Star Wars actress Carrie Fisher hospitalized herself citing bi-polar disorder after an odd performance on a cruise ship this past week. Watch the video below and read on.
(Update: Video has been removed likely due to Fisher's publicist finding out. Basically it was Fisher drunk using a towel to clean up dog pee, breaking into spontaneous song during a scene in her stage show and slurring her speech.)
Through her own admission Fisher has battled drug abuse with prescription pills and cocaine through parts of her life and seems to be on the road to recovery, but this somewhat drunken stage show has me wondering if she can stay clean through the new trilogy if asked to take part. Mind you I know bi-polar disorder is a hard illness to struggle with and we've seen actors and actresses in far worse conditions give astounding performances, but is it worth the risk? With Hamill and Ford already willing to jump in I have to say it will be interesting to see if Disney approaches Fisher with an offer with these recent events. If they do, do you think it'd a good or bad call?
