Carrie Fisher gave the most touching speech about her mother, Debbie Reynolds, back in 2015 and it is best thing you’ll see today
In the wake of iconic actress Debbie Reynolds’ death, just a day after the passing of her daughter Carrie Fisher, fans from all over the world have been sharing their memories of the legendary mother and daughter. While many fans of Carrie and Debbie are, of course, planning Star Wars marathons or Singin’ in the Rain and Halloweentown marathons to honor the beloved actresses, some of their best moments lie outside their films, when they talked about each other. Last year, Carrie presented her mother with the SAG Lifetime Achievement Award in the most amazing tribute you’ll see all day.
When presenting her mother with the Lifetime Achievement Award at the 2015 Screen Actors Guild Awards, Carrie gave a funny and heartwarming tribute to her mother. She began,
“I am very close with this year’s Screen Actors Guild Lifetime Achievement Award honoree. Not only was my grandmother her mother, she is grandmother to my alleged daughter. It also turns out that we’re neighbors. And as if all of this weren’t enough, she’s also my mother. Actually been more than a mother to me. Not much, but definitely more. She’s been an unsolicited stylist, interior decorator; prior to our original original introduction, Debbie Reynolds was already to voluptuous fertile half of America’s sweethearts.
Carrie highlights many of Debbie’s famous roles, from Tammy and the Bachelor, her breakout role Singin’ in the Rain, and Behind the Candelabra, on-screen legacy in a fitting presentation. In her acceptance speech, Debbie recalled her “ugly bun” for Singin’ In the Rain and spoke about warning Carrie about the perils of Hollywood hairstyles, in a moment that really showcased their relationship.
“I warned my daughter Carrie, who had just gotten a part in a picture, you know, Princess Leia in Star Wars," Debbie explained."I said, ‘Well Carrie be careful of any weird hairdos, so luckily George [Lucas] gave her two buns. Thank you, George.
We’re so heartbroken to be losing two American icons and we’re devastated for their family but we’re so glad we have moments like these to reflect back on.
