Why Harrison Ford “Was Not Surprised” When He Fell for His Wife Calista Flockhart in “1923”

Harrison Ford is a Hollywood mainstay due to his iconic part in the Star Wars franchise and his work on television dramas such as 1923 on Paramount+ and Shrinking on Apple TV+. While he may be a well-known face on camera, he conceals one aspect of his life on purpose. His relationship with actress Calista Flockhart spans over two decades, and their paths intersected at the most unexpected moment.

Harrison and Calista met for the first time at the 2002 Golden Globes, where she was nominated for her part in Ally McBeal. As the Cecil B. DeMille Award recipient, he also had a great night at the ceremony. The Indiana Jones actor was amid a divorce from his second wife, Melissa Mathison, at the time (which was later finalized in 2004).

In addition to the 22-year age difference between Harrison and Calista (he was 60 and she was 38), Harrison was also the father of four children: Ben and Willard with his first wife Mary Marquardt, and Malcolm and Georgia with Melissa. In January 2001, Calista had adopted her young son Liam barely a year earlier. Sparks quickly began to fly when the two met at the significant Hollywood event.

In June 2003, he told People, “I’m in love.” “Romantic love is one of the most thrilling and satisfying kind of love, and I believe you may experience it at any age. I was not astonished that I could fall in love, nor that I did.”

Eventually, the couple was sighted together at casual motorbike rides and red-carpet events. After seven years of dating, The Mosquito Coast actor proposed to Calista on Valentine’s Day, 2009, altering their relationship. Approximately at this time, Harrison adopted Liam as his kid. He later explained that Liam was always a part of their relationship.

“I believe I met Liam and Calista when he was between six and eight months old,” he told Parade in January 2010. “Since… we have been inseparable. I did not anticipate it at all. The unexpected portion was indeed accurate. And the happiness portion is also accurate.”

Liam attended Harrison and Calista’s intimate wedding in Santa Fe, New Mexico, in June 2010. While they continued to enjoy good times together, they also stood by each other during difficult times. In 2015, Harrison, an avid pilot, crashed his plane over a Los Angeles golf course. Calista hurried to her husband’s side and remained until he recovered.

Later, the Supergirl star revealed to People how terrible the situation was for her family. She told the magazine, “He loves it, so I love it, and I support him 100 percent.” “It’s a reminder that life may change on a dime and that we must embrace every moment because we never know what the future holds.”

However, the long-term pair does not only address the difficulties they have faced throughout their partnership. In 2015, during an appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live!, Calista joked about Harrison’s inadequate texting skills. As for spending time with Liam, they relied on one another after August 2020, when they dropped him off at college.

Above all, he remains as in love with his wife as when they first met twenty years ago. As it turns out, he has a suggestion for spicing up their marriage: working on a project.

“We’d love to discover a project we could collaborate on,” he told Fox News in January. “She’s only returning to the workforce after devoting the last twenty years to raising our kid, Liam… She is excited to return to work. I’m hoping that we can find a shared activity.”
