During a press conference for his new movie, Indiana Jones and the Dial of Destiny, at the Cannes Film Festival, the well-known actor Harrison Ford happily showed off his honorary Palme d’Or and was praised by reporters. One reporter even told the 80-year-old star that she liked him and thought he was attractive, to which Ford had the right answer. The funny conversation shows how appealing and interesting Ford is to fans, even after all these years.
Ford replied to the unexpected praise with a joke.
During a funny part of the press meeting, the female reporter told Ford that he was “very hot” and that she was shocked to see an actor take off his shirt in the movie. She also asked about his equestrian skills because she was interested in his training routine and skills. Ford replied with a bit of humor by stating that he knew how to ride a horse well and saying, “Let me tell you. I can ride a horse, but only if they let me.”
In jest, the famous actor said of his health, “I have been blessed with this body. Thank you for seeing.” At the end, Ford thanked the reporter for his kind words and said, “Thank you,” which was a joke. I didn’t mean to be rude. “Can you ride a horse?” was the last thing I remembered.
He talked about the way the movie used computer technology to make the actors look younger.
In the fourth movie, Indiana Jones and his goddaughter are in a race against time to find a famous artifact that has the power to change the past. The story goes back in time, and Ford’s character looks like he did decades ago thanks to digital de-aging technology.
Ford praised the changes in technology by saying, “Look, the technology has changed, or this version of that technology has changed, to the point where it seems very real to me.” He said, “That’s how I looked 35 years ago,” to stress that the face in the movie that looks like him when he was younger is his own face and not just digitally changed.
He was also happy with how well the technology was used. So I’m very happy with it, but I don’t look back and think, “I wish I was that guy again,” because I don’t. I’m glad to be here, and you know what? I’m really glad to be getting older. ” Being young was great, but I could be dead, and I’m still working.”
This is the last time Ford will play Indiana Jones.
Ford’s career has been built around the iconic character of the daring, fedora-wearing hero. This character has been in five films over an amazing 40-year period. But when asked if a younger version of the star could be in future “Indy” movies, producer Kathleen Kennedy said “no.” Even though Ford said, “You got the right answer from the right person,”
By going back to the character for the last time, Ford has said that he wants the five-film series to end on a happy note. He said, “I wanted to see what life would do to him. I wanted him to have to start over. I didn’t want him to have a connection like the ones in movies.
The showing of the movie brought tears to everyone’s eyes because it was the end of an era. Ford got a 5-minute standing ovation as a farewell for his part as Dr. Henry Walton “Indiana” Jones, Jr. The audience was sad to see the legendary actor go.
