Indiana Jones, or Han Solo, Married the Original Skeletor Yesterday

Harrison Ford married his long-term girlfriend Calista Flockhart yesterday in a ceremony at the Governor’s Mansion in Santa Fe, New Mexico.  Ford is currently shooting Cowboys and Aliens there.  And the movie?  Sounds … just great.

When I was a little girl, Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom was just about my favorite movie ever. I wanted to marry “Indy.” And due to recent events, I can definitely say, in retrospect, that my little girl-self would be rolling over in her pink Jem pajamas to find out that he married Calista Flockhart, the actress formerly known as Skeletor.

While Calista looks beautiful and attractive these days, I can’t help but always be reminded of her crazy-skinny years, where the mere idea of sex with Indy Ford could result in a trip to the hospital for a broken clavicle. Or something.

Congrats to the happy couple!

Calista Flockhart and Son Liam at Fred Segal

I was intrigued by these pictures of Calista Flockhart and Denise Richards treating their children like extra baggage while shopping at Fred Segal in L.A. on Saturday.

Denise’s little girls cling to mommy’s shopping bag handles while Flockhart attempts to do everything in her power to avoid actually holding hands with adopted son Liam while he totes her shopping bags.

Is it just me, or does it seem like Calista Flockhart would be one hellish nightmare of  a stepmother/mother? I’m basing this on absolutely no evidence whatsoever, other than pictures like those above (and below) and the fact that she is frighteningly skinny. I mean,the poor kids can’t even hug her for fear of eviscerating themselves on her clavicle.

Harrison Ford & Calista Flockhart Are Engaged

Insert obligatory joke about his oldness and her weight

Insert obligatory joke about his oldness and her weight.

There are times when you think someone famous has died. Then they show up on some late night talk show and turn your entire worldview on its head with their disturbing refusal to die. I’m not naming names, but Martin Landau, I’m lookin at you. Or rather, kind of in your direction and to the side of you because your face is scary.

And then there are times when a celebrity couple announces their engagement and you say, “I thought they were already married. For like, six years now.”

And that’s exactly what I said when I read the official announcement that Harrison Ford popped the question to girlfriend of 7 years Calista Flockhart over Valentine’s Day weekend. Congratulations. Everyone already thought you were married.

Next week I’ll be announcing that I’ve been born.
