After 40 years of guarding her secret, Carrie Fisher finally decided to go public about an affair she had with her Star Wars co-star. At the tender age of 19, Carrie and Harrison Ford, who was at the time a 33-year old married man and father of two, had a tumultuous three month affair. This extra-marital engagement took place during the filming of the original Star Wars film in 1976.

According to the actress, who is now 60, the affair was quite intense for both of them. She made this revelation during an interview with PEOPLE magazine. News of this real-life romance was something that most die-hard fans of the Stars Wars Movie franchise had wished for ever since Han Solo and the remarkably beautiful Princess Leah locked hearts on-screen. Carrie was even quoted saying, “It was all Han and Leah during the week, but on the weekends, it was just Carrie and Harrison”.

After coming across some angst-ridden journals she had saved while filming on location in London, Fisher thought it was probably time to open up about her very revealing formative experience. She explained that it had been 40 years since the affair ended, so there was no reason to keep it a secret any longer. Her feelings are well-articulated in her book titled The Princess Diarist, whose excerpts were in this week’s issue of PEOPLE.

Ford, who got a heads up about Fisher’s book through a draft copy, did not or was unwilling to respond to any requests from the press for comments.

The story goes that after spending their first night together following a birthday party event for Director George Lucas, Carrie was filled with self-doubt. In her book, the actress writes, “I looked over to Harrison, saw a hero’s face with a few hairs falling over his slightly furrowed and noble brow, and asked myself, how such a shining specimen of man could possibly be satisfied with someone like me”.

According to the former Star Wars actress, their improbable romance took her by complete surprise and only lasted for the course of the film. However, despite how improbable it was, Fisher still has fond memories of her time with Ford. In statement made to PEOPLE magazine, she said “I was so inexperienced at the time, but the thing I trusted about him was that he kind”.

After almost 40 years of keeping her affair secret, Carrie Fisher finally came clean. To some it may come as a surprise, but there are rumors that other cast members knew or suspected that the two were more than co-workers.
