Mark Hamill was too busy being beautiful to notice his Star Wars co-stars’ affair

Real life is often boring and/or awful, so mankind was presented with a wonderful gift a few weeks ago when Carrie Fisher revealed that she and Harrison Ford had an affair while filming Star Wars in the ’70s. It was the sort of story that everyone can enjoy, whether you’re a fan of Star Wars, extramarital affairs, or gossip about which iconic movie stars are bad in bed, but Fisher later suggested that Ford was probably mad at her for exposing their old secrets. That addendum seemed like it would be the end of the saga, but now Entertainment Tonight has caught up with Mark Hamill to see if he has any thoughts on this whole affair thing.

Unfortunately for anyone hoping for more Hollywood drama, though, it turns out that Hamill had no idea it was happening at the time. He was too busy being young and beautiful to pay attention to anyone but himself, telling ET that he was “so self-involved at that point” that they could’ve done it right in front of him and he wouldn’t have noticed. He also notes that he was single and had his “own agenda” in those days, which presumably means that he was off having plenty of sex without Carrie Fisher or Harrison Ford.


Either way, he’ll always have the great moment at the end of this clip:
