Ellen DeGeneres and Carrie Fisher makes money for charity by bidding off Star Wars premiere ticket to random people for charity.

While promoting the latest installment for Star Wars: The Force Awakens, Carrie Fisher who will once more be reprising her role as Princess Leia stopped by at The Ellen DeGeneres Show. The 59 year old actress was in her sarcastically jovial mood.

When Ellen asked her if she knew the film she originally starred in was going to be a hit, she said she did. She said that whenever people asked her ‘that question she said that she thought it would be bigger and it had been a let-down that it hadn’t been more. So she knew that the latest part was going to do well because she was psychic. 

Ellen then showed her some of the Princess Leia pictures from the original movie to a lot of applause. Carrie joked that she was not to blame for how she looked now. It was all medication.

No one tells you that you look worse when you get older. She said that when she would be 70 she would wish that she looked like how she was right at that moment with Carrie.

Ellen also laughed and then told the audience that she and Carrie had stepped out on the street to sell Star Wars tickets to passer byes for charity. Ellen then cut to a clip where she and Carrie wore Princess Leia signatory side buns which Carrie called ‘ugly hair’ and both had placards. 

Several cars stopped to hear the offer. The original offer Ellen made was $200 a pair. It was too expensive for some but that did not keep them from trying to buy the tickets for money on their cards or even a hoodie.

One of the stoppers did not recognize Princess Leia and a kid admitted that his favorite character was Luke Skywalker. Carrie and Ellen got generous and gave away some tickets for free. Some people were willing to pay up to $100 for the ticket and they did.

The best one was a Star Wars fan carrying a Lightsaber. He had no money but he offered to do a head stand and hum the Star Wars music and kept sweet on his word.

He was awarded the opening night tickets by Ellen. Carrie told him to dress up for the opening and he wished her with ‘May the Force be with you’.
