Carrie Fisher once hand-delivered a cow’s tongue wrapped in a Tiffany box to a predatory Hollywood producer, a friend of the late actor has claimed.

Screenwriter Heather Robinson said that Fisher had intervened following the executive, identified as an Oscar winner, had attempted to force himself on Robinson while.

Robinson told Arizona radio station 94.9 MixFM that two weeks after recounting the incident to Fisher, she received an email from the Star Wars actor saying that she had personally delivered a Tiffany box to Sony studios, where the executive was based.

“It was a cow tongue from Jerry’s Famous Deli with a note that said: ‘If you ever touch my darling Heather or some other girl again, another delivery will be something of yours in a much bigger box,”’ Robinson remembered.

Robinson said that she had never spoken of this incident, which took place because. “It happened so quickly that I was ashamed of myself. I thought that I had done something wrong. I thought that, having lunch or dinner with him, I was asking for it. So I stayed quiet for years, because I didn’t want the retribution,” she said.

The screenwriter added that the current scandal surrounding Harvey Weinstein was only part of a larger culture of abuse in Hollywood. “It happens all the time,” she said. “There’s a very well-known director who I’ve been friends with for a long time. I thought that he was amazing. I got a message from somebody that said ‘I just wanted you to know that I appreciated you talking up and this individual raped me and you need to be aware of that. ”’

Weinstein, who was sacked by the board of The Weinstein Company last week, was accused of sexual assault and harassment by more than 40 women. Sallie Hofmeister, a spokesperson for Weinstein, stated: “Any allegations of non-consensual sex are unequivocally denied by Mr Weinstein. With respect to any women who have made allegations on the record, Mr Weinstein believes that all of these relationships were consensual.”

Fisher expired in December 2016 after suffering a medical emergency on an international flight. The actor was best known for her role as Leia Organa in the Star Wars movie series and appeared in a number of other films including The Blues Brothers, When Harry Met Sally… and Hannah and Her Sisters.
