The latest news about "Star Wars" Episode 8 star Carrie Fisher will surprise and even shock some fans of the blockbuster movie franchise. It appears from the revelations coming from Carrie herself, that she and Harrison Ford, who plays Han Solo, have an affair while they were shooting the original movie. This interesting revelation makes waiting for the upcoming sequel more exciting.
Carrie Says It Was An Intense Relationship
In an interview with People, the "Star Wars" Episode 8 star admitted her romantic fling with Harrison. "It was so intense," says the 60-year old Carrie (Princess Leia). "It was Han and Leia during the week, and Carrie and Harrison during the weekend," added the actress. She had hinted about this relationship for a number of years before.
At that time, Carrie was still at a very young age of 19, while Harrison was already in his early thirties. Their first night together, presumably according to Carrie, was after the birthday party of George Lucas, the original producer of "Star Wars." What followed is an affair that was only publicly revealed now.
Carrie's New Book Reveals It All
Carrie Fisher has written her memoirs in the form of a book with the title "The Princess Diarist." She discusses her romance with Harrison in this book. According to people, it seems that Harrison was given a copy of her book and knew that their affair would go public. There is no response from his rep when queried about his reactions to Carrie's revelations.
In her book, the "Star Wars" Episode 8 star reveals about her insecurities. "I looked over at Harrison. A hero's face a few strands of hair fell over his noble, slightly furrowed brow," Carrie writes. "How could you ask such a shining specimen of a man to be satisfied with the likes of me?" she added. At the time of their affair, Harrison was happily married to Mary Marquardt.
