Hollywood legend Carrie Fisher reveals she got up close with Harrison Ford while filming the iconic Star Wars movies.
The 51-year-old actress is still best known for impressing millions of teenage boys with her buns as Princess Leia.
Now, after decades of rumours, she finally spills the beans on her relationship with ever-hunky Harrison, 63, who played Han Solo.
She tells Justin Lee Collins in new C4 show Bring Back . . . Star Wars: "I went on the film saying 'I'm going to have an affair', like it was a kiwi, an exotic fruit -- because I'd never had one!"
She adds: "I had a crush on Harrison for sure. Harrison is great fun when he's had a few drinks."
Shaking her head and saying: "I'm going to get in so much trouble," she adds: "Once I left the room and came back and he was in the closet not wearing a lot of clothes."
About Han Solo & Princess Lea – Star Wars Trilogy:
Even more satisfying than couples tragically torn apart by the world, are those that can’t stay apart no matter how much they fight it.
It’s a big screen affirmation of the well know romantic cliché that ‘opposites attract’.
They might bicker, squabble and even claim to loath each other, but we all know it’s going to end in some serious kissing.
One perfect example of this is Han Solo and Princess Lea.
He’s a cynical intergalactic smuggler, who’s roguishly charming.
She’s an idealistic princess, who’s bossy and beautiful.
On paper they couldn’t be more wrong for each other, but from the moment they meet the romantic fireworks between them put the Death Star explosion to shame.
It was clear to everyone that so long as intergalactic civil war didn’t keep interrupting them it was only a matter of time before their name calling banter turned into a passionate space embrace.
Though some credit has to go to Carrie Fisher for bravely sipping into a Gold Bikini, Harrison Ford’s perfectly smug smile is probably most responsible for the electric chemistry between the two.
The force was with them? Carrie Fisher admits in her upcoming book, The Princess Diarist, that she and and Harrison Ford had a secret, three-month affair while filming the first Star Wars movie in 1976.
