Although the actress and the Star Wars icon have a 22-year age gap between them, Calista says that their age difference has always been a “non-issue” in their relationship.
“The truth is, I sometimes feel very much older than Harrison,” the former Brothers & Sisters star told the outlet. “Sometimes, I even say, ‘Wow, I keep forgetting that he’s 22 years older than me.’ It doesn’t factor into our relationship at all. I like the way he looks first thing in the morning. It’s not handsome, it’s more cute. He looks like a little boy.”
Harrison and Calista first met at the 2002 Golden Globes and later tied the knot in June 2010 after dating for eight years. “I was 60 when I fell in love with Calista,” the actor told Hello in 2009, calling his wife a “wonderful lady.” He added, “What surprised me most was that I was still capable of establishing a long-lasting relationship, making a serious commitment.”
Together, Calista and Harrison are raising the actress’ son, Liam, whom she adopted in 2001, one year before she began dating the movie icon.
“Harrison is a wonderful parent,” Calista said of her handsome hubby, who also has four older children from his two past marriages. “He’s funny and warm and loving.”
“She said, ‘Come to dinner with me and Harrison.’ I’m like, ‘Me, you and him?’ It turned out to be a small group of us, thankfully, but I ended up as her wingman,” he told Playboy in a 2013 interview.
After dinner, the group went back to Harrison’s home for drinks and music. “He was giggly and goofy around her but pretty aloof with the rest of us,” James remembered. “We had more drinks, he played more music and then at some point, he gave me a look that said, ‘OK, you’ve got to get the f—k out of here.’” More than 20 years later, the couple is just as crazy about each other as they were during their first date.
