Read Harrison Ford's hilariously unsympathetic account of punching Ryan Gosling in the face

If you've ever seen a Harrison Ford film, you've probably seen him punch someone. Of course, Ford isn't actually punching his fellow actors — that's just a bit of movie magic.

Last November, though, Ford's Blade Runner 2049 costar Ryan Gosling admitted Ford had actually landed one on his face. As Ford himself recently confirmed bluntly to GQ: "I punched Ryan Gosling in the face."

"[Gosling's] job was to be out of the range of the punch," Ford explained. "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."

Ford, of course, is a veteran on-screen fighter while Gosling, at this point, is perhaps better versed in serenades than sucker punches. At least, that's the way Ford portrays it:

And the [punch] that did connect — that's 100 percent [Gosling's] 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."

He said you went to his dressing room with a bottle of scotch…

"I did."

…and poured him a glass, then walked out with the bottle.

"Yeah? What — did he f---ing expect the whole bottle? You know, I figured one drink would fix it. That was enough." [GQ]
