Carrie Fisher has turned a long-held rumor into a lewd and exciting reality.
In an interview with People Magazine, the veteran actress has confirmed what many have suspected over the years.
She did, indeed, carry on an affair with Harrison Ford back in 1976, while the duo filmed the original Star Wars.
And it wasn’t just any affair, Fisher explains. It was hot, it was heavy and it was quite steamy!
“It was so intense,” Fisher tells People, citing her character of Princess Leia and Ford’s character of Han Solo and adding:
“It was Han and Leia during the week, and Carrie and Harrison during the weekend.”
If we know what she means! (Editor’s Note: she means they had sexual intercourse when the cameras were not filming, once they were alone, probably in a hotel room near set.)
At the time of this romantic dalliance, Fisher was 19 years old and Ford was 33. He was also a married father of two.
Why is Fisher coming out with this secret now?
She says she came across a handful of journals and felt the time was simply right to open up about her personal life.
It likely doesn’t hurt that this juicy nugget will help her sell copies of her memoir, “The Princess Diarist.”
Ford was reportedly given an advanced copy of the book and asked to comment on this alleged affair by People.
He declined to do so.
After spending their first (NAKED!) night together following a birthday party for director George Lucas, Fisher writes about how she was full of self-doubt.
She didn’t feel very good about herself, despite the man lying next to her.
Or really because of the man lying next to her.
“I looked over at Harrison. A hero’s face – a few strands of hair fell over his noble, slightly furrowed brow,” she writes.
“How could you ask such a shining specimen of a man to be satisfied with the likes of me?”
Fisher goes on to say she didn’t plan to sleep with Ford and never dreamed it would happen when she first crossed his path.
But that doesn’t mean she has any regrets.
She says she remembers her brief time with Ford very fondly, even if he may choose to forget it or not discuss it in public.
“I was so inexperienced, but I trusted something about him,” she says. “He was kind.”
And pretty easy on the eyes, too!
How did their first night of lovemaking come about?
In the book, Fisher says Ford got her drunk and seduced her during filming, part of which took place in Tunisia.
The pair ended up in bed after Ford, who is now 74, offered to drive a “wine sodden” Fisher home, she claims.
In another excerpt, Ford says she tried “relentlessly” to make Ford truly love her and came up with fantasies of the actor proposing to her with a “gold band with diamonds (inscribed) ‘Carrison.'”
Alas, this was never more than a tryst.
In her memoir, finally, Fisher notes that she’s unclear on the details of her and Ford’s three-month relationship because of “the brutal strength of Harrison’s preferred strain of pot.”
Well… okay then!
We’re starting to understand why Ford has no comment here.
The Princess Diarist comes out on November 22. Will you read it?
