In an interview with People Magazine, Carrie Fisher went into detail about the affair she had with Harrison Ford while they were filming Star Wars in 1976. At the time, Fisher was just 19 years old, while Ford was 33 and married with two kids.
“It was so intense,” Fisher described. “It was Han and Leia during the week, and Carrie and Harrison during the weekend.”
What prompted Carrie Fisher to finally open up about this? Evidently, she had been going through the journals she kept while they were filming and felt the time had come to share those experiences with the world. Fisher has a book coming out on November 22, 2017, called The Princess Diarist, which will dive right in to her experiences.
