While always planning to share the souvenir, Fisher said she did not want to “ambush” Ford. Fisher also felt that she was not negatively representing her lover.

“I don’t think that appears to be the case, or it is indeed offensive,” she said. “It simply came to our notice then. It’s smooth. I mean, the way people treat me is funny to me too. I would do it at 73. ”
