Harrison Ford stars in the new film, Paranoia alongside of Liam Hemsworth but it sounds as if his wife, Calista Flockhart is the one that has been an emotional wreck lately. The 70-year old actor had a skin cancer tumor originally develop on his nose that specialists’ believed could be malignant and it looks as though Ford has already undergone surgery to remove the growth. But now a similar problem has developed on the actor’s throat. According to the Sept. 2nd print edition of The National Enquirer the affected area is clearly still visible and Ford may have already begun reconstructive surgery to hide it.
The nose tumor itself was likely a basal cell carcinoma, a type of tumor that doesn’t spread to internal organs or enter the bloodstream. It’s not life threatening but certainly can cause disfigurement, something even an older actor can’t afford to have happen, hence the plastic surgery.
This whole situation is said to have really rattled Calista. She more than 20 years younger than Ford and it’s an age difference that she tries not to think about but this medical issue scares the hell out of her. She can’t even imagine her life without Ford not to mention the fact that they share an 11-year old son. Calista and Ford have one of the those relationships that has already lasted a lifetime by Hollywood’s standards and they are rock solid. Ford’s cancer scare reminds them both that just because they are happy that doesn’t mean that they are going to be permanent.
Ironically, the usually stand-offish couple was spotted getting very cozy together recently while watching their son, Liam, play soccer. Perhaps this medical crisis has brought them closer and now they no longer care who sees their moments of PDA. Are you surprised that Calista and Harrison have lasted as a couple for so long? What do you think their secret is? Tell us your thoughts in the comments below!
