Today’s celebrity thing – Harrison Ford explaining how he came to hit Ryan Gosling

Harrison Ford was asked by GQ magazine how he came to punch Ryan Gosling during the filming of the Blade Runner sequel.

His answer quickly went viral on Twitter. We love you Harrison.

And just in case that’s tricky to read …

“I punched Ryan Gosling in the face. Ryan Gosling’s face was where it should not have been.

“His job was to be out of the range of the punch. My job was also to make sure that I pulled the punch. But we were moving, and the camera was moving, so I had to be aware of the angle to the camera to make the punch look good. You know, I threw about a hundred punches in the shooting of it and I only hit him once.”

[So he should be grateful?]

“I have pointed that out … It’s 90% his fault.”

[That is very…”]

“… generous of me.”

[He said you went to his dressing room with a bottle of scotch, poured him a glass then walked out with the bottle?]

“I did. What – did he fucking expect the whole bottle? You know, I figured one drink would fix it. That was enough.”

[Ford said Gosling was “fun to work with”]

“I like him a lot. He’s a smart guy. I mean, he’s a fucking Mouseketeer – he’s been doing this since he was 6 years old or something.”
