Happy Birthday to Harrison Ford who turned 69 this wednesday! Harrison is a very private citizen when he's not galloping across the west fighting aliens. He loves the time spent alone with his family.
The famously private actor - who married 46-year-old actress Calista Flockhart last June after eight years together - escapes the pressures of fame by going on boating holidays in Europe with the former 'Ally McBeal' star and her nine-year-old son Liam. He said: "I've often taken them to France and England and it's something I like to do. There's nothing quite like it to slow your life down and it was just the three of us, Calista and I and Liam and it was really fun. A real pleasure."
He has been lured aboard Larry Ellison's Americas Cup Entry in 2009 in San Diego. Ellison and crew got a visit and the actor got the opportunity to sail the new BMW Oracle America's Cup boat. Ford addressed the crew, and said he has "admiration for the people whose discipline and dedication are such that they have become members of one of the premiere sailing teams in the world, if not the premier sailing team in the world. My regard for you is very high."
