Harrison Ford Gives Hilarious Response to a Reporter Calling Him 'Still Very Hot' at Cannes
This 80-year-old iconic American actor doesn't just look "hot," per this journalist but he also possesses an incredible sense of humor. In a recent press interaction at the Cannes Film Festival, Harrison Ford was flattered by a journalist who described him as "still very hot." The legend, however, won the audience with his hilarious response.
Undoubtedly, even at 80, Ford is still a heartthrob. He has been described as one of the hottest men of all time. But it's a different sort of a 'kick' to be publicly complimented and Ford modestly accepted it while the audience erupted in laughter. Ford is famous for his longstanding successful career in lead roles in action film series' like Indiana Jones, Blade Runner and probably the biggest sci-fi film franchise that has ever hit the screen, Star Wars. This time, while Ford was promoting Indiana Jones and the Dial of Destiny at the Cannes Film Festival, a reporter took her chance and flirted with the American actor. She said, "I think you are still very hot." The man himself looked flabbergasted upon receiving such open admiration.
The reporter/fan was quite upfront in revealing her true feelings for Ford and continued her flattery, "We were stunned to see you take your shirt off in the second scene. You have still got it." LOL. Ford was dumbfounded for a few seconds and fidgeted a little. Quite a lot to take in, we understand. Haha! The Indiana Jones star then crossed his arms, leaned closer to his microphone and cracked a little smile. He seemed to be processing the journalist's comments while his co-star, Mads Mikkelsen and the film's director James Mangold appeared amused by the whole situation. Hilarious.
But that was not all. The reporter threw another weird question to Ford, "How do you keep fit and can you ride a horse?" Ford lost track of the questions, furrowed his eyebrow and asked, "What was the last part?" Mangold repeated the question for him. Ford looked ready to shoot a sassy answer to the journalist and said, "Let me tell you, yeah, I can ride a horse." He paused and continued, "If they let me." Subsequently, he apologized to the reporter and said, "Thank you, I didn't mean to be cruel," he said. Continuing the playful conversation, Ford altered his voice and responded, "Look, I have been blessed with this body." Laughter from the crowd ensued and then he took a dramatic pause before ending his conversation with the journalist by saying, "Thanks for noticing."
Twitter admirers grabbed the opportunity and left hilarious comments for the American legend. A Twitter user, @AudreyManaster2 wrote, "Such a character, Harrison is hilarious." Another @av1los said, "As good as that was to read, to [actually] see and hear it is everything! His delivery of that response."
