
