[Blind Gossip] This actor with the long film career was recently subjected to a little embarrassment. A former costar from a classic movie revealed that the two of them had a affair during filming. Yes, our actor was married at the time.
Well, if he wants to avoid being further embarrassed, our actor should hope that his other costars are better at keeping their mouths shut!
Why? Because although his infidelity cost him his first marriage, he didn’t seem to learn his lesson.
While married to his second wife, he had a very torrid affair with his female costar from a completely different famous film!

Actor: Harrison Ford
First Actress/Film: Carrie Fisher
Second Actress/Film: TBA
Carrie Fisher and Harrison Ford had a three-month affair while filming the original Star Wars (later retitled Star Wars: Episode IV – A New Hope).
Harrison Ford was really embarrassed when Fisher recently revealed this. However, he probably doesn’t care about any of that right now.
That’s because Carrie Fisher passed away today at the age of 60.
Fisher was born Hollywood royalty. She was the daughter of actress Debbie Reynolds and singer Eddie Fisher. When Carrie was young, Eddie Fisher left Debbie Reynolds for her best friend, actress Elizabeth Taylor. You don’t get more Hollywood than that!
Not surprisingly, Carrie Fisher had a star-studded personal life of her own. Besides the affair with Harrison Ford while they were filming Star Wars, she was engaged to actor Dan Ackroyd, whom she met while they were filming Blues Brothers. Did you know that she fell in love with him after Ackroyd saved her life? It’s true. She was she was choking on a Brussels sprout and Ackroyd performed the Heimlich maneuver on her!
Fisher later married singer Paul Simon (of Simon & Garfunkel). After they divorced, she settled down with CAA agent Bryan Lourd. Although they never married, she called him her husband and they had one child, actress Billie Lourd.
A privileged Hollywood upbringing didn’t stop Carrie Fisher from forging her own very prolific professional path. From playing Princess Leia in Star Wars to playing Sally’s best friend Marie in When Harry Met Sally, Fisher always made an impression on screen.
While she was very wealthy, Fisher always worked hard. Did you know that she completed over forty movies? There were also countless TV appearances.
Despite never having graduated from high school, Fisher loved to read and had very successful writing career that included many books, including the semi-autobiographical Postcards From The Edge. She was also the script doctor on dozens of films, including Sister Act, Outbreak, The Wedding Singer, and Mr. and Mrs. Smith.
Carrie Fisher was a remarkable woman who led a remarkable life. She is gone much too soon. RIP, Carrie!
