He still has it.
Harrison Ford first played Indiana Jones in 1981’s “Raiders of the Lost Ark,” and more than forty years later he still had fans and journalists in Cannes who fainted.
At the press conference for Ford’s latest Jones movie, “The Dial of Destiny,” an arrogant journalist stood up and told Ford he still found her “hot.”
Later, he even brought up a shirtless scene playing the rowdy archaeologist in his latest movie.
“I was given this body,” the 80-year-old Ford joked. “Thanks for noticing.”
When asked at the press conference why Ford last wore the Jones hat, the eighty replied, “Isn’t it obvious?”
I need to sit and rest for a while. I love the job, I love this character, and I love what it has brought to my life.
But Ford later reiterated at the press conference several times how much he loved working. “I’m really happy with my age,” he said. “I love being old. It was great being young, but st, I may be dead and I’m still working so go figure it out.
Yıldız was also awarded the honorary Palme d’Or at the Cannes Film Festival.
Before the premiere of “The Dial of Destiny,” the festival played a sizzling reel of Ford as Indy, which the 80-year-old actor has played since he was 37.
“I was very touched, very impressed by it,” Ford said at the premiere. “They say you see your life flashing before your eyes when you’re about to die, and I just saw my life flash before my eyes.”
Ford thanked his wife, Calista Flockhart, who joined the crowd.
“My life was facilitated by my beloved wife, who supported my passion and dreams, and I am grateful,” he said.
Ford and Flockhart have been married since 2002.
Karlie Kloss, Gemma Chan, and “Stranger Things” star Charlie Heaton traveled to Carlton Beach for an after party after a standing ovation from the crowd, including Ford, Flockhart, Mads Mikkelsen, and more.
Also touring the party was Disney boss Bob Iger.
Star Phoebe Waller-Bridge, who starred in the movie, has rarely appeared with her longtime boyfriend, “The Banshees of Inisherin” director Martin McDonagh.
The “Fleabag” actor was spotted chatting and smoking in the VIP section. Very French!
