(Newser) – Princess Leia has finally 'fessed up to some off-camera laser-play with Han Solo during the filming of Star Wars, the Sun reports. "I went on the film saying ‘I’m going to have an affair,’ like it was a kiwi, an exotic fruit," Carrie Fisher tells the British show Bring Back, "because I’d never had one!"  She confesses to having a crush on co-star Harrison Ford.

“Harrison is great fun when he’s had a few drinks,” the 51-year-old actress recalls. “Once I left the room and came back and he was in the closet not wearing a lot of clothes.”
