Carrie Fisher and Debbie Reynolds
Watch Carrie reflect on growing up with famous parents
Because her parents were famous, Carrie says the balance of her family was shifted. The focus was on the parents, not the children. "Normally a family's organized raising the child," she says.
In fact, Carrie says she never wanted to go into show business because of what she saw her parents go through. "Celebrity is just obscurity biding its time. Eventually, all fame will disappear. And I watched that happen," she says. "My mother was no longer wanted in movies by the time she was 40. My dad, I didn't see as much of, but also his career. So I always knew what was coming."
