In the latest “Star Wars” sequel, fans found out that Princess Leia and Han Solo were a couple — even producing an unfortunately evil son — but had broken up at some point over the years.
While the film doesn’t exactly make it clear why the two split, Carrie Fisher spilled the beans during an appearance at the Saskatoon Comic & Entertainment Expo held this weekend in Saskatoon.
“He smuggled way too much,” Fisher jokes about the reason behind Leia’s split from Han. “And girls, I know you don’t want your husband smuggling, do you? Hanging out with the hairy guy too often. I think there are a lot of problems with that. He wouldn’t take me on the hyperspace thing enough… [that’s a] euphemism.”
She also jokes about her iconic character’s somewhat unfortunate hairstyles. “I want to see what bad hairstyle they think of for this time,” she quips, referencing the “hairy earphones” from the 1977 original and the “baboon ass” from “The Force Awakens,” joking: “That is the worst one now so far. It does look like a baboon’s ass. Not that that’s a bad thing, just not as a hairstyle.” Watch:
