Harrison Ford has reflected on being a parent.

The award-winning actor recently sat down for an interview with Esquire and admitted that he could “probably be a better parent” if he had a “less successful” career.

The Indiana Jones star told the publication, “Certainly the more constant gardener is the better parent. I’ve been out of town, up my own a*s, for most of my life.”

Harrison, 80, stated that he accepted and owns his “flaws and failures”, however, he revealed that he will not go to therapy, despite his wife, Calista Flockhart, encouraging him to do so.

“I do take my mental health seriously,” the father of five told Esquire. “I was trying to say, as I explained to her: It’s that I accommodate all of the flaws that people go to psychiatrists to accommodate because I accept my flaws.”

The Star Wars actor and Calista, who tied the knot in 2010, share adopted son Liam, 22.

The actor also shares sons Benjamin, 55, and Willard, 54, with his first ex-wife Mary Marquardt, and Malcolm, 35, and Georgia, 32, with his second wife, late screenwriter Melissa Mathison.
