Carrie Fisher, the deceased actress known mostly for her role as Princess Leia in the Star Wars films, in 2000 sent a producer who allegedly sexually assaulted her friend and screenwriter Heather Ross the tongue of a dead cow, Ross said during an appearance on an Arizona morning radio show last Thursday.
Her story comes a week after The New York Times and New Yorker Magazine published bombshell sexual assault stories on film producer Harvey Weinstein. The Times said Weinstein paid off sexual harassment accusers for decades and the New Yorker shared stories from multiple women who said Weinstein raped and sexually assaulted them.
Ross said she met a producer online and the two planned to meet for dinner to talk about an upcoming project. He picked her up, but pulled the car over just two minutes later and started touching her.
"He said, 'I have to get something out of the side pocket of the door over there,'" Ross said on the show. "He reaches over and grabs the handle of the chair, the passenger seat, and flips me backwards. All of a sudden, he is on top of me. He had his right hand, that was busy, and his left hand on my chest by my neck holding me down. It happened so fast."
Ross told Fisher about the incident the same night.
"She stayed quiet and listened to me and then she said, 'I promise you he will never touch you again,'" Ross told NBC News in an email. "She was exactly what I needed. Someone to just hold space for me — allowing me to be scared, hurt, confused, angry."
Fisher personally delivered the producer a gift: a cow tongue wrapped in a blue Tiffany's box.
"It was a cow's tongue from Jerry's Deli in Westwood 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,'" Ross said.
