J.J. Abrams was all praise for late 'extraordinary' Carrie Fisher and her 'beautiful and not long enough journey' at the recently concluded Golden Globe Awards.
According to People magazine, Abrams, who directed Fisher for 'Star Wars: The Force Awakens,' told reporters, 'It was beautiful and not long enough. She was extraordinary and it's impossible to really quantify the impact she had on not just legions of movies and books, but also her friends.'
On the same note, Golden Globes honoured the late actress and her mother Debbie Reynolds, at the award show.
He continued, 'The wisdom, the wit, the heart. She was like no other, so she's deeply missed.'
The director even mentioned that although they worked together recently, he knew Fisher for nearly two decades.
'I knew her actually since '96,' he said. 'Working with her, I got to know her better because it was as intense as it was. I feel truly blessed that I had the opportunity to work with her and be a friend.'
Fisher died on December 27, at age 60, after suffering a heart-attack while on a flight from London to Los Angeles. Her mother, Reynolds, 84, died just one day later, after being rushed to the hospital following a possible stroke.
