Carrie Fisher’s Revelation Of Her Affair With Harrison Ford Isn’t The Only Regret From Her Star Wars Legacy

Carrie Fisher didn’t only regret her affair with co-star Harrison Ford, but she also regretted her role in the Star Wars films.

Melissa Mathison’s Will Went Missing Following Her Passing

Harrison Ford and Melissa Mathison agreed on a settlement back in 2004. They went their own ways after 21 years of marriage. Mathison walked away with $85 million from the divorce. At the time, it was the most expensive divorce in Hollywood history.

Sadly, the former E.T. screenwriter passed away at the age of 65 back in November of 2015. Mathison still had a massive chunk of that net worth, valued to be at $22 million. However, at the time, the will left more questions than answers given that it went missing, leaving her massive fortune on the line.

TMZ wrote back in 2015, “The court docs show Melissa is worth $22 million. Her fortune is all in a trust, but the document was not included in the legal papers so we don’t know who’s supposed to get it. She had 2 kids so it’s a good assumption they’ll get at least part of it. So now the question … what happens if the original will is never found? In California, as long as no one’s fighting over her estate, a copy will do just fine.”

Ford also said in the past that he instantly fell in love with Flockhart.
