However, she actually liked how it turned out!

And while she was worried about conflicts with her Disney contract, Fisher did reflect on a funny moment cameras captured while Carrie was training for her role as General Leia:

“She does this workout to trim down for Princes Leia and she finishes the workout and lights a cigarette and drinks a Coca-Cola, and the trainer’s like, ‘Carrie, no!’ and grabs the Coke and pours it out. The next thing you see her assistant putting Coca-Colas in the refrigerator. That was Carrie, a real original.”

Bright Lights premieres Saturday, January 7 at 8 p.m. on HBO.
