NME Festival blog: Harrison Ford responds to Carrie Fisher questions in classic style

Harrison Ford has addressed last year’s revelations that he and Star Wars’ co-star Carrie Fisher had an affair in 1979.

In Fisher’s book ‘The Princess Diarist’, she opened up about her relationship with Ford, back when she was 19 and he was a 33-year-old father of two.

So far, Harrison hasn’t made any comments about Fisher’s claims. During a recent interview with GQ, he was asked about the book and the exchange was suitably awkward. See an excerpt below.

Q: How strange for you was it when Carrie Fisher put out her Star Wars book?

Ford: It was strange. For me.

Q: Did you have any advance warning?

Ford: Um, to a degree. Yes.

Q: And what did you think?

Ford: Oh, I don’t know. I don’t know. You know, with Carrie’s untimely passing, I don’t really feel that it’s a subject that I want to discuss.”

Q: Can I ask you whether you’d prefer that it hadn’t been written?

Ford: Yes. You can ask me.

Q: Do you want to answer?

Ford: No.

Q: Can I ask you whether you read it?

Ford: No. I didn’t.

“I was so inexperienced, but I trusted something about him. He was kind,” Fisher said of the affair.

Adding that the affair was “intense,” she continued: “It was Han and Leia during the week, and Carrie and Harrison during the weekend.”

Discussing their relationship after spending an evening together at a birthday party for director George Lucas, she continued: “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?”
