She started out as Francis Ford Coppolas baby-sitter. And despite having had an impressive career as a screenwriter before marrying her movie star husband in 1983 shed already penned The Black Stallion and E.T.: The Extra-Terrestrial Melissa Mathison surely became a more, shall we say, interesting story after becoming Mrs. Harrison Ford during the height of her husbands career. No longer married, he continues to play Indiana Jones, while she has moved on to writing books.
