Harrison Ford Addresses Carrie Fisher's Memoir in Interview with 'GQ'

Harrison Ford Addresses Carrie Fisher's Memoir in Interview with 'GQ'”

It kind of was the worst kept Star Wars secret, so it wasn't that big a shocker when Carrie Fisher revealed in her final book, The Princess Diarist, that she'd had a secret romance with co-star Harrison Ford.

The three-day auction in Los Angeles, starting October 7, will also include bound presentation scripts signed by movie director George Lucas for the 1977 first "Star Wars" movie, and sequels "The Empire Strikes Back" and "Return of the Jedi".

While most of the book went over the Hollywood actor's flaws and her journey towards adulthood, it also spent some time detailing her affair with her co-star, Harrison Ford.

Hundreds of other items of personal property and movie memorabilia owned by Fisher and her mother Debbie Reynolds, who died a day after her daughter, are being auctioned in the October 7-9 sale.

Turns out Ford hasn't read it.

"It was odd. For me", he told GQ magazine, admitting he did receive a little advance warning - "to a degree" - from Fisher, but didn't end up reading what she had written about their romance.

Carrie was 19 years old at the time of their relationship, while Harrison was 33 and married to his first wife Mary Marquardt, who he ended up divorcing in 1979. "I never thought about it before, but I guess he will be asked about the affair for the rest of his life!"

"You know, with Carrie's untimely passing, I don't really feel that it's a subject that I want to discuss", Ford told the publication.

"It was so intense", she said. It was proposed that I might make another appearance as Han Solo.

"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", the 60-year-old said. "It feels like an ambush to me, and I'm the one who wrote it".
