Harrison Ford and Calista Flockhart face awkward error at Indiana Jones premiere

Harrison Ford, 80, made a very rare red carpet appearance with his wife Calista Flockhart, 58, at the star-studded premiere of Indiana Jones And The Dial of Destiny.

However, the acting couple were met with an awkward shock as he found his seat at the Cannes Film Festival event.

Ford cut a dapper figure in a black tuxedo suit with a white shirt and a large bow tie.

Meanwhile, his Ally McBeal wife looked glamorous in a plunging black tulle gown with a structured bodice and A-line skirt.

She flashed a huge smile at her husband as they posed for pictures together on the red carpet, prior to finding their seat for the long-awaited premiere.

In footage obtained by TMZ, Ford can be seen giving his wife the side-eye as they found their seats for the Cannes premiere with Flockhart being sat behind her famous husband.

It is unclear who is responsible for the mishap, with the mix-up appearing to puzzle Ford who also received an honorary Palme d’Or prior to the screening.

Ahead of the premiere, audiences saw a highlight reel of the actor’s career before he took to the stage to present the film.

Becoming emotional, he said: “They say when you’re about to die you see your life flash before your eyes. And I just saw my life flash before my eyes.

“A great part of my life but not all of my life.

“My life has been enabled by my lovely wife, supporting my passion and my dreams and I’m grateful.”

Addressing the audience directly, he continued: “And I love you too.

“You’ve given my life purpose and meaning and I’m grateful for that. So grateful to have the opportunity to work with others like … Phoebe (Waller-Bridge) and Mads (Mikkelsen).

“I am deeply moved by this honour, and humbled – but I got a movie you gotta see. So let me get out of the way.”

The fifth instalment of the Indiana Jones franchise takes place in the years depicted between 1989’s Indiana Jones And The Last Crusade and Indiana Jones And The Kingdom of the Crystal Skull.

The latter film, starring Shia LaBeouf alongside Ford, also had its world premiere at Cannes in 2008.

The 2023 Cannes Film Festival has already seen appearances from other major Hollywood stars including Ethan Hawke, Johnny Depp and Dame Helen Mirren.

At the opening of the festival, fellow Hollywood legend Michael Douglas was also presented with an honorary Palme d’Or, with the actor also becoming emotional.

He was supported by his wife Catherine-Zeta Jones and daughter Carys Douglas in the audience.
