Carrie Fisher has revealed why her character Princess Leia and Harrison Ford’s Han Solo were no longer a couple in Star Wars: The Force Awakens.

Fisher explained the reasons why in a comedic manner during a Q&A at the Saskatoon Comic & Entertainer Expo:

“He smuggled way too much, and girls, I know you don’t want your husband smuggling, do you? [And] hanging out with the hairy guy too often. I think there are a lot of problems with that. He wouldn’t take me on that hyperspace thing enough. [That’s a] euphemism.” she said, according to the Expo’s Facebook page.

“He smuggled way too much. [And] hanging out with the hairy guy too often.”

Han and Leia were quite the couple in the original Star Wars films.

Han and Leia getting romantic in 1980’s The Empire Strikes Back.

Fisher is set to return as Leia in Star Wars 8 and recently, Adam Driver, who plays their son Kylo Ren in the new films, called the upcoming episode “dark” in tone:

“It’s great. It’s similar to how The Empire Strikes Back has a different tone. For that people always go, ‘Oooh, it’s dark.’ But I don’t know that it necessarily is. It’s just different in tone in a way that I think is great and necessary but also very clear.” he told Collider.

And we can see Star Wars: Episode VIII, helmed by Rian Johnson, when it arrives in theaters on December 15, 2017.
