Although it centres around a woman being abused again, it’s more about how much of a badass the late, great Carrie Fisher was when it came to standing up for herself. The story comes from screenwriter Heather Robinson – who wrote the 2005 film ‘The Perfect Man – as she recounts how Fisher threatened to cut off a studio exec’s penis if he ever threatened a woman again.
You can hear it recounted below in an interview, or just read it a little bit below that if you’re in a rush:

About two weeks later, she sent me a message online and she said, ‘I just saw (blank) at Sony Studios. I knew he would probably be there, so I went to his office and personally delivered a Tiffany box wrapped with a white bow.
I asked her what was inside and she said, ‘It was a cow tongue from Jerry’s Famous Deli with a note that said, If you ever touch my darling Heather or any other woman again, the next delivery will be (clears throat) something of yours in a much smaller box!
Nicely. We’ve all heard stories about Fisher being a complete badass and this is no exception really and only serves to add to her mythos. RIP.
