Carrie Fisher Reveals Why She Chose Open Up About Harrison Ford Affair

Carrie Fisher is explaining why she chose to reveal she had an affair with her Star Wars co-star Harrison Ford.

The 60-year-old actress opened up about the affair, which occurred when she was just 19-years-old and Harrison was a 33-year-old married father of two, in her new book The Princess Diarist.

“It’s been 40 years! I didn’t say anything to anybody for years but it’s not like anyone’s deeply affected by it anymore,” Carrie said of why she chose to share the secret.

She added, “Harrison‘s very private, but I think I waited an appropriate amount of time. How much longer could I wait?”
