The 59-year-old actress, who is reprising her role of Leia in the hotly-anticipated movie, turned the air blue when she joked about talking to her younger self during the star-studded event at the TCL Chinese Theatre in Los Angeles.
After her co-star Oscar Isaac – who plays X-wing fighter pilot Poe Dameron in the sci-fi film – asked her about her inspiration for reprising her role of Leia, she replied: ”I asked the early, young Carrie Fisher what it would be like 48 years later … oh wait it’s 40. She wouldn’t speak to me. She was very busy, partying and making sure I would look like s**t later.”
But in an attempt to back-track on her expletives she made things worse as she continued to swear, saying: ”I don’t mean s**t. By s**t I mean not as good as.”
The actress turned up for the premiere, but kept fans updated on her progress on social media.
Posting a picture from her vehicle, Carrie wrote on Twitter: ”We probably’ll be stuck in traffic thru first hour of film..bomb dogs currently sniffing the car-almost there.”
Carrie eventually made it to the event, and walked the red carpet alongside her daughter Billie Lourd.
She had earlier shared a picture of herself and Billie getting ready for the event in their dressing gowns, writing: ”Check out pre premiere Robe Warriors!”
