Fisher says affair revelation bugged Ford

Star Wars actress Carrie Fisher says it probably "bugged" Harrison Ford that she lifted the lid on their affair.

The star, who played Princess Leia opposite Ford as Han Solo in the sci-fi films, revealed earlier this year that they had been a secret item on set.

Speaking on The Graham Norton Show this week, she acknowledged that the revelation may have been an unwelcome one for her ex.

She said she had told Ford of her plan to publish her diaries from the time.

"He joked about sending for a lawyer, so he was aware of them, and I told him that if there was anything he didn't like he should let me know. I sent them to him and waited for him to get back to me," she said on the show.

"He is incredibly private and I am sure the whole thing bugged him, but he comes out of it well. I liked him."

The 60-year-old added that even their main co-star was unaware of their romance.

"I promise you no one knew, not even Mark Hamill, and when I told him he was shocked.

"Harrison and I never spoke about it again. I saw him a lot because I became friends with his second wife and I can remember three times when we were all together that I, of course, made an oblique reference to it and he just grunted."

Fisher admitted she feels guilty for all the commotion, but said she never thought it would gather great attention.

"Four hundred thousand news sites picked up on it and it became a little embarrassing."

"They made a lot of things up which I now have to talk about - I never said he was bad in bed."
