When Harrison Ford punched Ryan Gosling in the face

Los Angeles, Dec 13 (IANS) Actor Ryan Gosling has revealed that he was punched in the face by Harrison Ford while they were filming a fight scene for “Blade Runner 2049”.

Gosling got surprised when an interviewer asked him about the on-set incident, reports aceshowbiz.com.

“How did you hear that? Yeah, (Ford) did (punch me in the face),” Gosling told GQ for its January issue, reports aceshowbiz.com.

“It was kind of, you know, a rite of passage. We were just doing a fight scene and, you know, it just happened. But what was funny was, when it was over, they brought ice for my face, and Harrison pushed me out of the way and stuck his fist in the ice,” he added.

The “La La Land” actor further shared: “I asked him the other day where he got his sense of humour from — was it from his mother or his father? He said, ‘Sears.’ And he didn’t have much time to shop around so he just had to grab one and get out.”

Asked if he was hurt, Gosling said: “You know…(Ford) is tough. He’s been an inspiration to everyone-everyone is doing push-ups now and taking an interest in their fitness. As soon as it happened, the director came up to me and said, ‘Look at it this way-you just got hit by Indiana Jones.’ ”
