On The Late Show, Stephen Colbert asked Carrie Fisher why she chose to reveal she’d had an affair with Harrison Ford while filming Star Wars.
“I found the diaries and decided to publish them, and it was a mistake,” Fisher said.
“It was a mistake, really?” Colbert asked.
“No, but it is too big of a story that I can’t handle,” Fisher replied.
“Can you not handle it or can Harrison Ford not handle it?” Colbert said, and the studio audience laughed when Fisher said, “I’m sure he can’t handle it at all.”
And, while other true details can be found in Fisher’s book The Princess Diarist, Colbert and Fisher did a bit in which they read fictional Star Wars revelations, like this one:
“And, you know who had actually the most sex out of the whole cast,” Fisher joked. “The Ewoks. They screwed like rabbits. It’s true. Their trailer had to be hosed out twice a day.”
