See Inside Carrie Fisher's Otherworldly Los Angeles Home — Plus, Why Daughter Billie Lourd is Moving In
A Galaxy Not So Far Away
An Eye for Art
In her living room, Fisher hung her collection of what she called "ugly children" paintings (some are included in the sale) and named them after stars such as Kevin Spacey, Richard Dreyfuss and Shia LaBeouf. She died before seeing the middle portrait in the gold frame—it was to be a Christmas gift from her family.
"If you are a Star Wars fan, this is the Holy Grail," says Profiles in History CEO Joe Maddalena.
Estimates for the items are not yet available, and part of the proceeds will go to mental health charities: Reynolds's longtime cause the Thalians and the Jed Foundation, chosen by Fisher's daughter Billie Lourd, 25.
Every Day's a Holiday
"If you can say anything about the house, it's always been playful," the late Star Wars actress once said. A perfect example: the Christmas tree Fisher kept up year round because she wanted to celebrate every single day.
Darth Vader hangs from the tree, which is up for sale with its ornaments.
An Important Note
Close friend James Blunt often stayed at Fisher's house and wrote some of his biggest hits on her piano (up for auction), including "You're Beautiful."
Fisher had a stained-glass window (not for sale) depicting her daughter, actress Lourd. Fisher adored her daughter and wrote on Twitter, "She's MUCH more than my kid. Witty & pretty, I aspire 2 deserve her."
Fisher's wedding to Paul Simon in 1983 (they divorced less than a year later) was overshadowed by gruesome news in the New York Post.
Splashed on the Front Page
Fisher found this juxtaposition amusing and put a framed copy in her bathroom.
What's Not for Sale
Fisher and Reynolds' properties were for sale for $18 million but are no longer on the market. Lourd has decided to move in and recently told Town & Country, "I went back and forth on it, but it's so magical. It's such a special place."
