Revealing so much of her personal story via The Princess Diarist, actress Carrie Fisher is dealing with the fallout from her admission. The big rumor now fact that she shared in an affair with Harrison Ford as the public and personal toll continues to grow. If only to add an extra layer to the saga that engulfs the Star Wars icons, 60-year old Fisher explained to Rolling Stone that her lover and Han Solo actor threatened legal action prior to releasing the book.
So intrinsically linked to the 70s, Fisher's memoir was widely talked about and apt given the co-stars reprisal of their roles in Star Wars: The Force Awakens. As she would go on to state, there was another side to Ford as he made a shock step to try and quash the story.
Fisher Happy To Print Her Story, Ford Reluctant
Opening up to Rolling Stone, Fisher retold how her interactions began again with Ford as she wanted to tell everything, regardless of the consequences.
“I told him I found the diaries, which I had not seen since I’d written them and that I was gonna publish them,” Fisher began. “He just said, ‘Lawyer.’ I told him he could take out anything he didn’t like. I sent it to him, but he never commented. I guess he didn’t loathe anything. I know the whole thing embarrasses him. That’s what it’s for, to embarrass all of us again."
To make the fallout somewhat sad, she states that Ford has not given her any type of reaction since the book came out.
“I would like to hear what he thought of it," admits Princess Leia. "He knew that I was kind of infatuated with him at the time. But what he thought, I don’t know. We weren’t communicating a lot.”
Fisher Ponders Life Without Star Wars
Exploring the idea if the actress was living a long, long time ago in a galaxy far away, Fisher was quizzed as to how different her life would be life if she never got the break in the iconic franchise.
"Utterly," she said. "It's sort of the engine that pushed everything else through. I would have been a writer, though. I didn't really mean to be an actress. But if your second movie is Star Wars, you're done. You're gonna be pursuing that because otherwise it'll pursue you."
Even though the fans can be passionate to say the least, Fisher would not talk down to them and argues the series deserves to be taken seriously.
"Over the years I've considered that that they're not just movies," Fisher says. "It's sort of this weird lifestyle; I've watched families raise their kids with it. It's adorable and freaky at the same time."
