Classic Photos Of Real Life In The 1980s
Carrie Fisher in a trashcan
Carrie Fisher was the low key queen of the ‘80s. Even though she was small enough to fit in a trash can her outsized personality more than made up for it. However, much of her gregariousness came from the fact that she suffered from bipolar disease, something that she didn’t shy away from. She explained:
Having had this illness my entire life, I accommodated it by developing a very big personality. Over the years, writing about [having bipolar disorder] did help me to be able to talk about my illness in the abstract, to make light of it. That’s my way of surviving, to abstract it into something that’s funny and not dangerous.
