Han Solo and Princess Leia is one of the greatest love stories in all of cinema.
And now, nearly 40 years after the release of the original trilogy that made them so famous, Carrie Fisher has finally revealed that the chemistry between her and Harrison Ford wasn't only on-screen.
At the time, she was 19, and he was 33, married, and the father of two kids. But none of that stopped them from having a passionate affair while filming the first Star Wars film in 1976.
"It was so intense," she told People. "It was Han and Leia during the week, and Carrie and Harrison during the weekend."
Fisher writes about the long-rumored romance in her new book, The Princess Diarist, which Harrison Ford received an early copy of, along with advance notice about the big reveal.
In one excerpt, she describes how she was riddled with insecurity after their first night together, which was after a birthday party for George Lucas.
"I looked over at Harrison. A hero's face—a few strands of hair fell over his noble, slightly furrowed brow. How could you ask such a shining specimen of a man to be satisfied with the likes of me?"
According to her book, the young starlet "relentlessly" chased him around, and fantasized about him proposing to her with "a gold band with diamonds (inscribed) 'Carrison.'"
She also claims that his 1979 divorce from his first wife, Mary Marquardt, happened "for reasons having nothing whatsoever to do with me."
And though the affair only lasted three months and ended as soon as the film wrapped, she has fond memories of their time together, few as those memories may be thanks to "the brutal strength of Harrison's preferred strain of pot."
"I was so inexperienced, but I trusted something about him," she said. "He was kind."
