Billie Lourd Pays Tribute To Her Mom at 'Star Wars' Event in Florida

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 hit the stage at a Star Wars celebration on Thursday (April 12) in Orlando, Florida.

“My mom used to say she never knew where Princess Leia ended and Carrie Fisher began,” Billie told the crowd (via People) while introducing a tribute video. “She was imperfect in many ways but her imperfections and willingness to speak about them are what made her more than perfect. My mom, like Leia, wasn’t ever afraid to speak her mind and say things that might have made most people uncomfortable.”

She added, “She taught me by her own example, that the most evolved person is seemingly a contradiction — they are both the strongest and the most vulnerable person in the room. And that was her. That is Leia.”

Billie donned a white custom-made Tom Ford dress inspired by Princess Leia.
