Carrie Fisher Reveals She and Harrison Ford Had a Secret Affair
Carrie Fisher has a new book (The Princess Diarist) on the way, and in it she claims she and Star Wars co-star Harrison Ford had a steamy secret affair while filming their first interplanetary adventure together in 1976.
According to Radar Online, Fisher writes that their short-lived romance began when Ford drove her home one night when she was too “wine sodden” to drive herself. She was 19 at the time, while Ford was 34 and married with two kids.
The actress even shares that their first dalliance wasn’t all that satisfying, but she let it slide because “he was really handsome.”
In another excerpt, Fisher reportedly writes that she tried “relentlessly” to get Ford to love her and indulged fantasies which involved the actor proposing with a gold ring inscribed with the word “Carrison.”
But the 60-year-old actress also admits that their three-month romance is a blur due to “the brutal strength of Harrison’s preferred strain of pot.”
Since the excerpts were leaked online, Fisher confirmed the “intense” affair to People, saying, “It was Han and Leia during the week, and Carrie and Harrison during the weekend.”
Fisher’s new book The Princess Diarist arrives November 22, 2016.
