The Reason Carrie Fisher Began Her Affair With Harrison Ford Also Doubles As Excellent Real-Estate Advice

Carrie Fisher knows how to give a damn good press tour, so it was only natural that she would make a few cheeky talk-show rounds to publicize her new memoir, The Princess Diarist. The most explosive piece by far from Fisher’s latest literary outing has been her public declaration of her “intense” affair with fellow Star Wars actor Harrison Ford, but what exactly was the catalyst for their whirlwind romance? It’s as simple as “location, location, location,” pretty much. “That’s because everybody was away from home, so then the rules — I didn’t know this,” she explained on Ellen. “I was 19. No one told me about location rules, or lack of rules. But you can do whatever you want, as long as you film the movie. They can sleep together if their family’s not around.” Han and Leia for life.
