Carrie Fisher's Secret Affair Exposed

Carrie Fisher unveiled details of a secret relationship on the ‘Star Wars’ set in her forthcoming book, ‘The Princess Diarist’.

The actress, screenwriter and memoirist has revealed that while filming ‘Star Wars’ in 1976, the then-19-year-old Fisher and co-star Harrison Ford, who was a 33-year-old father of two at that time, carried on an affair for three months.

"It was so intense," Fisher told People magazine. "It was Han and Leia during the week, and Carrie and Harrison during the weekend."


"I was so inexperienced, but I trusted something about him," she added. "He was kind."

The two stars spent their first night together after a birthday party for George Lucas, Fisher recalls in her book (out Nov. 22). “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?”
