Billie Lourd Opens Up About Losing Carrie Fisher & Debbie Reynolds


She's opening up.

For the newest issue of 'Town & Country' magazine, upcoming 'American Horror Story: Cult' star Billie Lourd is speaking out about the losses of both her mother Carrie Fisher, and her grandmother, Debbie Reynolds.

Billie said to the magazine:

“If life’s not funny, then it’s just true – and that would be unacceptable. Even when she [Carrie Fischer] died, that was what got me through that whole thing. When Debbie died the next day, I could just picture her saying, ‘Well, she’s upstaging me once again, of course – she had to.’”

Billie also discussed how she's living her life following the losses, growing up during her mothers addictions, and her journey to becoming an actress: 

“I’ve always kind of lived in their shadows, and now is the first time in my life when I get to own my life and stand on my own. I love being my mother’s daughter, and it’s something I always will be, but now I get to be just Billie. It’s a lot of pressure, because she [Carrie] had such an incredible legacy, and now I have to uphold that and make it evolve in my own way.”

“A lot of people have had experiences like mine, too. Tons of people grow up with mentally ill parents who have drug problems… It’s such a common thing, and people really don’t talk about it.

“My mom pointed me toward it. The first thing I did was Star Wars: The Force Awakens. [On set] my mother would pull me aside and be like, ‘It’s weird that you’re so comfortable here. This is the most uncomfortable environment in the world. If you’re comfortable here, you should do this.”
