Calista Flockhart has not seen Star Wars, Harrison Ford is okay with that

Some people, on meeting a new romantic interest, Google them, check their Facebook page, and generally mildly stalk them online. Others, like Calista Flockhart, don’t. Which is fine when you’re dating Harrison Ford. If he does something really scandalous you’ll see it on the supermarket checkout tabloids. Still, I think she might have watched Star Wars at least once, if for no other reason than Harrison was so hot then.

Ford, 66, became a superstar as space action hero Han Solo in the original George Lucas trilogy, which became a $4.3 billion movie franchise.

The couple, who became engaged on 1 April 2007, have been dating since 2002. And Flockhart, who was still a child at the time the original film debuted in 1977, blames her rural upbringing for never seeing the sci-fi franchise that made her fiance a cult hero.

The 44-year-old actress says, “I was never starstruck (by him). I have not seen Star Wars, isn’t that amazing… I’m sure it is (good). It’s weird that I haven’t seen it. We lived in a small town and the movie theatre was an hour away. And I was 12 – the perfect age to see it.”

PR Inside

Calista makes no mention of the newer Star Wars projects, which don’t star Harrison Ford. Why would she? Many fans are trying to erase the recent cartoon movies from their minds.

Calista and Harrison are rumored to have acquired a marriage license and are thought to be getting married any day now. Clearly not being a fan of Star Wars isn’t a deal breaker for its leading man, which is ironic really, because it would be for some hard core fanatics.

Harrison Ford and Calista Flockhart are shown at the “6th Annual ‘Living Legends of Aviation Awards’ honoring Harrison Ford held at the Beverly Hilton Hotel” on 1/22/09. Credit: WENN

    Somehow I doubt that after 7 years, he’s too shaken by the fact that she hasn’t seen some of his movies. I doubt he sat through “Ally McBeal”.

  2. Anna says:

    This gives me just one more reason to hate her. She’s with Han friggin’ Solo for crying out loud! I don’t know what he sees in that anorexic moron.

  3. BluePlanet says:

    Calista – you ARE living on planet earth are you not?

  4. pixiegirl says:

    I guess she never had a chance to see it beyond the age of 12?

  5. Dorothy says:

    I don’t believe this for a second! I totally agree with Anna what does he see in her????

  6. HEB says:

    She has a young son, she’ll see Star Wars eventually.

  7. Codzilla says:

    I just don’t understand how someone could have lived 44 years in this day and age without seeing Star Wars at SOME point. It just seems statistically impossible.

  8. lily says:

    Star Wars made Harrison Ford a movie star…so if you’re with the one you love, why not see it? strange indeed.

  10. Mimi says:

    not an auspicious sign. Recall that McCartney’s recent ex made it clear she’d never heard the Beatles…

  11. brit says:

    wtf? thats odd.

  12. Drea says:

    I don’t think it’s that weird…I’m 23 and I’ve never seen Star Wars…some people just aren’t into those type of movies.

  13. Blah Girls! says:

    oh, it’s def possible not to have seen star wars yet!

  14. Lina says:

    I agree Drea I’m not into those types of movies either and I’m 22. I’ve seen star wars 1-3 only because I keep trying to catch UFC on Spike but they keep showing those star wars movies, and since there usually isn’t anything on I watch them. They’re alright but I don’t have an incentive to go out and rent star wars 4-6.

  15. orion70 says:

    Drea and Lina, part of the point here is that she was a kid in the 70’s and the Star Wars movies were big then for sure. With all due respect, it’s sort of a “had to be there” kind of thing. The latter incarnations are good enough in their own right, but they are nothing like the original movies, in their time.

  16. Codzilla says:

    orion: You said it much better than I did, thank you.

  17. Dirty Martini says:

    Simply put, she is a stick twig figure without a soul. She’s in love with the man and never saw Star Wars???!!?!


    And I never fantasized about Harrison Ford when having sex with my 3rd husband either.

  18. I must obtain the new star wars theme on my Tom Tom GPS. Seems like It’s terrific!
