Things got “weird” for actress Carrie Fisher, most remembered for her role as Princess Leia in ‘Star Wars’, when she went on a date with Chris Dodd in 1985. Fisher recounts the experience along with others in her newly released book ‘Shockaholic.’The Huffington Post
reports that for their date, Chris Dodd invited Ted Kennedy to join. It wasn’t long before matters took a turn for the awkward.
“Suddenly, Senator Kennedy, seated directly across from me, looked at me with his alert, aristocratic eyes and asked me a most surprising question,” writes Fisher. “‘So,' he said, clearly amused, 'do you think you'll be having sex with Chris at the end of your date?'"

Dodd “flushed” at the awkward question posed by Kennedy, but Fisher kept her cool. She writes “'Funnily enough, I won't be having sex with Chris tonight,' I said, my face composed and calm. 'No, that probably won't happen.' People blinked. 'Thanks for asking, though.'”
Relentless, Kennedy jabbed back once again, asking “Would you have sex with Chris in a hot tub? Perhaps as a way to say good night?"
“I’m no good in water,” Fisher wittily replied.
The scenario is but one of many interesting aspects of Fisher’s life that she writes about in her new book. Others include attempting to find a prostitute for her dying father, and being a patient of the dentist who sued Michael Jackson.
