Harrison Ford likes four things: his family, flying small planes, Indiana Jones and earrings.
None of those things are Star Wars and he reminded us of that over the weekend...
And Ford weighed in on the online debate over whether Han Solo returned as a Force ghost, since the character was not a Jedi or overly Force sensitive. Coming back as a Force ghost would have placed Han Solo in league with Yoda and Obi-Wan Kenobi.
"A Force ghost? I don’t know what a Force ghost is," Ford said, before going into a whisper so as not to disturb rabid "Star Wars" fans.
"Don’t tell anyone. I’m not talking loud enough for your recorder. I have no (expletive) idea what a Force ghost is. And I don’t care!"
So Han Solo. (via USA Today)
For those wondering, the "expletive" he used was "fucking."
Harrison Ford has made it clear for many, many years that he really doesn't give a shit about Star Wars. Sure, some of it is a schtick, but he was worn down from the franchise as early as right around when 'Empire Strikes Back' was released in 1980. He wanted Han Solo to die for over 30 years!
Look, if I was Harrison Ford I would also be a touch sick and tired of only ever hearing about Star Wars. He wasn't (and isn't) a "one role" guy. Beyond Indiana Jones, he has so many other iconic characters and movies, so not loving the constant Han Solo talk surely gets annoying.
As I mentioned, it's, to a point, a bit of a schtick, but you know deep down inside a small part of him just fucking hates the characters at this point.
