AceShowbiz - Harrison Ford was keen to look like an old man in "Indiana Jones and the Dial of Destiny". The 80-year-old actor is back as the archaeologist for the fifth and final time in the movie and revealed that he gave the film's stunt team a piece of his mind when they tried to help him dismount from a horse.
"I thought, 'What the f***?' Like I was being attacked by gropers. I look down and there's three stunt guys there making sure I didn't fall off the stirrup. They said, 'Oh, we were just afraid because we thought, you know, and bah bah bah bah.' And I said, 'Leave me the f*** alone... Leave me alone, I'm an old man getting off a horse and I want it to look like that!' " Harrison recalled to Esquire magazine.
Harrison revealed that he wanted to pay a fitting farewell to Indy by creating an "ambitious" flick. He explained, "I wanted an ambitious movie to be the last one. And I don't mean that we didn't make ambitious movies before - they were ambitious in many different ways. But not necessarily as ambitious with the character as I wanted the last one to be."
Ford's age did show at times during the making of the movie as a shoulder injury sustained during a fight scene with co-star Mads Mikkelsen caused him to miss out on eight weeks of production. He said, "Yeah, well, I'm also known for shutting movies down because I get hurt, which is not something you want to be known for. But hey, s*** happens."
Harrison is not slowing down as he is set to make his Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) debut in "Captain America: New World Order" and explained how it is often hard work making a movie. The "Star Wars" actor said, "Yeah. I mean, there are tough days and easy days and fun days and all kinds of days. It's a tough schedule and, yeah, it's fun. But it's not a walk in the park. It's not fun fun. It's work."
