It's a little-known fact, but I wanted Han Solo to die at the end of Star Wars: Episode VI - Return of the Jedi (1983). I thought it would give more weight and resonance. But George Lucas wasn't sympathetic. He didn't want me killed by those teddy bear guys.
I'll make you a deal. I'll try to keep making films that put people in your theatre seats and you try to keep their shoes from sticking to the floor.
I'm like a fireman. When I go out on a call, I want to put out a big fire, I don't want to put out a fire in a dumpster.
I used to shake my head, as in "No, I just look like him." But that's not fair. So I said to those little old ladies at Trenton Airport, "Yes, I am Harrison Ford." And they still didn't believe it was me.

However, by the mid of the ’70s, their relationship had run into trouble and they decided to separate in 1977. Their divorce was finalized in 1979.

Apparently, Melissa was tired of his bad-boy bachelor’s behavior. After briefly celebrating his newly single life with visits to strip clubs and partying with a bevy of beauties, he asked for one more chance from Melissa, which despite her generosity didn’t amount to much as they finalized the divorce in 2004.
Ford met actress and singer Minnie Driver at Timothy White’s art show at a Los Angeles gallery in November 2001 and started dating. They split in early 2002.
After separating from Melissa, Harrison found love in actress Calista Flockhart. They first met at the Golden Globe Awards in January 2002. At the event, Calista intentionally spilled her drink on Ford so that she could get some more time with him.
That move worked wonderfully for her as after dating for around 7 years, they got engaged in 2009 on Valentine’s Day eve. They got married in June 2010 at a lavish ceremony at New Mexico Governor’s mansion in Santa Fe.
In 2001, they adopted a son Liam Flockhart.
