In her new memoir titled "The Princess diarist," Carrie Fisher surprises us by revealing many secrets in her affair with Han Solo while filming Star Wars: A New Hope in 1976, reports People.
At the time, Fisher, who had grown up in Hollywood as the daughter of silver-screen royalty Debbie Reynolds and Eddie Fisher, was 19. Ford was a 33-year-old father of two. Her book, which is excerpted in People, goes into detail about their affair, saying that the two first got together after a birthday party for director George Lucas.
According to Carrie Fisher‘s new book, Harrison Ford would frequently offer to drive her home when she was “wine sodden,” and eventually it led to an affair beginning, Radar Online reports. She also added that her memory of the relationship was very light thanks to “the brutal strength of Harrison’s preferred strain of pot.”
“It was so intense,” Fisher told People. “It was Han and Leia during the week, and Carrie and Harrison during the weekend.”
Fisher writes that she tried "relentlessly" to make Ford fall in love with her. She dreamed about him giving her an engagement ring inscribed "Carrison".
The actress has teased her crush for her co-star in the past. “I was obsessed with Harrison long before it became fashionable; I was a trendsetter in that sense. I started a craze,” she said in her A.F.I tribute.
But in a March 2016 interview with Jonathan Ross, the host asked if any of her journals contain memories of a Ford-Fisher hookup. She responded that they “seemed to be trending in that direction.” She wavers a bit; however: “But it didn’t happen!” she insists, before adding: “I haven’t read through to the end. It’s a lot of typing.”
“So it might happen?” Ross asks.
Fisher keeps it interesting: “It might happen, it might not happen.”
Fisher also took to Twitter on Tuesday to clarify that Ford, now 74 and married to actress Calista Flockhart, wasn’t bad in bed.
“I would never talk about how someone was in any furniture, chair, bed, coffee table or otherwise,” she wrote.
At the time, Harrison was married to his first wife, Mary Marquardt, with whom he had two sons with; following the film’s 1976 wrap, he went back to her; the two divorced years later.
