Though Carrie Fisher is a Hollywood legend, Bryan Lourd is a well-known personality in his own right. The 56-year-old talent scout is the managing director and co-founder of Creative Arts Agency (CAA), a company with nearly 2,000 employees to manage its prestigious A-list clientele like Robert De Niro, George Clooney, Robert Downey Jr., Drew Barrymore, Brad Pitt, Madonna, and Matthew McConaughey.

Bryan Lourd Came Out as Bisexual after Split with Carrie Fisher
Lourd was in a long-term relationship with Carrie Fisher in the 1990s, following her split from musician Paul Simon. However, the couple parted ways after Lourd came out of the closet as bisexual. The pair made headlines following news of their break up, as Lourd left Fisher to be with a man. In an interview, Fisher confessed, “People ask if it lessens the blow that he left me for a man because it’s a rejection of my gender and so isn’t personal. But I don’t care what people say – I was humiliated and betrayed, and I believed I’d somehow messed up. I don’t know if I believed I made him gay, but I’d failed, and that’s all that really counts.”
