While the mother and daughter were estranged for almost a decade, in recent years the pair grew close. "It took like 30 years for Carrie to be really happy with me," Reynolds told People in an interview that took place before Carrie's death.

"I don't know what the problem ever was. I've had to work at it. I've always been a good mother, but I've always been in show business, and I've been on stage and I don't bake cookies and I don't stay home.

"It's very hard when your child doesn't want to talk to you and you want to talk to them, and you want to touch them, you want to hold them"' said Reynolds. "It was a total estrangement. She didn't talk to me for probably 10 years. So that was the most difficult time of all. Very painful, very heartbreaking.'

"We had a fairly volatile relationship earlier on in my 20s," Fisher told Oprah Winfrey in the same interview. "I didn't want to be around her. I did not want to be Debbie Reynolds' daughter."'
