On November 22, 2016, a little over a month before her unexpected death on December 27, Carrie Fisher released The Princess Diarist, a revealing book in which the actress gave fans a candid and hilarious look at what went on behind the scenes on the set of the first Star Wars film.
Fisher did not just stop at the hijinks that took place during filming, she also revealed some intimate details about her personal life like her three-month "intense" affair with her co-star, Harrison Ford.
The actress who played Princess Leia alongside Ford's Han Solo was only 19 when she dated the 33-year-old actor, who was a married father of two at the time.
“It was Han and Leia during the week, and Carrie and Harrison during the weekend,” she told People Magazine in an interview last year.
When the magazine asked why she chose to disclose this information when she did, she replied, "It's been 40 years!"
Fisher said that she gave Ford a heads up before including the details of their tryst in the book.
"Harrison’s very private, but I think I waited an appropriate amount of time. How much longer could I wait?”
Now, nearly a year since the book hit shelves, Ford has broken his silence on Fisher's confession about their romance.
