Celebs React to the News of Carrie Fisher’s Heart Attack
We were all shocked and filled with concern when we found out that IRL hero Carrie Fisher had suffered a massive heart attack while aboard a plane and was in critical condition. While fans were quick to jump onto social media to express their shock and send well-wishes, Carrie’s contemporaries and friends in the biz were also right there to express how much Ms. Fisher means to them.
While current reports say that 60-year-old fierce AF Carrie — who not only played Princess Leia, but also our fave bestie in When Harry Met Sally (“You’re right! You’re right! I know you’re right!”) — is in intensive care, the reactions keep coming in…
