In an interview with Today on November 21, she described the fling that they had while filming Star Wars: Episode IV — A New Hope in 1976 as a "three-month one-night stand."

"I was in infatuation, probably. Infatuation. Love is more mature," she later told Ellen DeGeneres when asked if it was love or just sex.

Carrie was 19 at the time, while Ford, who was then 33, was a married father of two. He and his then-wife, Mary Marquadt, divorced in 1979.
