Looks like Hollywood moms can embarrass their children, too. In a new essay for Time magazine, Billie Lourd writes about her experience on the set of Star Wars: The Force Awakens. After Carrie Fisher pushed the hairstylist to give her daughter the same side-buns she rocked in the original films, Fisher’s inner stage mom came out.
Lourd says that her mother kept asking how she was feeling throughout the shooting—questions Lourd would brush off. “I scoffed at her maternal questions…In the moment, I was humiliated that my mom was mom-ing me on my first day of work, on the Star Wars set, of all places.” Now, she remember the moments with her late mother fondly. “Initially, Princess Leia was kind of like my stepmom. Now she’s my guardian angel, and I’m her keeper.”
