Billie Lourd Once Tried To Sneak Into a 'Star Wars' Screening With Mom Carrie Fisher

Just a few weeks ago, Billie Lourd wrote an emotional tribute to her mom, Carrie Fisher, who passed away last year around the holidays.

And now, the former Scream Queens actress shared another memory of her mom — where they tried and failed to sneak into a Star Wars: The Force Awakens screening. However, they were caught.

“[There was] no chance,” she shared with THR about their attempt, laughing at the story.

In fact, Carrie actually tried to do it before for Billie‘s show, Scream Queens.

“She showed up with mismatched socks and hadn’t brushed her hair,” Billie remembers. “And even then, everyone was like, ‘There’s Carrie Fisher!’”

Billie Lourd Writes Sweet Acceptance Speech for Carrie Fisher’s Disney Legends Award

American Horror Story actress Billie Lourd accepted the Disney Legends Award on behalf of her late mother, Carrie Fisher, Friday. While Billie couldn’t accept the award in-person at the D23 Expo in California, she penned a heartfelt speech.

“As far back as I can remember, my mom and I have been Disney fanatics,” the 24-year-old actress wrote, “I was so obsessed with Ariel that I wanted to change my name. We went to Disneyland so much that I now realize she might have even loved it more than I did.”

She went on to address how much the award would have meant to her mom, E! News reports.

“Becoming part of the Disney family was truly an amazing moment for her,” she continued, “She secretly always wanted to be a Disney princess, so getting to be a Disney princess and a Disney legend would have been her ultimate dream. I wish I could be there to accept this award on her behalf, but unfortunately, I am currently working on American Horror Story. I am beyond grateful to Mr. Iger and everyone at Disney for this incredible honor. Thank you again, and may the force be with you always.”

Billie has also paid tribute to her mother by appearing on her behalf at a Star Wars celebration, posting loving notes on social media, and spreading her wisdom.

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.
