A long time ago in a flat far, far away Mark Hamill once nearly caught Carrie Fisher and Harrison Ford having sex.
Or at least that’s what Carrie Fisher claims in her book, The Princess Diarist, where she alleges that Mark once turned up at Ford’s apartment unannounced when they were having an ‘adult sleepover’.
The Star Wars’ actress claims that she and Hollywood icon Ford engaged in an ‘intense’ 12-week relationship back in 1976 when she was just 19 and he was 33 years-old, The Mirror reports.
Once, on one of the rare occasions when we did have a sleepover at Harrison’s apartment, Mark … dropped by unannounced. Clearly I hadn’t just dropped by for brunch.
Luckily for the pair it seems that Ford’s as quick thinking as his on-screen counterpart and used reverse psychology on Hamill to avoid suspicion by joking they were engaged.
Despite revealing the affair – which happened when Ford was married – Fisher’s gone decidedly quiet on the topic, admitting on Twitter she won’t be revealing any more about the pair’s dalliance insisting the act itself is ‘private’.
Sex is private. So it is with uncharacteristic reservation and scruples that I quash any details.
The pair’s affair ended when Star Wars wrapped, but it’s clear that Carrie remembers their romance fondly saying it was nothing but ‘friendly feelings and wonderful sex’.
