Carrie Fisher has hit out at Star Wars director George Lucas, claiming she hated working on the sci-fi movies.

Fisher made her name playing PRINCESS LEIA in the trilogy - but she claims Lucas was difficult to work for, the script was "impossible" and the costumes too revealing.

She moans, "(Lucas) often treated the cast like puppets, just directing our heads.

"I think he was frustrated that we weren't animated clay. We used to call ourselves trick talking meat. As for the dialogue, you could type the stuff but you couldn't say it. It was impossible."

She adds of the outfits, "Not only is it revealing, it doesn't go where you go. If you were standing behind me, you could see all the way to Florida."
