Star Wars

actress Carrie Fisher has denied criticising the sexual skills of her former co-star and secret squeeze Harrison Ford.

"Any reports claiming I said Harrison was bad in bed are utterly false. People should perhaps read the book," she told People magazine.

"Perhaps people should read the book before they write their stories."

Her comments came after reports about her forthcoming memoir, The Princess Diarist, in which she confirmed their long-rumoured affair.

While the 60-year-old did write about her "intense" three-month affair with Ford in 1976, she said she intentionally left out intimate details of the tryst.

She also tweeted: "I would never talk about how someone was in any furniture - chair, bed, coffee table or otherwise."

Fisher was 19 at the time of the affair - 14 years younger than father-of-two Ford, who was then 33 and married to Mary Marquardt. They divorced 1979.

In an excerpt from her memoir, Fisher said she and Ford spent their first night together following a birthday party for Star Wars director George Lucas.

She reportedly wrote: "I looked over at Harrison. A hero's face - a few strands of hair fell over his noble, slightly furrowed brow.

"How could you ask such a shining specimen of a man to be satisfied with the likes of me? I was so inexperienced, but I trusted something about him. He was kind."

Fisher and Ford reunited on screen last year in Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens, playing Princess Leia and Han Solo respectively.
