In her new book,
The Princess Diarist, Carrie Fisher admits that she and Harrison Ford had an affair while filming the first Star Wars.
And thousands of
Star Wars fans cried out: “We know!” (Or, well, suspected, as it’s been insinuated by Fisher and others many times in recent years.)
“I didn’t say anything to anybody for years but it’s not like anyone’s deeply affected by it anymore,” Fisher told People magazine. At the time, Ford was 33 and married with two kids; Fisher was 18.
Radar got their hands on an early copy of the book and are spilling more details, but Fisher is urged journalists to “read the book before they write their stories” in a follow-up with People.
Fisher did give Ford a heads-up and a draft of the book, but he has yet to comment. (Don’t hold your breathe.)

The Force Awakens production company, Foodles Production, has pled guilty in the hydraulic door accident that injured Harrison Ford during the filming of The Force Awakens. The weight of the door was compared to that of a “small car.”

Variety, composer John Williams says he has every intention of returning to score his eighth Star Wars film.
“If I can do it, I certainly will. I told Kathy Kennedy I’m happy to do it, but the real reason is, I didn’t want anybody else writing music for Daisy Ridley,” he quips.
Williams also says he has no intention of retiring. His next film, before VIII, will be Steven Spielberg’s
Ready Player One.
Williams received the American Film Institute’s Life Achievement Award Thursday night. The ceremony, which features
Spielberg, George Lucas, J.J. Abrams, Harrison Ford and more paying tribute, will air on TNT June 15th at 10:00 p.m. ET/PT.
