Fisher sent cow's tongue as warning


LONDON • The late actress Carrie Fisher once hand-delivered a cow's tongue wrapped in a Tiffany box to a predatory Hollywood producer, her friend said.

Screenwriter Heather Robinson said Fisher had intervened after the unnamed Oscar-winning executive had tried to force himself on Robinson while in his car in 2000.

Robinson told Arizona radio station 94.9 MixFM that two weeks after recounting the incident to Fisher, she received an e-mail from the actress saying she had personally delivered a box to Sony studios.

"It was a cow's 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 something of yours in a much smaller box,'" Robinson recalled.
