Simon Pegg told Carrie Fisher he kissed her poster every night.He told the 'Star Wars' actress about his "crush" on her, admitting he would kiss a poster featuring her as Princess Leia before he went to bed each evening.He told The Sun newspaper: "Princess Leia was my first crush and I really remember those feelings of longing for her."Speaking to Carrie years later and telling her about it, she asked me if I felt better for telling her I kissed her picture every night before I went to bed every night, and I said yes, I did."I think she thought it was kind of strange."Carrie - along with Harrison Ford (Han Solo) and Mark Hamill (Luke Skywalker) - is rumoured to be returning for the new 'Star Wars' film due out in 2015.Despite sharing director J J Abrams with 'Star Trek Into Darkness' - in which Simon stars as engineer Montgomery 'Scotty' Scott - the actor won't be asking for a part alongside his crush.He said: "I would never go up to him and ask him, because if he wants me he'll ask me, and if he doesn't, he won't. I won't be upset about that."I will be thrilled to watch a new 'Star Wars' film, but in a way I would prefer not to be in it, then I can watch it as a fan and not have it spoiled by me."And perhaps J J wants to keep the two universes separate - I totally get that. It, probably rules me out."
