Carrie Fisher recently revealed she had an affair with “Star Wars” co-star Harrison Ford in a tell-all book and she stopped by “The Late Show with Stephen Colbert” to address it.
Fisher admitted the attention has been a bit overwhelming. “I can’t handle it,” she joked. “I’m sure he can’t handle it at all.”
When asked why she’s only making the revelation now, Fisher explains: “It was too big of a story. It was 40 years ago. If I’d waited 50, I’d have looked worse, so that’s why now is the right time.”
Colbert and Fisher also read a series of mock revelations that didn’t make Princess Leia’s new book, with highlights including: “The Ewoks, they screwed like rabbits!” and “we had a lot of pranks on the set and one time we cut off Mark Hamill’s hand and they decided to keep that in the movie.”
