"It was Han and Leia during the week, and Carrie and Harrison during the weekend", Fisher told People.
Like Romeo and Juliet before them, Han Solo and Leia Organa are star-crossed lovers who inspired a generation of hopeless space-obsessed romantics.
A long time ago, on a movie set far, far away, Carrie Fisher and Harrison Ford hooked up - but he didn't exactly rock her world, the "Stars Wars" actress says.
Well, one of those entries the then 19-year-old wrote includes details of her affair with a then 34-year-old Harrison Ford! "It's been 40 years", explains Fisher, who went on to write The Princess Diarist, excerpted exclusively in this week's issue.
The two spent their first night together after a birthday party for George Lucas, and she was full of insecurity. She said she "relentlessly" wanted him to love her, often fantasizing, she recalled, that he would ask her to marry him with a "gold band with diamonds (inscribed) 'Carrison"'. I had a crush on Harrison for sure.
While Fisher has hinted in the past that the pair may have fooled around, she gets down and dirty in the book, revealing that he allegedly got her drunk and seduced her during filming, part of which took place in Tunisia. At that time, Ford was married to his first wife Mary Marquardt, and had two children (the couple divorced in 1979). According to People, the actress sent Ford a copy of her memoir as well as a "heads up" about what it revealed.
"It was so intense", she said about the real-life romance going on behind the scenes. "He was kind." Apparently, her alleged romance with Ford wasn't anything Fisher expected and it came to an end once the original Star Wars wrapped.
