Harrison Ford has given a public statement about the tragic passing of his ‘Star Wars‘ co-star, and all-around incredible actor, writer, mental illness-advocate, feminist and human being Carrie Fisher.
His statement read,
“Carrie was one-of-a-kind…brilliant, original. Funny and emotionally fearless.
She lived her life, bravely.
We will all miss her.”
He goes on to say that his thoughts were with her mother, Debbie Reynolds, her daughter Billie Lourd, and her brother Todd Fisher.
Ford and Fisher starred together as star-crossing lovers in iconic space opera ‘Star Wars‘, and Fisher recently broke news in her book, ‘The Princess Diarist‘ (her journals from the time) that she and Ford had had a 3-month affair on the set of the film.
At the time, she was 19 – Ford was 33, and was married with two children.
She’d previously said she’d felt uncomfortable about releasing the diaries from her time on set as it meant she was lifting the lid on their relationship, telling PEOPLE:
“He’s incredibly private. I feel really bad about doing that to him.
But yes, I told him I found the journals and I was going to publish them, and he sort of went, ‘Lawyer!’”
The pair had remained on good terms, however, starring in last year’s ‘Star Wars‘ film, ‘The Force Awakens’.
We’re heartbroken; absolutely heartbroken.
