Carrie Fisher finally settles Luke vs. Han debate
For years geeks the world over wondered if Carrie Fisher ever had a thing for her Star Wars co-stars, and finally, thanks to the U.K. TV show Bring Back ... Star Wars, she confirms that she was taking the name Princess Leia a bit too seriously.
"I went on the film saying ‘I’m going to have an affair’, like it was a kiwi, an exotic fruit — because I’d never had one!” she tells the show's Justin Lee Collins. And Harrison Ford was her target.
“I had a crush on Harrison for sure. Harrison is great fun when he’s had a few drinks,” she says. Shenanigans ensued. “I’m going to get in so much trouble; Once I left the room and came back and he was in the closet not wearing a lot of clothes.”
Actually, the idea of Han Solo naked is kind of weird, so she switches gears and talks about what Mark Hamill thought about all this, saying there was "some jealousy."
“Harrison had this enormous career by the second or third film, that was tough for Mark." Fisher says. "He was like, ‘This wasn’t supposed to happen — it’s the adventures of Luke Skywalker.’ ”
It sure sounds like Fisher and Ford were the ones having the adventures.
