Carrie Fisher and her mother Debbie Reynolds were laid to rest Friday in a joint private funeral service, with the Star Wars actress' ashes placed in a giant Prozac pill urn. Fisher, a longtime mental health advocate, openly discussed her battles with depression and bipolar disorder during her lifetime.Prior to the service at the Hollywood Hills' Forest Lawn Memorial Park, reports surfaced that, despite the family's desire to lay both actresses to rest together, Fisher preferred cremation while Reynolds wanted to be buried.
According to USA Today, some of Fisher's ashes were placed in the coffin with her mother, with the rest residing in the Prozac pill urn that her brother Todd Fisher held during the service. Todd Fisher explained the unique urn to Entertainment Tonight, "Carrie's favorite possession was a giant Prozac pill that she bought many years ago. A big pill. She loved it, and it was in her house, and [daughter] Billie [Lourd] and I felt it was where she'd want to be. We couldn't find anything appropriate. Carrie would like that. It was her favorite thing, and so that's how you do it. And so they're together, and they will be together here and in heaven, and we're OK with that." (Más)
