Harrison Ford is on the cover of GQ this month and it appears he gives as few craps today as he has in the past.

The highlight of the interview with GQ is when Ford decides to tell his version of the story where he punched Blade Runner 2049 co-star Ryan Gosling in the face.
“I punched Ryan Gosling in the face,” Ford confirms. Then he adds, by way of clarification, that “Ryan Gosling’s face was where it should not have been.”
Explain further, if you will.
“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 only hit Gosling once during the take. That sounds luck but Ford would use another word; grateful.
So he should be grateful?
“I have pointed that out.”
And the one that did connect—that’s 100 percent his fault?
“No.” Ford makes as though he’s carefully weighing this. “I mean, I suppose it’s 90 percent his fault.”
That is very—
“—generous of me.”
So what happens when you get punched in the face by Harrison Ford?
He said you went to his dressing room with a bottle of scotch…
…and poured him a glass, then walked out with the bottle.
“Yeah? What—did he fucking expect the whole bottle? You know, I figured one drink would fix it. That was enough.”
When asked if that was the epitome of their working relationship Ford agreed but was quick to point out how much he respects his co-star.
“Pretty much. No, he 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. He knows what he’s doing.”
Harrison Ford is loving the fact that he gets to be a grumpy old man in public and we all still love him for it.
Summary: Thirty years after the events of the first film, a new blade runner, LAPD Officer K (Ryan Gosling), unearths a long-buried secret that has the potential to plunge what’s left of society into chaos. K’s discovery leads him on a quest to find Rick Deckard (Harrison Ford), a former LAPD blade runner who has been missing for 30 years.
Blade Runner 2049, directed by Denis Villeneuve, stars Harrison Ford, Ryan Gosling, Ana de Armas, Robin Wright, and Jared Leto. It will be released on October 6th.
