Actress Carrie Fisher recently spoke about a recent bipolar attack she encountered during a performance on a cruise ship in February.

The Princess Leia actress from the original Star Wars series was a headliner for a gay cruise in the Caribbean. According to People, Fisher slurred her words and rambled when she was on stage.

Fisher, 56, said "I went completely off the rails." A YouTube video was posted of her performance, but taken down. Around that time her rep issued a statement to explain she had a medical incident related to her bipolar disorder. She was hospitalized after the incident.

Fisher told People, "I was in a very severe manic state, which bordered on psychosis. Certainly delusional. I wasn't clear what was going on. I was just trying to survive."

Fisher explained that there are different versions of manic states and they are usually not as severe as the incident she had on the cruise.

She said during the cruise, she wasn't able to sleep and was constantly writing, and doesn't know what she wrote down.

"I do know this - and it was really bizarre - I was trapped in a metaphor. Everything I looked at had a meaning. Everything was a warning or a sign," she told People.

Fisher will reprise the role of Princess Leia in Star Wars Episode 7.
