Harrison Ford was blessed to have been born to two parents who loved him and supported him throughout his life. His mother, Dorothy Ford, was a radio actress, and his father, Christopher Ford, was an actor turned advertising executive. The young actor regularly appeared with his mother in film premiers until she passed away in 2004 at age 87.
It has been rumored that she was quite affectionate and responsible for the actor’s softer side, while his dad was an extremely hard worker who taught him various business skills. The combination of their influences likely significantly shaped Harrison Ford into the person and actor he is today.
You’d think that someone like Harrison Ford was always a hero, but this is far from the truth. When asked about his childhood, Ford claimed that he was picked on at school. When asked why he thought that happened, the actor responded: "I was kind of short and geeky, I guess.” Can you imagine Ford being geeky? He's gotten famous for being anything but a nerd, so the joke is actually on those who bullied him.
Despite this, Ford refused to let the bullying define him and instead used it as motivation to succeed. He worked hard to develop his talent and ultimately went on to become one of the most famous actors in the world.
Sharing Sets With the Lord of the Rings Cast
Thanks to his long career as an actor, Ford has appeared in quite a few films over the years. Throughout his acting years, the actor has appeared in films with four actors from the legendary Lord of the Rings cast. Harrison Ford was in the same films as John Rhys-Davies (Gimli), Viggo Mortensen (Aragorn), Sean Bean (Boromir), and even Miranda Otto (Éowyn). The movies were Raiders of the Lost Ark, Patriot Games, and What Lies Beneath, respectively.
It's no surprise that these actors have become such icons in the film industry, given their incredible talent and dedication to their craft. For Harrison Ford, the chance to work with such legendary performers has undoubtedly been one of the highlights of his impressive career.
Ford has a total of five children from his three marriages. His first marriage to Mary Marquardt bore him two sons. The first is Benjamin Ford, a chef-restaurateur who co-owns Ford's Filling Station, a gastropub with two locations. The second, Willard Ford, is the owner of Strong Sports Gym, Kim Sing Theater, and the Ludwig Clothing Company.
We wonder if he used Daddy's money in order to acquire these three businesses. We bet he did, but we can't blame him, we'd probably do the same. Regardless of how they got started, they have both carved out successful careers in their own right and have undoubtedly made their father proud.
His second marriage resulted in two more children, who both ended up becoming actors. The first is Malcolm Ford, and the second is Georgia Ford. Since then, the famous actor remarried a third time. When he met Flockhart, it was just after she adopted a child. Ford adopted her child, making himself the proud father of five.
Ford currently lives with his third wife and Liam in Jackson Hole, Wyoming. They enjoy spending time outdoors and enjoying the natural beauty of the area, and despite his busy career and high profile, it's clear that family is always a top priority for this legendary actor.
