Actress Carrie Fisher, with novelist Bruce Wagner, attending a Kentucky Derby party April 30, 1999 at the Kentucky Horse Park in Lexington. At the party, as a reporter was starting to ask her about the upcoming release of Star Wars: Episode I - The Phantom Menace, Fisher interjected: "No, I have not seen it. I can always tell the face they make before they ask about it." Despite being forever linked to the Star Wars trilogy and the accompanying hype of the new film, Fisher said: "I can't get sick of it. That would be a bad choice to make." Fisher, who died Dec. 27, 2016 was attending her first Derby the following day in Louisville. Photo by Jahi Chikwendui | staff
