Fisher passed away early on Tuesday morning just a few days after suffering a massive heart attack mid-flight. Reynolds had posted on her Facebook page on Christmas day, two days ago, that Fisher was in stable condition in the ICU.

"My daughter, Carrie Fisher, is in stable condition in ICU," the post said. "If there is any change, the family will share the information at that time. To all her friends and fans, I thank you all for your prayers and good wishes."

In the hours after news of Fisher's death was made public by her own daughter, actress Billie Lourd, many of Hollywood's biggest stars -- many of whom knew and worked with Fisher throughout her illustrious career -- took to social media to pay their respects to the star, too.

"Star Wars" actor Mark Hamill, William Shatner, Bette Midler and more big names were among the celebrities that paid their respects publicly.

Carrie Fisher did more to combat mental health stigma by being open about her struggles with bipolar and addiction than did most politicians
So so sad to hear about the death of Carrie Fisher. 2016 has taught us one hell of a lesson.. don't take anyone for granted! Hurry up 2017!!
Carrie Fisher was the perfect reminder of what cool things can happen when you allow mental illness to inspire instead of repress.
I have no words. RIP Carrie Fisher.
Carrie Fisher you were a force throughout your life. And went away too soon dammit. RIP. And 2016 you suck.
Such a sad day for her family, friends and millions of fans. Carrie Fisher is deeply missed.
Incredibly sad to hear that we lost Carrie Fisher. She shared her life's triumphs and struggles with the world. I think that is heroic.
Carrie Fisher was one of the coolest women I had the pleasure of meeting. Too many good people dying way too young.
I love Princess Leia...I love Carrie Fisher's humor, wit & honesty even more. #RIP
May the Force be with you always, Princess Leia. Rest in Peace, Carrie Fisher. https://t.co/KJpkp5RYMU

Sweet, Brilliant, Irreverent, Huge hearted Carrie, You gave me advice I live by to this day, & always will. On the wings of angels fly...❤️
Well, 2016. Aren't you just a swift kick in the nuts. Carrie Fisher was a legend and a role model on how to speak your mind. What a loss.
#CarrieFisher was so witty and provocative and unrelentingly interesting. Goddamn, I loved her. Everyone did.
2016 is killing me. So sad in one week losing two greats. First George Michael now Carrie fisher. So sad. I just can't 😭😭😭! Rip both of you
From the same @WebMD Q&A w/ Carrie Fisher, a funny & gifted writer...on fixing bad scripts. https://t.co/TyLBiEiczE https://t.co/70J9CPtbJw
R.I.P. Carrie Fisher. A brilliantly funny, talented woman. We will miss your humor now more than ever.
RIP Carrie Fisher.
R.I.P. Carrie Fisher. Seeing her again on talk shows was such a thrill. So hilarious & fearless when she was being herself.
RIP Carrie Fisher. May the Force always be with you, Princess Leia.
Carrie Fisher dedicated her platform to mental health awareness & female empowerment. She is a reason + reminder to keep up your fight. RIP
Before Carrie Fisher, "Princess" was a condescension. She made it stand for strength, class, brains, wit & fire. RIP everyone's 1st crush.
No words. We love you @carrieffisher forever our Princess. May God bless you as richly as you blessed us… https://t.co/5EmQkvaxtp
I met Carrie Fisher at a premiere once. She was kind and gracious, had her daughter with her.
Carrie was my friend. It took me three series but I got her in the end. She was the most generous, fun, gifted, smart, kind, funny funny funny person I've ever met. She certainly wasn't ready to go. I'm so glad we became pals. I'm so devastated at her loss. I want to write about her more but I can't process yet.
Not Carrie Fisher. Just. Not. Carrie Fisher.
NOOOOOOOOOO!!!!! Not Carrie Fisher!!!!!! Damn!!!!!!! 💔😪😪🙏🏼for her family & friends (oh Ms Debbie Reynolds so sorry) #RIPCarrieFisher
