30 Sep Never forget that time George Lucas told Carrie Fisher, after she asked to be allowed to wear a bra, that “there’s no underwear in space.” He tried to patch things up with Fisher later:

"He’s seen the show a couple times, and he actually came over and explained, because [I told the story] of him saying that there was no underwear in space," Fisher said at the Television Critics Association fall press tour. "He explained that in space you get weightless, and so your flesh expands. What? But your bra doesn’t, so you get strangled by your bra. That’s why I couldn’t wear a bra in the first Star Wars. George actually came backstage when I did the show in San Francisco and told me that.”

Obvious punchline: George Lucas has no idea how a human boob works.Another good joke: bras are a deathtrap in space, but metal bikinis are totally okay.Feminist Film: no bras in space.
