Carrie Fisher is setting the record straight about a classic Star Wars rumor. As revealed in the new book The Princess Diarist, there was nothing "alleged" about that Carrie Fisher and Harrison Ford affair. According to Fisher, that shit definitely happened and was just as "intense" as you would hope.
"It was so intense," Fisher told People Tuesday of the fling, which took place during the OG Star Wars shoot in 1976 when she was 19 and Ford was 33. "It was Han and Leia during the week, and Carrie and Harrison during the weekend." Fisher came across her own writings on the affair while reviewing journals she kept during the London shoot and decided to include them in her new book because, as she puts it, "it's been 40 years."
Though Most Deplorable Man Alive publisher People noted that Ford was a "33-year-old married father of two" at the time, Fisher said she gave him a "heads-up" about the book and even sent him an early copy. "I was so inexperienced, but I trusted something about him," Fisher said of their relationship. "He was kind."
A separate alleged excerpt from Fisher's Princess Diarist claims the celebrated actress and writer didn't remember a ton of specifics about her three-month relationship with Ford because the weed was too damn strong, per Radar:
Carrie couldn't remember many details of their three-month relationship because of "the brutal strength of Harrison's preferred strain of pot."
Caught up in your own high-profile affair? That's cool. Do your thing. But maybe consider following Fisher's lead, i.e. wait at least 40 years to tell everyone about it.
