In the wake of Carrie Fisher passing away last week due to complications from a heart attack, numerous stars who were close to the beloved actress has weighed in with their thoughts and prayers.
There was Carrie’s half-sister, Joely Fisher, who wrote THIS.
And there was Carrie’s Star Wars colleague and close friend, Mark Hamill, who wrote THIS.
And now we have a few kind and generous words from Ellen DeGeneres.
The comedian welcomed Fisher as a guest on her talk show numerous times over the years, sharing a tight bond with the 60-year old prior to Fisher’s death.
Having aired her first new episode since this tragic event on Wednesday, DeGeneres took a few moments today to recognize the impact Carrie had on her life.
“I wanna say something about my friend, Carrie Fisher,” DeGeneres says to the camera in the following video.
“I knew her for a long time. She has been on the show many times, and the last time was just a month ago. And I loved when she was here. She made me laugh so hard. She was smart, she was funny, she was hilariously honest about herself and the world around her.”
DeGeneres then cut to a slew of memorable clips from all the times Fisher stopped by as a guest.
“I miss you, Carrie,” DeGeneres says at the end of the tribute. “I love ya.”
