Harrison Ford has a frugal life as a star; only perk is flying planes
HollywoodNews.com: As a movie star, Harrison Ford’s only extravagance is his fleet of planes.
Ford, 67, revealed recently that he lives his life with wife Calista Flockhart, “quite frugally.”
“I’ve never bought a single suit in my whole life. Instead, I just always wear the clothes from my films.”
Ford is a licensed pilot of fixed-wing aircrafts and helicopters.
“I’m so grateful that people still want to see me on screen — with my fees I can finance my armada,” says the “Indiana Jones” headliner, “if I didn’t get any roles anymore I would have to go by plane as a normal passenger.
“Initially it was just about learning something new: I wanted to know exactly how to operate an aircraft. It appealed to me to develop all these capabilities that you need as a pilot.
“It also gives you a wonderful feeling of freedom when you are the master of your own airplane. But I’m not a daredevil, I want to bring my family safely home.”
