Carrie Fisher Has Launched an Advice Column

"Star Wars" icon Carrie Fisher, who's never been afraid to tell it like it is, hopes to use her own life experiences to help young people in a new advice columnm

Appropriately titled "Advice from the Dark Side," the column debuted Friday in The Guardian, where the actress asked specifically for young readers to send her their problems:

Many times (unfortunately) you don’t even have to solicit the opinions of those closest to you. I waited for my daughter, Billie, to come to me with her troubles – but I’m glad I didn’t hold my breath. I believe my best advice to her was when we came to a curb that needed to be addressed in an up or down manner, and I would caution her with my caring cow eyes “careful – uh oh wait baby – careful”. She came to believe that curbs and cars and other obstacles were actually called “carefuls”.

Now, I want you all to consider calling upon me with your carefuls and I will provide solicited advice, based on a life filled with pratfalls and accidents (both in traffic and out). But – and I say this with a thing like love – let the questions come from the younger members of our congested world.

Fisher's most famous role may be that of Princess Leia, but she's also a published author and spent most of the '90s as a script consultant on films like "Hook," "Outbreak" and "The Wedding Singer."

"Advice from the Dark Side" will be updated weekly.
