Playing Lupita Nyong'o Spills She Has a Scene With Harrison Ford in 'Star Wars: The Force Awakens'

Despite the secrecy surrounding Star Wars: The Force Awakens, ET was able to get a juicy bit of information out of Oscar winner Lupita Nyong'o.

In the film, Lupita plays Maz Kanata, a bar owner with a mysterious past. That was all the deets the 32-year-old actress was planning on giving out until she accidentally revealed that she actually filmed a scene with none other than Harrison Ford! That's right. Han Solo himself! (We'll give you a second to process that.) The spill happened while she was describing how playing a CGI character affected her performance.

"Luckily, because I had been a part of the principal photography, I had the understanding of the spaces that I was in," Lupita recalled. "And then you just have to project Harrison and ... Oh dear! I said something."

After the slip-up, the actress immediately became more reticent about anything having to do with the movie.

"This is the trouble with these interviews," Lupita said with a smile. "I'm not saying anything else."
