A Dark Day For The Galaxy

Carrie Fisher, my all-time favorite actress (and the boyhood crush of every red-blooded American male my age) has passed away. She was only 60 years old.

Carrie Fisher, the actress best known as Star Wars‘ Princess Leia Organa, has died after suffering a heart attack. She was 60.

Family spokesman Simon Halls released a statement to PEOPLE on behalf of Fisher’s daughter, Billie Lourd:

“It is with a very deep sadness that Billie Lourd confirms that her beloved mother Carrie Fisher passed away at 8:55 this morning,” reads the statement.

Ironically, I heard the news as I walked in the front door after taking Erik and Kevin to see Rogue One. Fisher was the one Hollywood actress who could do no wrong in my eyes. I didn’t care about her drug abuse, I didn’t care about her politics, I loved her unconditionally. She was always Princess Leia to me, and barring that, at least the Mystery Woman from The Blues Brothers.

Fisher was the most beautiful actress I ever laid eyes on, and I was happy to see her again in Star Wars: The Force Awakens. I will miss her terribly.

Honestly, I felt as if lost a family member. I guess that makes me insane, but that’s how I feel.

To respect Carrie’s passing, there will be no more posts today. Rest in peace, Princess.

UPDATE: Carrie’s mother, Debbie Reynolds, died today after suffering a massive stroke. God bless and keep them both.

An Affair To Remember

Carrie Fisher And Harrison Ford Kissing

Harrison Ford is without question my favorite actor of all time. After reading this story, however, he will be my new god, and I will build many churches in his honor.

Carrie Fisher is going public with a secret she has guarded closely for 40 years: When she was 19, she and Harrison Ford, then a 33-year-old married father of two, had a whirlwind three-month affair while filming the original Star Wars in 1976.

“It was so intense,” the actress-author, 60, tells PEOPLE exclusively of the real-life romance die-hard fans of the franchise have wished for since Han Solo and Princess Leia captured hearts on-screen. “It was Han and Leia during the week, and Carrie and Harrison during the weekend,” she says.

Harrison Ford was banging Carrie Fisher in her prime. God damn, that’s a good pull!

I stand corrected. It’s a great pull!
