Harrison Ford Crushes His Children's Dreams
By CB 10 years ago
Harrison Ford has refused to help his children become Hollywood stars. The 'Star Wars' actor - who has five children, and is now dating former 'Ally McBeal' star Calista Flockhart - says they'll have to make it on their own.
He revealed in an interview with Scotland's Daily Record newspaper: "My 15-year-old daughter, Georgia, is beginning to show a little bit of interest in acting. "But they suffer from the belief that they have been helped along because a member of the family was successful. I can't work that way."
The 'Indiana Jones' actor - who is in Europe promoting his new movie, 'Firewall' - admits his own incredible success is partly down to pure luck. Ford confessed: "It is difficult to break through in Hollywood now though. It was always - statistically speaking - impossible to become an actor and get paid for it. "Every once in a while the impossible happens and God knows how, but it's not replicable. He added: "You can't just look at somebody else's success or luck and say, 'I'm going to replicate that'. You have to do it for yourself."
