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?”

    Carrie Fisher is desparate to sell her book. She needs that cash and needs it faaaaaaaaaaaaaast. GET THAT CASH CARRIE FISHER!!

  • Pat Kerr

    Totally agree. Kept quiet about it for 40 years until she had a book to sell. Not classy but desperate

    This is an interesting story about some of the methods for producing “chemistry” between actors. And obviously in this case it involves the romance being literal off-screen as well.

    I don’t think that must sit well for Ford and Calista. He was married at the time and if Calista didn’t know that he cheated with the first wife, imagine the cold now.

    Rumors have been flying around for years now about the two of them having an affair. At least they have in the star wars community. Not really that shocking to be honest. I get the impression they no longer get along.
