Blonde Carrie Fisher Honored with the Golden Heart Award.

Hamill & Fisher

Star Wars: Episode VII‘s Carrie Fisher was honored last night in a ceremony in Los Angeles for her understated and charitable contributions to the Midnight Mission. Read more after the jump.


Award Galas

The Midnight Mission celebrated 100 years of charitable work in the greater Los Angeles area with a gala honoring Arlene Van Dyke, Denise Salazar, and our very own Carrie Fisher. For many years these folks have been working with the Midnight Mission through charitable donations and great acts of love and kindness. The Midnight Mission provides a valuable resource for people who battle addiction and homelessness and helps provide them with the services needed to walk the path to recovery. Ms. Fisher has been very candid in the past about her own battles with addiction so it is only apropos that she return the same kindness that she surely received when she made her own walk to recovery.





The gala was thrown at the Beverly Wilshire Hotel in Beverly Hills, California last night. Some of the celebrities in attendance included past honoree Dick Van Dyke, Alan Ruck, Ed Begley Jr., Beverly De Angelo and our very own Mark Hamill. Yes, Mark Hamill attended the gala in a show of support for his long-time friend and Star Wars co-star. In fact an Instagram(er) calling herself sabbathegossip was also in attendance and provided the pictures below:





Then we were treated to a couple more pics from another Instagram(er) called team_chavvo who was lucky enough to have taken a picture with each of the Episode VII luminaries!






The tint of Ms. Fisher’s hair looks rather on the blonde side. In the past few weeks fisher posted several images with her new look so it would appear that we will be seeing a blonde-ish Leia Organa-Skywalker-Solo in next year’s EPIC release.



I don’t know about you but Fisher looks absolutely fabulous in those pics. And finally a picture with brother and sister together.

Oh, and by the way, anyone else notice his long, scraggly Gandalf beard? Sure, Mark’s in civilian clothing trying to live his life in some quasi state of normalcy, but does anyone else get excited at the thought of seeing Jedi Master Luke Skywalker return to the Big Screen soon?!


As always share your comments below or inside The Cantina over a cyber mug of Corellian ale and stay tuned for more news, rumors, speculation and updates as we get them!

P.S. The picture where it looks like Hamill is holding a walking cane is actually just a metal rail from the event.

    Wow he looks really different, maybe he’s just growing all his hair out so they can trim it back to the right length before filming.. Or maybe the captivity rumours may be true.

    I highly doubt we’ll see a blonde Leia. It’s not like they died Carrie blonde, that’s been her natural hair colour for the past couple of years. I presume Carrie will be given a wig so they can achieve more extravagant princess-y hairstyles; ala the long braids or maybe even the buns again. (Hopefully not like the fu****g hideous prequel/padme styles – )

    It’s interesting to see how unkempt Mark is though. I wonder if they need it that way to do these rumoured exiled-luke scenes, or if they will keep it trimmed. dun dun dunn

    Mark needs a new wardrobe. His clothes are way to big now. You would think he could afford it!

    • October 1, 2014 at 4:21 pm

      ikr it’s not like he’s filming any particular film at the moment

    • October 1, 2014 at 4:47 pm

      Maybe he just doesn’t give a shit…

      • October 1, 2014 at 6:17 pm

        I agree. He’s probably like, “Fuck you guys, I’m Luke Skywalker, Jedi Knight bbeeeaaatttccchhh!”

        • October 1, 2014 at 6:39 pm

          Hobo Skywalker’s gonna save the galaxy! ;P

        • October 1, 2014 at 6:42 pm

          And laughing like the Joker.

  • October 1, 2014 at 4:27 pm

    Even Princess Leia does Duck-face in photos now…

    • October 1, 2014 at 4:29 pm

      those cheekbones could grate cheese though

    • October 1, 2014 at 7:03 pm

      That beard’s gonna need its own agent soon.

  • October 1, 2014 at 4:37 pm

    Huh? Where is Mark Hamill in those pics?

  • October 1, 2014 at 6:09 pm

    Glad I read the PS – I was totally going to ask if that was a cane he was leaning on – and, therefore, what happened? Did the door that got Han get him too? 😉

    • October 1, 2014 at 6:44 pm

      LUKE: Owww! What the hell d’you do that for?!
      HAN: Heh. You owed me one, kid. ;P

  • October 1, 2014 at 6:14 pm

    She looks a little weird in the face for some reason. Can’t tell if it’s her chin or some other shit around her mouth. Anyway, glad she dropped alot of that fat she was hauling around and happy she’s back for VII!

    Is it me, or is Mark Hamil looking more like Alan Moore with that beard?

    • October 1, 2014 at 8:12 pm

      No idea who that beard is, never mind Alan Moore!

  • October 1, 2014 at 6:55 pm

    Awesome! Can’t wait for Jedi Master Kris Kringle to deliver Epsode VII to us next Christmas! o<|:D

  • October 1, 2014 at 7:13 pm

    Too much beard plus no neck = dwarf rather than jedi master

  • October 1, 2014 at 7:40 pm

    If Mark throws on a bandana he’ll fit in with the Robertsons on Duck Dynasty.

  • October 1, 2014 at 8:23 pm

    My guess is that’s what ‘The Ancient Fear’ is – Xyrophobia!

  • October 1, 2014 at 9:43 pm

    The beard is a bad idea because it obscures the performance.

  • October 1, 2014 at 10:38 pm

    Wow Carrie looks f-ing gorgeous! It’s really hard to see that beauty through those sunglasses-glasses she always wears. Wow!

    And hell yeah Mark… that’s a fantastic beard!

    • October 1, 2014 at 10:56 pm

      She looks great without her glasses. Can’t wait to see her properly dolled up as Leia.

  • October 1, 2014 at 11:10 pm

    Carrie looks like she’s enjoying herself tugging on Mark’s beard. She’s probably exclaiming, “Wookiee!”.

  • October 2, 2014 at 3:36 am

    Luke’s krazy kousin Hobo Skywalker…

  • October 2, 2014 at 4:54 am

    I guess she just HAS to have some Coke in her hands… 😉

  • October 5, 2014 at 6:21 am

    In the instagram pic of Carrie from that Sabbaththegossip, she looks just like she used to do back in the day. She looks like an older leia. That’s great! Her glasses hide her face and focus on her not-so-great parts like her super pointy cheekbones or her messed up lips (drugs + old age?)

    She’s looking fantastic though and with the right lighting, make-up and hairstyle, she’ll look just like Leia again!
