Princess Leia Unloads!
Carrie Fisher has an explosive new book about her “Star Wars” adventures coming out, and it includes some revelations about her and Han Solo!
Here’s how Google describes the book:
“When Carrie Fisher recently discovered the journals she kept during the filming of the first Star Wars movie, she was astonished to see what they had preserved-plaintive love poems, unbridled musings with youthful naivet , and a vulnerability that she barely recognized. Today, her fame as an author, actress, and pop-culture icon is indisputable, but in 1977, Carrie Fisher was just a (sort-of) regular teenager.”
Princess Leia’s Affair With Han Solo!
It seems that Fisher is going to share a LOT of behind-the-scenes revelations!
According to The Daily Beast:
“Carrie Fisher unveiled details of a secret relationship with her Star Wars co-star Harrison Ford in her forthcoming book, The Princess Diarist. Fisher, now 60, said the two began sleeping together one night in 1976 when Ford, then 32, offered to drive her, then 19, home while filming the beloved film franchise’s first installation. The affair lasted three months, she said, and she “relentlessly” wanted him to love her, often fantasizing, she recalled, that he would ask her to marry him with a “gold band with diamonds (inscribed) ‘Carrison.”’
According to the article:
“at the end of filming Star Wars, Ford returned to his wife Mary and two children (he and Mary divorced in 1979). Fisher has been rather open about off-screen life during the Star Wars filming, telling The Daily Beast last year that she and Ford partied with the Rolling Stones and members of the Monty Python troupe.”
Carrie Fisher is already a best-selling Author of books like “Postcards From The Edge”, and I cannot wait to read her latest memoir!
Of course, there was a more modern “Princess Leia” I shared with you:
Yes, I worked with Olivia Munn at G4, and her “Slave Leia” outfit turned a lot of head at our Star Wars convention coverage! See more pics here:
I also shared some great “Star Wars” news for fans of Disneyland – the first sketches of the new “Star Wars” land being built there:
