HARRISON FORD: UNDERCOVER NICE GUY

This is the type of Good Samaritan item that publicists LOVE to plant about their clients, but in this case it isn’t coming from a publicist so it actually happened! Last year,  avid pilot Harrison Ford heard at the hangar (where he parks his plane in Santa Monica) that one of the ground crew was diagnosed with a terminal disease. Harrison arranged for the guy and his family to visit Hawaii, picking up the tab for the a week long vacation. And when the worker passed, Ford paid for the burial and celebration of life. A source reveals Harrison insisted on keeping his generosity anonymous, but we couldn’t help but share.

HARRISON FORD TURNS BACK TIME

The Hollywood Reporter calmly announced that 80 year old Harrison Ford has been “de-aged” in his upcoming Indiana Jones sequel and will appear as a 40 year old fighting Nazis in the 1940’s, in the beginning of the film! Director James Mangold created the illusion using old footage as well as the actor’s original jacket. Even Ford is amazed by the result- he says “It’s spooky, but it works.” As this de-aging technology evolves, (and it WILL) we wonder how it will affect Hollywood in the future. Will popular movie actors like Tom Cruise or Chris Hemsworth have MUCH longer careers if they continue to look young? Will sexy female stars have a later expiration date?

HARRISON FORD AND ANTONIO BANDERAS REALLY LIKE EACH OTHER

Nice to see Antonio Banderas and Harrison Ford greeting each other with a big hug on the Italian set of Indiana Jones 5 when Antonio arrived for his first day of shooting. The film had a big setback when Ford injured his shoulder in June and he had to take a few months off. Back at work, he was happy to see Antonio, with whom he costarred in that ultra-macho movie Expendables 3 a few years ago. (Expendables 3 starred chest-thumpers Sylvester Stallone, Arnold Schwarzenegger, and Jason Statham, plus almost every other tough guy in Hollywood.) The highly secretive plot for this new Indiana Jones story has the daredevil archeologist supposedly time traveling and fighting nazis as well as visiting the 1960’s during the space race.

CALISTA FLOCKHART HAS NO FEAR OF FLYING WITH HARRISON FORD

Pilot Harrison Ford has had more than his share of flight problems – close calls, near-misses, and crash landings, but his wife Calista Flockhart still has total faith in his flying. Ford, 78, often flies himself and his wife, plus their dogs, back and forth to their Wyoming home. He flew her relatives in for the holidays, and flew Calista’s son Liam to college in Massachusetts. He’s also gearing up to start filming Indiana Jones 5, reprising his role as the daredevil archeologist, and will certainly fly himself to and from the set. Disney optimistically set a July 2022 release date for the film.

HARRISON FORD LOVES TO FLY AND IGNORES HIS OWN CARBON FOOTPRINT

It’s amazing that Harrison Ford is an activist and advocate for reducing carbon footprints, yet he continues to fly his own private planes. Ford lectures about climate change, but his own carbon footprint is considerable since he flies so often. (Private planes produce MUCH more carbon per passenger than commercial flights.) Certainly his wife Calista Flockhart will be somewhat relieved if Ford, 78, ever gives up flying. He’s had a number of close calls and a few years ago was forced to crash land his vintage plane on a golf course. Ford just flew back from Amherst College where he picked up his son Liam, 19, for Thanksgiving break.

HARRISON FORD: NO TIME FOR GUESSING GAMES

Harrison Ford was walking briskly down the street in New York with a couple of friends when a group of people on the sidewalk did a double-take and stopped dead in their tracks. “I KNOW him!” – someone gasped, “Who’s that guy in the black t-shirt? He’s a famous actor!” Overhearing their conversation, Ford turned around and yelled back over his shoulder “It’s Kevin Costner!

CALISTA FLOCKHART: IS THAT YOUR GRANDFATHER?

Supergirl star Calista Flockhart and her grandfather are touring Spain this week. Oops! Upon closer inspection that older gentleman appears to be Calista’s husband Harrison Ford! It’s amazing what a beard can do to ruin a perfectly good looking man’s looks. And a white bead is the worst of all! On the bright side, Harrison probably won’t be recognized by anyone – and women are not likely to give him the eye. But it is a shame…

HARRISON FORD IS FOCUSED ON GIVING CALISTA WHAT SHE WANTS

AG_095490_028harris

Star Wars hero Harrison Ford isn’t too big a star to pick out Christmas gifts for his wife Calista Flockhart himself. Most actors would send an assistant to do their shopping, but Harrison braved the Christmas crowds today to pick out some loungewear for Calista at a shop called Roberta Roller Rabbit at the Brentwood Country Mart. The store specializes in apparel and home goods made from hand printed India cotton. He made his selection and left as quickly as possible.

OTHER MEN SHOULD TAKE A HINT FROM HARRISON FORD

144850PCN_Ford07(1)cut

Now HERE’S a nice looking man! Harrison Ford, 73, is walking down the street in Beverly Hills and he looks better than most men HALF his age – or less. No baseball cap, no gigantic t-shirt, no cargo shorts, and NO flip flops! Without even trying, he’s probably Best Dressed man of the month! We’re guessing Calista Flockhart has a lot to do with his appearance. Harrison’s Star Wars movie is debuting with considerable fanfare, next month.

HARRISON FORD AND CALISTA TAKE TURNS CHRISTMAS SHOPPING AT BARNEYS

Harrison Ford went shopping at Barneys today – just a few days after his wife Calista Flockhart was seen shopping there on her own. We think they are both getting gifts from their favorite store. Calista probably picked out gifts for Harrison while she was there, and took a few notes on stuff SHE would like to have. With her hints, he’s more likely to buy her something she really wants.
