NEW ORLEANS (WVUE) -

Actress Carrie Fisher reveals the reason she and "Star Wars" co-star Harrison Ford's on-screen romance was "so intense."

Fisher told People Magazine she and Ford had an affair while filming the now iconic 1977 blockbuster. Fisher was 19 and Ford was 33 and married with two kids at the time. 

"It was Han and Leia during the week and Carrie and Harrison during the weekend." 

Fisher, 60, tells all in an upcoming book titled "The Princess Diarist." The new book is based on what happened behind the scenes including the first time she and Ford spent their first night together. 

The actress says the romance ended when the film did. Fisher also confirmed that she gave Ford a heads-up about the book and he received a draft. 

West for Trump

Fans walked out of a Kanye West concert in San Jose Thursday after he ranted his political views on stage. 

"I told y'all I didn't vote, right? But I didn't tell you. I guess I told you. If I would have voted I would have voted for Donald Trump," said West.

One concert-goer caught the moment on camera from afar. While the majority of the crowd boos, there were a few hand claps in support of President-elect Trump. 

The rapper also sparked controversy by shouting "Build the wall" and saying he's running for president in 2020. 

Toward the end of his show, he calls for black people to stop focusing on racism. 

"Specifically black people, stop focusing on racism." "This world is racist, OK? Let's stop being distracted to focus on that as much. It's a f***ing fact. We are in a racist country." 

After social media caught wind of Ye's support for Trump, frustrating tweets flooded Twitter. 

One Twitter user seems to be on board with his decision.
