Celebrities honor the beloved ‘Star Wars’ icon, who died at age 60 on Tuesday

Carrie Fisher was a force to be reckoned with. She was a symbol of strength and resiliency for millions, a brutally honest and unapologetically funny woman who overcame addiction and mental illness with one of the sharpest minds this side of the galaxy. Though best known for her pioneering work as Princess Leia in George Lucas's beloved Star Wars franchise, the Emmy-nominated actress, author, and playwright was an outspoken icon in her own right, often turning pain into humor. To say she will be missed is an understatement.

From her beloved Star Wars co-stars Mark Hamill and Billy Dee Williams to her mother, Debbie Reynolds, to the women she inspired with her brilliant sense of humor and wit, here's how celebrities are honoring the late star.

    "Carrie holds such special place in the hearts of everyone at Lucasfilm it is difficult to think of a world without her," Kennedy said in a statement. "She was Princess Leia to the world but a very special friend to all of us. She had an indomitable spirit, incredible wit, and a loving heart. Carrie also defined the female hero of our age over a generation ago. Her groundbreaking role as Princess Leia served as an inspiration of power and confidence for young girls everywhere. We will miss her dearly."
