Harrison Ford and Ryan Gosling should have known they were in for a hilarious interview right off the bat when they sat down with This Morning‘s Alison Hammond in London this week while promoting their new film, Blade Runner 2049. After she admitted to never having seen the original movie, Ryan said, «I appreciate your candor,» before laughing and opening up a miniature bottle of alcohol. Between Harrison’s dry sense of humor and Alison’s over-the-top laughter, the interview left everyone passing around whiskey by the end. The video has since gone viral and it’s easy to understand why. Watch it in its entirety above. We guarantee it’ll make your day.
As you might have heard, Josh Gordon has been spotted around Cleveland this week and Browns fans are losing their minds over him potentially applying for reinstatement. This is where Browns fans are at through four weeks — obsessing over a guy who hasn’t played in an NFL game since 2014.
Josh took to Snap Tuesday afternoon to let Browns fans know he’s onto their creeping. He’s like 80-20 amused and fearful of his life:
We here at BC HQ have no doubts weirdo fans will continue to stalk Gordon around town, so we’re going to go ahead and recommend they do it in this Browns 1993 Ford Ranger. At the very least this lets Josh know you’re tailing him.
93 Ford Ranger 700 or best offer runs and drives has new windshield new U-joints had four brand new tires but the person that installed them rip the side wall so it has three good little work truck are perfect for tailgating serious inquires only
Last year, Ryan Gosling shared one of the most Harrison Ford stories ever, wherein Harrison Ford «accidentally» punched Gosling in the face. Gosling’s version of events ended with this line: «You know, they say don’t meet your heroes, but I would say the addendum to that is ‘…unless they’re Harrison Ford.’ ‘Cause he’s a cool motherfucker.»
This week, GQ followed up with Harrison Ford’s version of events, and a good Harrison Ford story is now a great Harrison Ford story:
When I interviewed Ryan Gosling for GQ last November, he was in Budapest to film Blade Runner 2049, and he explained how Ford had inadvertently punched him in the face during a fight scene. I wanted to give Ford the opportunity to present his own account of the same incident.
«I punched Ryan Gosling in the face,» Ford confirms. Then he adds, by way of clarification, that «Ryan Gosling’s face was where it should not have been.»
Explain further, if you will.
«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…
…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.»
See? Cool motherfucker. I would suggest, however, that Jacob Pitt’s Harrison Ford story is still slightly better. (Pitts, by the way, plays a skeezy rapey motherfucker on Sinner, and all the love and goodwill he built up as Deputy U.S. Marshal Tim Gutterson on Justified has completely evaporated).
Harrison Ford is forever? Maybe that explains how his 75-year-old ass has been able to walk away from multiple plane accidents.
Last December, Ryan Gosling told GQ a story about how he took a punch to his pretty face from Harrison while filming Blade Runner 2049. It was during a take where Harrison was supposed to stage punch Ryan, but Harrison ended up getting a real one in. Now it’s time for Harrison’s side of the story.
Harrison talked to GQ for their October issue, and they cover a lot of ground. Like Carrie Fisher’s revelation that she regularly hooked up with Harrison during the filming of Star Wars. Harrison didn’t really want to talk about that. One thing he did want to talk about was that action scene gone wrong. According to Harrison, it’s Ryan Gosling’s fault.
“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.”
Ryan Gosling claimed that Harrison Ford came to “apologize” with a bottle of scotch, which he proceeded to pour a glass for Ryan and leave with the bottle. Oh, Harrison doesn’t deny that at all.
“Yeah? What – did he fucking expect the whole bottle? You know, I figured one drink would fix it. That was enough…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.”
Oh my god Harrison, stop – you’re going to kill him! First you threaten to end his career by fucking up his gorgeous face, and now you’re body slamming his ego with that not-subtle Mousketeer shade.
I think Harrison forgot for a second that he too has done some embarrassing shit in the past. But Harrison says that he doesn’t wear that mid-life crisis earring anymore.
“Fuck. No, I just woke up one morning…I think I lost it somewhere. Fell out. But I just never put it back in. I just forget about it..If they thought that was the result of midlife crisis, I was happy enough with that. I had a midlife crisis and that’s the only sign.”
If Ryan wants to get Harrison back, he could always bring up the fact that Harrison admitted his sexy earring was the result of a trip to Claire’s. I wonder if while he was there, Calista Flockhart caved and also let him get a pack of BFF toe rings and a pencil with a springy glitter frog on the cap.

Are you a Vols diehard who has around $ 11K laying around and need a flashy new toy to show off for the upcoming season? If so, the classic 1923 Ford T-Bucket above might be worth a look. The seller, Vols fan John, is apparently looking to cash in a few weeks before the season opener and has an asking price of $ 11,400.
Buying a vehicle from the 20s for tailgating purposes is obviously a risky proposition, but apparently it’s only logged 555 miles in the last 13 years. Also, it has a new radiator and carburetor kit so you should be good.
Attention VOL Fans!!!
I’m selling my 1923 Ford T-Bucket all set for cruising game day for $ 11,400.
Chevy 350 with 400 automatic transmission, 4-barrel Holley 600 carburetor.
Motor has good sounding cam. New Headers, radiator and carburetor kit.
Cherry wood dash with Warner gauges. Only 555 miles since I’ve owned the last 13 years.

Fun to drive, Clean Michigan title but have the original Tennessee title.
Might want to figure out how you’re transporting this baby from Michigan to Knoxville before committing.
Shoutout to BC reader @LargeInfant for tipping us off on the Michigan Wolverines 1998 Ford Explorer Eddie Bauer above. It’s not every day you see a random Explorer dripped in maize and blue (interior included), but here it is for all the Michigan procrastinators who need a ride for the upcoming season.
The current owner claims to “love it” and just had new brake pads installed, but he’s looking to move it after buying something new. His asking price? A very reasonable $ 1,600.

$ 1,600 – Battle Creek, MI
4×4 with 5.0l V8. Runs good. No known problems and just had new pads in front. Close to 220,000 miles. Not driven winters since I’ve owned it. I love it but bought something different.

Michigan kicks ass on the horn:
Once again, Team BC has come through in the clutch for procrastinating Lions fans who need a ride for the upcoming season. I mean, what better vehicle to take to Ford Field than the classic 1972 Ford Ranchero GT above?
You’ve obviously got the Lions decals plastered all over the car, but most importantly, the owner has rebuilt the engine, transmission and installed new brakes — he (or she) is looking to land $ 22,000.
Excellent example of the Ranchero’s best year. Rebuilt 351 Cleveland runs strong, rebuilt trans, new brakes, shocks, sway bars, this vehicle has been gone through. Black bucket seats, GT gauges, AC, very clean. This car/truck comes with a rare bed cover that is super cool.
It’s worth noting that the Lions themes are removable in case you hate the Lions and just want to add this car to your collection.
You would think that someone who is so dedicated to music that they get a music-themed armband tattoo should be guaranteed a long and successful career, but that’s not what happened in Willa Ford’s case. Willa recently spoke to Billboard about a possible comeback, and the career that never was.
Willa’s first and only single was the slut anthem I Wanna Be Bad. It was everything good about pop music of the early 00s. Choreography you could easily recreate with your friends, felony levels of autotune, pretend driving, frosty highlights, a clear message we can all relate to.
I Wanna Be Bad was released in May 2001, and it was a hit. Her first album Willa Was Here was released two months later. A second single, Did Ya’ Understand That, was set for release two months after that. But much like Mariah trying to explain the box office demise of Glitter, Willa says that second single was a dud because it was released on September 11, 2001.
“Everything that happened that day froze; the world stood still, as it should have. My second single didn’t do well because anything that launched that day kind of got canned.”
Did Ya’ Understand That was apparently released on December 4, 2001. I can’t remember back that far, so I’m guessing that means it was re-released later? I’ll take Willa’s word for it. Anyway, Willa says she didn’t mind so much that 9/11 overshadowed her second single’s release. But then the record company she was with got acquired by another company and Willa Ford sort of got lost in the shuffle. Although she didn’t mind; Willa says she wanted out of the music industry because she wasn’t being authentic to her classically-trained self. Now I’m picturing I Wanna Be Bad sung opera-style. Thank you for that, Willa.
Since then, Willa acted a little – she played Anna Nicole Smith in The Anna Nicole Smith Story – but she sort of disappeared. Willa tells Billboard she has thought about coming back. But does anyone still care about Willa Ford? Um, rude – Willa totally has a huge fan base.
“I’m so grateful. So many of them are my loving gays – they’re my ride or dies. I’ve had so many guys be like, ‘Listen, I figured out I was gay because I realized from your music videos I didn’t want to screw you – I wanted to be you.’ I have thought about coming back, and I know who my community was and who would embrace me. When I look at Kylie Minogue, she did [her comeback] really right. She did Loco-Motion, she went away for 20 years – which is almost how long I’ve gone away.”
Nobody tell Willa Ford that that’s not what Kylie did, okay? She’s got a dream of a comeback, and I don’t have the heart to crush it.
It’s a true shame that bad timing robbed Willa Ford of her own Slave 4 U/Dirrty era. But if that second album doesn’t seem likely, she’s got other comeback options. Willa says she’s spent the past few years as an interior designer. Are the producers of the new Trading Spaces still looking for designers? Think about it – if I Wanna Be Bad is what Willa can do with music, imagine what she could do with a couple hundred bucks, limited design supplies, and a room.
Harrison Ford is a notoriously private actor, but when it comes to his relationship with Calista Flockhart, he’s actually kind of a softie. After meeting at the 2002 Golden Globes, the two started dating, and Harrison became a father figure for her adopted son, Liam. Like a true romantic, the Star Wars actor popped the question over Valentine’s Day weekend in 2009, and they tied the knot a year later in Santa Fe, NM. While they don’t usually indulge the press about their romance, they have shared a number of sweet moments together on the red carpet. See some of their best appearances below.
Here’s our random athlete vehicle find of the weekend: the pink 1968 Ford Mustang above formerly owned by The Stormin’ Mormon, Shawn Bradley, is on eBay with a BIN price of $ 39,995.
Now before you laugh your ass off at the thought of 7’6″ Shawn driving around in a pink convertible, the owner notes that Shawn had this baby custom made for his hot wife Annette back in the day — details from the eBay listing:
1968 Mustang Factory C code V8 convertible fully restored with less than 10,000 miles since completed! Formerly owned by NBA Super Star Shawn Bradley built for his wife! Restoration completed in 2012 with over 50k in receipts that go with the car!
