Harrison Ford, 80, Reacts to Being Called 'Still Very Hot'
Harrison Ford proved he can still make people swoon in a role he's held for nearly four decades without it feeling stale.
A video shared by Variety from a round table interview following the Cannes premiere of Indiana Jones and the Dial of Destiny shows Ford sandwiched between his costar Mads Mikkelsen and director James Mangold when a reporter took the opportunity to comment on Ford's good looks. "I think you're still very hot," noted the journalist.
The Star Wars alum, 80, closed his eyes in reaction to the blunt remark, sighing as the journalist continued talking, while Mangold laughed at the question directed towards Ford.
"And we were stunned to see you take your shirt off in the second scene. I mean, it's just…you've still got it, how do you keep fit? And really…can you ride a horse?" continued the reporter.

Ford was baffled by the remarks, asking, "What was the last part?"
Mangold helped him out, saying, "[She's asking] can you ride a horse? Which you did onscreen."
"Let me tell you…yeah. I can ride a horse. If they let me," joked Ford in response. He added, "Thank you. I didn't mean to be cruel. I forgot everything up to 'ride a horse.'
"She also asked how you stay fit and stay in shape," reminded Mangold to the actor, adding that he didn't have to respond to the question because Mikkelsen had answered it moments before.
"Look, I've been um…I've been blessed with this body. Thanks for noticing," Ford said, putting on a whispery, sultry voice, making the crowd of reporters erupt in laugher.
Ford's fans won't have to wait too long to see the actor reprise his iconic role shirtless, too. Indiana Jones and the Dial of Destiny is headed to theaters on June 30.
