Harrison Ford on his love for Calista Flockhart, plans green wedding

Hello! Magazine has a new interview with Harrison Ford, 67, and he comes across as very open and honest and like a great guy. I don’t remember the last time I saw an interview with Ford, so I watched a couple on YouTube, and he does seem like a normal, nice guy who also happens to be a movie star.

In Hello!, Ford talks about the pitfalls of fame and enthuses about his love of flying and riding motorcycles. The interviewer from Hello! points out that Ford is an environmental activist and that he drives a Prius. When asked if he’s planning a green wedding to fiance Calista Flockhart, he basically answers “of course.” Ford doesn’t say much about his commitment to environmental causes, but Hello! points out that he’s doing promotional work for the Team Earth project, which encourages people to live a more sustainable lifestyle. In that same interview, Ford admits to owning more motorcycles that he can count on both hands and Hello! mentions that Ford, a pilot, has five airplanes and a helicopter and owns three residences. Now how is owning six aircraft and three homes compatible with being conscious of your environmental impact? I’ll give the guy a break, though, as he’s donated a lot of money and time to environmental causes over the years.

Ford also speaks candidly about his love for fiance Calista, and you can tell that she means a lot to him. There’s no word as to when they plan to get married.

When it comes to work travel [Ford] often opts to take either a helicopter or an airplane which he pilots himself…

Every year, he divides his time between his Manhattan loft, his ranch in Wyoming and his home in Montecito…

On yearning for privacy
Ford: “It’s horrible to live with people looking at your nonstop. I’ll never get used to it. My fantasy would be to be invisible.”

On his love of flying
Ford: “I’m not just an actor. I’m also a pilot. I really enjoy the mix of freedom and responsibility that flying requires. I’m not seeking out the adrenaline as much as the pleasure of calculating risk and knowing where the dangers are.”

On his love for Calista
Ford: “I was 60 when I fell in love with Calista. What surprised me most was that I was still capable of establishing a long-lasting relationship, making a serious commitment. With my children, in my private life or my work, I try to learn from my mistakes and evolve.”

On a green wedding
Ford: “I haven’t thought about ‘greening my wedding.’ My wedding was always going to be green.”

[From Hello! Magazine, print edition, October 5, 2009]

Ford confirmed earlier this month that a fifth Indiana Jones movie is in the works. We heard earlier this summer that Ford’s co-star Shia Labeouf said that filming had already begun on the fifth movie. Fox News has a new amusing editorial that asks if some action heroes are just too old to be convincing. The youngest guy they mention is Nicholas Cage, 45, and the oldest is Clint Eastwood, 79. Of Ford, 67, they say “Shia LaBeouf will be back [in Indiana Jones 5] to do more of the heavy lifting, but it will still be hard to watch Ford huff and puff his way alongside his much younger co-star.” Ford doesn’t see that as a problem, though, and told Hello! that he’s still around because “I’m not a trend, so you can’t replace me just like that.”

    Uh, so he has motocycles, runs around in planes and helicopters, yet speaks on environmental issues and wants a green wedding?! Well okay.

    I love all these pompous celebs who try to tell all of us how we shou;ld live, but do the exact opposite themselves. Idiots!

  2. maddie says:

    Why didn’t you know FireStarter that having boatloads of $money$ makes them smarter than us peons, who struggle every day!

  3. HEB says:

    How exactly does one make their wedding “green”? Callista will wear a burlap wedding dress? They’re going to have the reception in a garden that doesn’t use pesticides? Windmills will generate the electricity for the mood lighting?

  4. Firestarter says:

    @Maddie- LOL! You are right about that!

  5. Ash says:

    Oh Harrison, you’ll always be Indiana in my book.

    As for the wedding… he’ll arrive on his motorcycle. But it’s totally green you guys…come on..?? wait what????

  6. princess pea says:

    Oh what, and you all walk everywhere? Emissions-wise, a motorcycle is better than a car.

    But don’t listen to me. I freely admit that Indy lives in a blind spot for me. He can do no wrong. Lalalalala I can’t hear you, Han Solo is my boyfriend.

  7. Ash says:

    I never claimed to be green, ever. I was poking fun of him because he says he is.

  8. Praise St. Angie! says:

    “Lalalalala I can’t hear you, Han Solo is my boyfriend.”

    hahahahaha! that made me laugh so hard!

    Calista’s face scares me…

  10. Alarmjaguar says:

    Wait, they aren’t married…

  11. RobN says:

    I love him but the hypocrisy is amazing. Those airplanes leave a bigger carbon footprint in an hour of flight time than my car does in a month. Enjoy them if you want, but don’t turn around and try to tell me about your Prius.

  12. Lenore says:

    Agreed with other comments here – not much makes me angrier than super-rich celebrities jetting all over the damn planet, lecturing the rest of us on how we’re ruining it because we don’t have hybrids yet. I love Harrison Ford but honestly, how DARE he. You want to show your green commitment? Get a bicycle and pedal. Until you stop contributing to pollution with entirely pointless, avoidable hobbying, fuck you.

    In fact, to Hollywood, on behalf of everyone who has to work 9 to 5 in a job they hate for money that just barely covers their mortgage (if that), if you want to pay to come renovate our houses to make them green, be my guest, but until then, fuck you all.

  13. 4Real says:

    Why even have a wedding after all this time? If it’s a green wedding what’s her wedding dress going to be like, a bahia grass frock? Are they going to make all of the guests walk or ride bikes?

  14. Mrs. Harrison Ford says:

    Sorry, ladies, but he’s mine. All mine.

  15. Nixe says:

    Sorry to say, he has not aged well. And a fifth Indy movie? Please, say it ain’t so, it’s time to put that puppy to bed.

  16. Obeng Kennedy says:

    Hello,am happy for you and i pray that the Lord sees you through.

  17. Woodworking says:

    Everyone ought to in no way try to accomplish something about woodworking not having knowing tips on how to achieve this correctly. Build certain that you request plenty of questions when you might be inside course to ensure that you’re certain you are obvious on the methods and methods.
