magazine that she had an enjoyable and “intense” affair with the star during the filming of the sci-fi blockbuster.Fisher was 19 at the time, while Ford was 33 and the Princess Leia actress said the affair went on for three months.But that is the length of the film, being screened this week, of the stage show based on her autobiography, Wishful Drinking.The daughter of film star Debbie Reynolds and singer Eddie Fisher, Carrie was under the spotlight from the moment she was born – the attention only intensifying when Fisher left Reynolds for Elizabeth Taylor in what was the Brad-Jennifer-Angelina love triangle of the 1950s.The news has caused people to ask, who is Carrie Fisher dating now?

Fisher dated Paul Simon of Simon & Garfunkel, from 1977 until 1980.They had all previously been good friends – Debbie was Elizabeth’s matron-of-honour at her wedding to film producer Mike Todd, and Fisherwas Todd’s best man.When Todd died in a plane crash in 1958, Debbie sent her husband to console Elizabeth – and he never came back.
