Carrie Fisher's tale of being busted by "buses of Japanese tourists" while high on acid at a beach has been revealed in Netflix's new film Have A Good Trip: Adventures In Psychedelics.
The late Star Wars icon said the concept of "drug anecdotes" was "hilarious" to her because "if you're doing drugs the right way you can't tell an orderly story".
Still, she joined celebrities like Sting, Ben Stiller, Sarah Silverman, Anthony Bourdain and more in recounting their craziest drug-taking adventures for the documentary.
Fisher explained she used to travel to various locations around the world with the express purpose of taking acid there.
On one occasion, she visited a beach in Seychelles, which at first looked to be the perfect deserted tripping spot.
"I was on the beach and there was no one else on the beach. I'm there with my Super 8 movie camera and I'm filming my friend," Fisher said.
"Suddenly I sense that there's been a 'disturbance in The Force'. And I turn around - and by the way, I'm topless - and there are busloads of Japanese folk.
"It turns out where we are is where they bring all the tourists to have lunch from the hotels. I am, I believe at that time, Princess Leia in a profound way, and I am not clothed."
Fisher added that despite her hijinks when she was later diagnosed with bipolar disorder she told the doctor "I felt normal on acid".
