Movie enthusiasts have dubbed actor Harrison Ford the ultimate “tough guy.” His roles have helped him carve an illustrious multi-decade career.


As he draws closer to 80,  his acting career has slowed down but he is still a firm fan favorite. Some of Harrison Ford's best roles included Hans Solo in the original "Star Wars" movies and the title character in the Indiana Jones series.

While his career flourished, however, his personal life was not as successful. The star was married three times and has five children. Here is a look at his family:

Harrison Ford married his first wife, Mary Marquardt in 1964. The two were college sweethearts and had two sons, Benjamin and Willard.

While the details of their relationship remained private, it is well known that a brief love affair with actress Carrie Fischer contributed to their divorce. After 15 years together, the pair divorced in 1979.

Harrison Ford’s second marriage was with the famous American screenwriter, Melissa Mathison. She penned the 1990’s children films "E.T. The Extra-Terrestrial" and "The Indian in The Cupboard." The two met on the set of "Apocalypse Now" and married in 1983.

They also share two children, Malcolm and Georgia. Mathison filed for divorce in 2001 after claiming that Ford was “partying with other women” and the divorce was finalized three years later as there was no prenup agreement in place. Mathison passed away on November 4, 2015, from cancer.
