carrie fisher

Life finally makes sense. Jewish actress Carrie Fisher has FINALLY confirmed a juicy bit of gossip: She and Harrison Ford, her “Star Wars” co-star, had an affair back in the day. They began their clandestine affair on the set of the first “Star Wars” film in 1976, when then 33-year-old Ford was married with two children. Yikes.

Fisher opened up in People, explaining what happened:

“It was so intense. I was so inexperienced, but I trusted something about him. He was kind.

It was Han and Leia during the week, and Carrie and Harrison during the weekend.”

The now-60-year-old actress said their affair lasted about three months in her new memoir, “The Princess Diarist.” She apparently sent Ford a copy of her memoir to let him know what she actually revealed. Ford is currently married to his third wife, Calista Flockhart, and they have one child together.

As for Fisher, keep on keeping on.
