Happy 75th Birthday, Harrison Ford, You Sexy, Grouchy Man
Today is the 75th birthday of one of cinema’s great icons, one of its most endearing symbols of the geek age, and easily one of the foxiest fuckers on the big screen. Yes, Han Solo himself, Dr Indiana Jones, Rick Dekard and one of dozens of Jack Ryans - Harrison Ford!
With worldwide grosses of $6bn to his name, making him the highest-grossing U.S. domestic box-office star ever, Ford remains an absolute favourite for people like me who spent way too many rainy Saturdays marathoning the Indiana Jones films and engaging in exceptionally detailed arguments as to who was hotter: Rugged adventurer Indy or awkward geek professor Indy. I mean, it’s obvious that the answer is the latter, but some people still needed convincing.
There are many great qualities to this former carpenter turned Oscar nominated leading man: The smile, the old school roguish charm, the criminally underrated dramatic chops, the refusal to stop flying planes even though he seems kind of crap at it, and his late-age crankiness. He does not give a fuck and we love it.
We could talk for many paragraphs on Harrison Ford but let’s be honest, you’re here for the photos.
So happy birthday to Harrison Ford, and remember, Carrie Fisher tapped that.
