Harrison Ford had an unsympathetic explanation for why he punched Ryan Gosling in the face

Harrison Ford had an unsympathetic explanation for why he punched Ryan Gosling in the face

It's not every day that an actor gets punched in the face by one of their co-stars on set. But it's exactly what happened between Harrison Ford and Ryan Gosling back in 2017.

The pair were filming Blade Runner 2049 when the punch occurred - and in an unearthed interview, Ford has a pretty unsympathetic explanation for how it all came about. You can watch the clip below:

Appearing on The Graham Norton Show, Ford and Gosling were asked about the punch, and Ford's reaction is pretty hilarious.

"Oh I misread the script," joked Ford.

"No, we were doing a scene in flashing strobe lights, he's walking backwards, I'm walking forwards, you have to make it look like the punch was intended, but I hit him. One out of 100 times I hit him."

Gosling added: "I should be lucky I didn't get hit more is the theme of this, it's not just a punch though a Harrison Ford punch is a different animal altogether."

Ford intercepted: "It was not a good punch," to which Gosling added: "I'll be the judge of that."

Ford also told GQ Magazine at the time: “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."

Meanwhile Gosling added in his own interview: “You know, they say don’t meet your heroes, but I would say the addendum to that is ‘…unless they’re Harrison Ford.’ ‘Cause he’s a cool motherf**ker.”

The fifth instalment to the incredible movie franchise sees Ford put on his archeological gear and legendary whip once again for the last time.

What's more, Disney has managed to dramatically de-age the 80-year-old actor to what he looked like a few decades ago and it looks incredible.

The trailer was aired during Disney's CCXP expo, where big-name studios like 20th Century Studios, Disney, Disney Animation, Lucasfilm, Marvel Studios and Pixar all give updates on what people can expect to see in the future.
