Los Angeles: "Star Wars" icon Carrie Fisher was known for her wit and even after her tragic demise the actress has managed to bring a smile on her fan's face as they mourn her loss.

In 2008's "Wishful Drinking," one of the three memoirs she wrote, there was a sort of auto-obituary, reported Deadline. In the piece, she wrote about her "Star Wars" director's reasoning for her Princess Leia wearing that flowing white dress, and not much else, in the movie.

"George (Lucas) comes up to me the first day of filming, and he takes one look at the dress and says, 'You can't wear a bra under that dress...because there is no underwear in space.'"

She said Lucas eventually explained the full reasoning, which she revealed, writing, "What happens is you go to space and you become weightless. So far so good, right? But then your body expands??? But your bra doesn't'so you get strangled by your own bra."

"Now I think that this would make for a fantastic obit'so I tell my younger friends that no matter how I go, I want it
reported that I drowned in moonlight, strangled by my own bra," Fisher wrote.

However, it was not the only time she discussed death, using humour, in an interview with Rolling Stone just last month, she was asked if she fears death.

"No. I fear dying. Anything with pain associated with it, I don't like. I've been there for a couple of people when they were dying; it didn't look like fun. But if I was gonna do it, I'd want someone like me around. And I will be there!" she had
said.
