Harrison Ford and Anne Heche’s six days and seven nights age difference may surprise you

Harrison Ford has had several younger on-screen love interests throughout his career – Carrie Fisher was 14 years younger than him in Star Wars, and even Karen Allen in Raiders of the Lost Ark was 9 years younger. In the 1998 film Six Days, Seven Nights, Ford and Anne Heche played romantic characters 26 years apart. At the time of the film’s release, Ford was 55 and Heche was 29.

Despite how the dynamic may have played out on screen, Heche was positive about Ford’s support for her career. Heche faced backlash at the time due to her relationship with Ellen DeGeneres, but as she recalled in Vanity FairFord stepped in to give her a vote of confidence. “He said, ‘Honestly, my dear, I don’t care who you sleep with. We need to make a romantic comedy. Let’s make it the best ever,” Heche recalls Ford’s words. She went on to say, “That’s why Harrison Ford is my hero. Support me at a time when the power of what I stood for could be overthrown.”
