Harrison Ford Morning Glory

But where he could once find the dividing line between the characters he plays and his own grouchy personality, that separation has become less obvious as Ford has gotten older.

Be it the forthcoming Ender's Game or the rumoured reprising of Han Solo in Star Wars VII, you can be sure the one tone delivery will make you wonder what exactly it was that made Harrison Ford so popular.

Ford was described as €œboring€ and a €œc*ck€ by a British TV presenter Claudia Winkleman after she interviewed him. She told Radio Times magazine that, €œHe was a bit up himself, and he was a little bit boring. It€™s not really his fault €” maybe that€™s just how he is.
