It was unusual: Ford on Fisher revealing their affair

17 September 2017

Fisher will make her final "Star Wars" appearance in the upcoming "Star Wars: The Last Jedi", and though Ford's character, Han Solo, was killed in "The Force Awakens", the actor has not ruled out a return.

Harrison Ford has finally acknowledged the memoir written by his late co-star, actress Carrie Fisher.

Asked by GQ how he felt when Fisher's book came out, Ford said, "It was unusual".

Ford: Oh, I don't know.

The late actress - who passed away in December a year ago at the age of 60 - made a shocking revelation a month prior to her death when her memoir, "The Princess Diarist", detailed the "intense" affair she had with her "Star Wars" co-star, and Harrison has now broken his silence on the subject.

Ford was 33, married and the father of two at the time.

While fan's might wonder whether Ford was shocked that a secret that's been kept for over forty years suddenly came to light, the actor says that it wasn't that much of a surprise.

As to whether he had any advance warning about Fisher's revelations, Ford was more circumspect.

"Oh, I don't know".

But the star, now 75, has admitted he'd rather not discuss the topic further out of respect to Carrie after her untimely passing.

"Um, I mean, I'm finished with Star Wars if Star Wars is finished with me", said Ford. "I never thought about it before, but I guess he will be asked about the affair for the rest of his life!"

She said: "I wouldn't have ambushed him like that, but it's still ... no matter if I told him or not, it probably feels like an ambush". "It feels like an ambush to me, and I'm the one who wrote it".

As she promoted the book, Carrie claimed she had given Harrison a heads up about her plans to reveal all about their three-month extramarital affair while shooting Star Wars: Episode IV - A New Hope in 1976, and even sent him a draft - but he didn't respond.
