Veteran HOLLYWOOD HOMICIDE star Harrison Ford knew he was in love the moment he met belle CALISTA FLOCKHART - even though he didn't recognise her from her role in hit show Ally Mcbeal.

The couple began dating in 2002 after meeting at the Golden GlobeS award ceremony, and twice-divorced Harrison knew it was true love from the moment their eyes first me across a crowded room.

Harrison swoons, "I am in love. From the moment we met, things felt right. I am never good with this kind of stuff, but we both thought we had something of a future together. I feel great, my kids are OK and my life is in a good place at the moment.

"I did not recognise her instantly. I had seen Ally McBeal a few times but I am not a big television watcher. I prefer to watch news or documentaries, if at all. So I was aware of the show and how unique it was, and that was about it."

The What Lies Beneath actor adds, "e had a conversation for about 20 minutes and we have taken it from there. She has accepted a lot of things about me. I am in no rush to do anything, and neither is she. We just enjoy each other's company."
