How Billie Lourd Felt About Reading Carrie Fisher’s Memoir About Her Affair With Harrison Ford

Carrie Fisher shared detailed information about herself throughout her life and career. One of Fisher’s biggest bombs came a month before she died. In November 2016, she released a memoir with the name Princess Diarist. In the book, diaries describe Fisher’s relationship with her Star Wars co-star, Harrison Ford.

Before she released a memoir, Fisher shared parts of the book with her daughter, Billie Lourd.

Carrie Fisher felt intense feelings about Harrison Ford while they were engaged

Fisher and Ford’s relationship began Star Wars: Episode IV- A New Hope. When they met, Fisher was 19-years-old and fresh from her first film career. Ford was 14 years older than her and also had a wife and two children at home. However, the last two actors began to see each other outside of work, with no team or team knowledge.

“I wasn’t raised like that,” Fisher said Today about the matter. “But once you’re in your position – here’s what I found out – everything is allowed.”

Fisher often praised Lourd in her books. In 2008, the author released Alcohol and she shared how proud she was of her daughter.

“To my DNA jackpot – my daughter, Billie,” she wrote. “To all you are and everything you will be. I want to be like you when I grow up. ”

When Fisher released The Goddess of the Princess, she continued to recognize Lourd at the beginning of the book.

“For Billie – for turning out better than I could have deserved or imagined,” Fisher wrote. “But get a housewife. Vegas will always be there. ”
