I could spend all day listening to Harrison Ford try to find ways to stop me from asking him things.

I still remember the one time Steve Carell subbed for Stewart on The Daily Show and Ford was the guest. His first question was "What's the one thing you get asked that bothers you the most". His reply was "I guess it's stuff about my family". Then Carell said "Well let's talk about that".

It loses something when you can't hear the way he intoned it, but I laughed REALLY hard.

Twas a worthwhile read. Thanks subby.

I like the way he thinks, just so long as he keeps his planes off my f*cking lawn...

I can get behind this.
"Boring conversation anyway"

Carell has shifted mostly to dreams, I guess, but that guy was witty as hell.

Ford had enough of Gossling's "runway" jokes.

about 2-3 years ago my neighbors went to some huge national aircraft convention in like, Minnesota or some shiat (the husband is an aerospace engineer and builds model planes).

he says they and 5-10 other folks are walking back to their cars by some hangar or some shiat, late in the day, and they get a little airhorn honk and "please move aside, we're coming through" and they look back.  Harrison Ford and Calista Flockhart on a golf cart, being shuttled to some VIP or what the fark area.  everyone goes nuts, and Ford is kind enough to stop the cart and meet everyone (despite his crotchety reputation).  his only 'ask' or demand was no pictures.  he shook hands with everyone and signed an autograph or two but insisted on no pictures.

so when the guy tells me this i of course nerd out:  "you shook Han Solo's hand?????!??  CAN I SHAKE YOUR HAND??!??!?"  "yes!  i really wanted a picture but didn't want to piss him off...."

Wow, in over 30 years of being a Harrison Ford fan, that's the best, most satisfying interview I have ever read with him. Great job, GQ!

Is there a supercut of just Harrison Ford punching people?

Channeling your inner Inspiro-bot? Man, that would make a good one :)

Even in dramas he is witty. Great in Big Short and I'm excited to see him play Riggs

If Harrison Ford punches someone, I assume they said something that provoked it like "Hello, Mr Ford. How are you today?"

One Nazi was just trying to fill his plane with fuel when Ford attacked him

It's about a quarter as long of the supercut of people punching Harrison Ford.

"He is coming to Boston to pick up an aviation award..."

Wait. What?

So you are saying he did not see that?

I wonder if he knows that his crotchety shiat just makes people like him more.
 
2017-09-13 08:28:31 PM  
Wow... i love that article... thanks for sharing Subby!

I wasn't sure if i thought he might be a little flakey in true life, but now i am definitely coming away liking that dude more than ever.

He's really leaning in on the grumpy old man persona. I remember when Star Wars VII was in the works, and he was booked on Conan's TBS show.
Conan asked him about any rumors about Star Wars. Ford shrugs. Conan produces some money. Ford pockets the money, learns forward and fake-whispers in a conspiratorial tone "I hear they're making another one"

Good read. He looks like Leonard Cohen, actually.

Very much agree. Not sure what it was, I think the whole "let's just see how all this just play out" style of the interviewer.

"I'm interested in preserving the question for the audience," Ford tells me. "I mean, part of the idea of whether or not he's a replicant is that there's not a definitive answer."

Harrison Ford gets it.

Yep. After the last two Alien movies, Ridley Scott is dead to me. I'm so glad the guy who did Arrival and Sicario did the new Blade Runner. Still can't pronounce/spell his name, though. I'll just call him "guy who did Sicario."

Ridley Scott can make great movies if he's given a great script, great performers and a producer who can keep him on track. If any of those are missing he winds up making schlock.

This may be the first time I actually read the farking article.

Thanks subby.

This. The second you definitely answer it the story loses its power.

He's not a replicant. The story works better if hr isn't a replicant.
