Ellen DeGeneres And Carrie Fisher Sell ‘Star Wars’ Tickets To Fans (VIDEO)
Ellen DeGeneres and Stars Wars actress Carrie Fisher hit the streets of Los Angeles on Monday’s “Ellen DeGeneres Show” to sell tickets to the opening night of Star Wars: Episode VII – The Force Awakens. See the video below.
Both DeGeneres and Fisher were sporting Princess Leia side buns worn as they stopped cars on the street to purportedly raise money for charity. However, the actual nature of the charity remained a little unclear, with Fisher joking they were raising funds for “mental illness for animals.” But while the majority of people they stopped said they didn’t have money, Degeneres and Fisher were willing to barter. “What do you have in your trunk?” asked DeGeneres. “We’ll pay you. It pays to be a hoarder.”
At the end of the segment, the pair gave out free tickets to deserving fans, including one who was already holding a light saber. The eager Star Wars fan did a handstand and sang the Star Wars theme song at the request of DeGeneres and Fisher, before shouting, “Force be with you!” and running off.
Fisher also did an in-studio interview with DeGeneres and talked about the legacy of the franchise. She joked, “People do ask me: ‘Did you know it was going to be that big of a hit?’ So now, I say, ‘Yes. In fact, I thought it would be bigger and I’m let down.'” The 59-year-old actress also poked fun at her own appearance when DeGeneres showed Fisher a classic photo of herself onscreen, remarking that “what I look like now is not my fault… Years of living longer makes you look worse. Who knew about that?”
