Harrison Ford praised for hilarious reaction to reporter telling him he is 'still very hot'
| Last updated
Actor, Harrison Ford has been described as 'one of the hottest men of all time' and, to be honest, they're not wrong.
Ford is known for his longstanding career serving as lead roles in iconic action film series' like Indiana Jones, Blade Runner and, probably the biggest Sci-Fi film franchise to ever hit the screen, Star Wars.
The films he's starred in have grossed more than $5.4 billion in North America and over $9.3 billion worldwide. In layman's terms, Harrison Ford is regarded as an American cultural icon. But not only that, he's also widely recognised as one of the more eye-pleasing actors of the past however many decades.
In a recent interview at Cannes, speaking on his latest Indiana Jones film, Ford was flustered by a question a keen reporter had for him.
The reporter, clearly a big fan, blurted out that they still think Harrison is as easy on the eye as he ever was after a whole eight decades on the planet.

The reporter said: "I think you're still very hot, and we were stunned to see you take your shirt off in the second scene, and you still got it!"
Harrison broke eye contact to awkwardly cover his mouth as the room erupted into laughter.
The reporter then continued with probably the most confusing sentence, adding: "How do you keep fit? And can you ride a horse?"
Harrison furrowed his brow and paused for a second, giving a 'Did she really just ask me that?' sort-of look, before laughing and responding: "What was the last part?"
American filmmaker, James Mangold, was sat to his right and reestablished the question for him, answering the horse part with: "You did, right there on screen."
"Let me tell ya, yeah, I can ride a horse." grinned Ford, pausing for effect as the room burst into laughter again when he added, "If they let me."
He apologises to the reporter for coming off as 'cruel' and looks around before whispering: "I've been blessed with this body. Thanks for noticing."
The last installation to the Indiana Jones franchise, Indiana Jones and the Dial of Destiny is set for UK cinema release on 30 June this year.
Film critics who have already seen the movie have given it mixed reviews so far, with the Independent saying that Harrison ford 'carries' the film and the BBC describing it as a 'gloomy and depressing final act'.
