Screenwriter Heather Robinson once revealed how Fisher intervened when an executive producer harassed her in his car. This unnamed person tried to force himself on Robinson.

She told 94.9 MixFM that after she relayed to Fisher the incident, the Star Wars actress delivered something to the producer in a fancy Tiffany box. The gift was received at Sony Studios.

It was a cow tongue from Jerry’s Famous Deli with a note that said: ‘If you ever touch my darling Heather or any other woman again, the next delivery will be something of yours in a much smaller box.”

Robinson recalled the incident but never revealed it publicly when it happened in 2000 for fear that it would ruin her career. Most people suffer this kind of harassment, but many never talked about it. The screenwriter admitted she felt bad and blamed it on herself.

It happened so quickly that I was ashamed of myself. I thought that I had done something wrong. I thought that having lunch or dinner with him, I was asking for it. So I stayed quiet for years because I didn’t want the retribution.”

Robinson told the radio host that the producer tried to get on top of her and when she tried to flee, he shouted at her and said she would never make a movie again.

Abuse in the industry is only a fraction of what is really happening in Hollywood. Many of these cases are not reported.

There’s a very well-known director who I’ve been friends with for a long time. I thought that he was amazing. I got a message from somebody that said, ‘I just wanted you to know that I appreciated you speaking up, and this person raped me, and you should know that.’

Robinson said it felt validating to know that Carrie Fisher is, indeed, a true friend. She recalled how the actress would stand up for her friends and show the abusers who they were messing with.
