Normally I wouldn’t post about Harrison’s personal relationships but this was 40 years ago and its more about his response to her telling him it was in the book.

CARRIE FISHER as Princess Leia HARRISON FORD as Han Solo STAR WARS EPISODE V – THE EMPIRE STRIKES BACK US 1980

 

PEOPLE – One might expect Harrison Ford to have had a few choice words for Carrie Fisher when she gave him a friendly heads-up about a book she was writing that would publicly reveal their 1976 affair.

 

Instead, the dry-witted actor uttered just one.

 

“He went, ‘Lawyer!’ ” Fisher tells PEOPLE.

 

The actress-author, 60, took his reaction as playful, if resigned, and assured her Star Wars costar she’d send him an early copy and said she was open to any notes.

 

Indeed, Fisher, who was just 19 at the time of their whirlwind romance during the original Star Wars shoot, sent Ford an early manuscript for The Princess Diarist, exclusively excerpted in this week’s issue of PEOPLE.

 

“I called him and said, ‘Where are you? I’m sending it to you,’ ” she recalls. “I don’t want to embarrass anyone and he’s very private. I said, ‘I know you’re not going to be excited but …’ ”

 

No notes from Ford were forthcoming. (And he did not respond to PEOPLE’s request for comment.)




PAGE SIX – Eight prominent Californians will be added to the state Hall of Fame to honor their contributions to art, science, literature and sports, the governor’s office announced Wednesday.

 

This year’s list includes Harrison Ford, author Isabel Allende, baseball superstar Tony Gwynn, artist Corita Kent, former U.S. Secretary of Defense William J. Perry, journalist Maria Shriver, music entrepreneur Russ Solomon and actor and activist George Takei.

 

Gov. Jerry Brown and first lady Anne Gust Brown will induct the honorees at a Nov. 30 ceremony at the California Museum in Sacramento, where an exhibit featuring items loaned by the inductees will open Dec. 1.

 

The exhibit will include Allende’s Presidential Medal of Freedom for Literature awarded by President Barack Obama in 2014; Ford’s Indiana Jones costume from “Raiders of the Lost Ark;” and Takei’s Hikaru Sulu costume from “Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home.”

 

“I am a proud second-generation Californian, humbled to be honored by a state singular in its beauty, diversity and dynamism,” Takei said.

 

The California Hall of Fame was established in 2006 by the California Museum, former Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger and Shriver, then his wife. There are now 96 inductees.

THE HOLLYWOOD REPORTER – “He gave Sully my phone number, and that’s how it all started,” producer Frank Marshall says.

 

Harrison Ford had a role in Sully — behind the scenes, that it.

 

Sully producer Frank Marshall revealed during The Hollywood Reporter’s Producer Roundtable that Ford was responsible for getting the story of the Hero of the Hudson, Captain Chesley Sullenberger, to the big screen.

 

“[Ford] was at a dinner at the White House, an aviation dinner, and there were all of these aviation heroes, and one of them was Sully,” Marshall said. “This was six or seven years ago.”

 

The retired airline captain apparently picked Ford’s brain about his recently written memoir, 2009’s Highest Duty: My Search for What Really Matters, when he asked if it could be a movie. Harrison told him to give his friend Marshall — with whom he worked on the Indiana Jones films -— a call.

 

“He gave Sully my phone number, and that’s how it all started,” Marshall recalled. “I went to the publisher in Beverly Hills, and there’s Sully, and I’m awed by this man, and he trusted Harrison and he trusted me, and he said, ‘OK, I’m going to give you the rights.'”

 

When asked if Ford wanted to star in the film, himself, Marshall said, “I don’t think so. I asked him, of course. But no. I think Harrison wanted to just give us the gift of the story.”




SCV NEWS – Gov. Edmund G. Brown Jr. and First Lady Anne Gust Brown, along with the California Museum, announced the 10th class of inductees to the California Hall of Fame on Monday.

COMINGSOON.NETHarrison Ford and Ryan Gosling want you to win a trip to the Blade Runner 2 set

 

Alcon Entertainment’s Blade Runner sequel is now filming in Budapest and there’s a chance that you could experience it firsthand. Ryan Gosling is the host of a new Omaze video that features both he and Harrison Ford presenting a special message from the Blade Runner 2 set. As has been done in the past on productions like Star Wars: The Force Awakens and Star Trek Beyond, Omaze has a new campaign designed to raise money for a trio of important organizations: The Enough Project, Imerman Angels and The Hummingbirds Foundation. In today’s video, Gosling focuses on The Enough Project but, if past Omaze campaigns are any indication, we’re likely to see additional videos focused on the other two.
