Harrison Ford has issued a statement to People following Carrie Fisher’s death today, and it is a gut punch:
“Carrie was one-of-a-kind… brilliant, original… Funny and emotionally fearless. She lived her life, bravely… My thoughts are with her daughter Billie, her mother Debbie, her brother Todd, and her many friends. We will all miss her.”
Earlier this year Fisher had revealed that the two had an affair in 1977 while filming Star Wars.
Of Ford, she said “I looked over at Harrison. A hero’s face — a few strands of hair fell over his noble, slightly furrowed brow… How could you ask such a shining specimen of a man to be satisfied with the likes of me?”
