Harrison Ford on punching Ryan Gosling in the face in Blade Runner 2049

Harrison Ford Blade Runner 2049 Ryan Gosling

In an interview with GQ last year, Ryan Gosling spoke about being punched in the face by Harrison Ford while filming a fight scene for BLADE RUNNER 2049. When ice was brought over to treat Gosling's face, Ford promptly appropriated it for his own fist, but came by afterwards with a bottle of scotch and a glass by way of apology. After pouring Ryan Gosling a drink, Ford walked away with the rest of the bottle. GQ finally got to catch up with Harrison Ford and asked the actor for his take on the incident, who confirmed that he did punch Ryan Gosling in the face, but added that "Ryan Gosling's face was where it should not have been."

“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 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.”

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 fucking expect the whole bottle? You know, I figured one drink would fix it. That was enough.”

So did that epitomize your working relationship?

“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.”

I love that man. Anticipation for the BLADE RUNNER sequel has been high, and with the release of the film just several weeks away, we'll soon know whether or not director Denis Villeneuve has been able to pull it off. Everything we've seen from BLADE RUNNER 2049 seems to indicate that he has, but I suppose that we should be mindful to keep our expectations in check, although personally, my hype has reached maximum levels. Do as I say, not as I do.

BLADE RUNNER 2049 opens in theaters on October 6, 2017.
