Here's a very interesting moment from Celebration V from Chris.
"I was with my two friends Frankie and Joe waiting for Carrie Fisher to sign our posters and figures. After waiting for almost 90 minutes it was finally our turn. Frankie was up first, Ms Fisher asked him if he wanted his poster and figure personalized, after he responded "no", she asked if she could autograph his head. He laughed, thinking that she was joking and when he realized she was being serious, he bent over and she signed his head in a silver Sharpie. Next up was Joe, and this time she told him she was signing his head, didn't even bother to ask, again the silver Sharpie went across his scalp and bam our second free autograph. Finally it was my turn, at this point I was laughing from watching her sign my friends heads, she looked at me and said "hmm I guess I can't sign yours" to which I told her "you were my first crush, you can sign anywhere you'd like", and then I got my head signed. After my autograph, the three of us looked at one another in amazement, we could not believe that Princess Leia asked (and in one case demanded) to sign our heads... And no we didn't run to the tattoo booth to get them permanently stamped on..."
