Actress and author Carrie Fisher became Elizabeth Taylor’s step-daughter when Taylor married Fisher’s father, singer Eddie Fisher. Although Taylor and Eddie Fisher divorced when Carrie Fisher was eight, she maintained a close relationship with Taylor, who died Wednesday at age 79.
Reflecting upon her step-mom, Fisher told ‘Piers Morgan Tonight’ (weekdays, 9PM ET on CNN) about a “double date” she went on with Taylor, Michael Jackson and Shirley MacLaine.
“No one noticed Shirley and I,” Fisher quipped, after laying out one of the few scenarios in which she and MacLaine would be anonymous.
Like many of the luminaries Piers Morgan had on during the hour-long remembrance of Taylor, Fisher mentioned how kind and dedicated Taylor was to her friends, and spoke about the empathy the two-time Oscar Winner had for all those who were suffering.
