Harrison Ford Lets Curse Slip on Jimmy Kimmel Live

Actor Harrison Ford got bleeped on TV on Wednesday as he let the ‘f’ word slip while talking about his experience on the baseball mound at Dodgers Stadium in Los Angeles on Monday.

The movie star tossed the ceremonial first pitch on the hallowed turf as part of the Dodgers’ tribute night to sporting hero Jackie Robinson. Ford, who stars as the club’s late general manager Branch Rickey in the new Robinson biopic 42, admits he was inundated with advice from friends after they learned he would be taking to the mound.

The Star Wars star’s effort wasn’t great – but he admits he refused to take heed of the advice he was offered, telling late-night chat show host Jimmy Kimmel, “I got a lot of conflicting advice from all kinds of people that pretended to know how you throw out the first ball.

“A lot of people said, ‘Don’t go to the mound because it’s kind of long… and you might…’ and I thought, ‘F**k that’.”

Realizing he had uttered a swear work on national TV, the actor paused and covered his mouth with his hand.

Ford then revealed he did practice in his back yard, adding, “We went 62-and-a-half feet in my back yard and my son, who is 12, caught and we talked about it a lot because I didn’t want to embarrass him; he’s a baseball player. And I’ve got a 47-year-old son, who pitched for USC and he told me what he thought I ought to do.”

Harrison Ford Says He Owes His Career to Restroom Incident

Veteran actor Harrison Ford has said he owes his movie career to a fortuitous restroom break at Columbia Pictures more than four decades ago.

The Indiana Jones star was leaving the building after a less-than stellar audition with a top casting director when he stopped to relieve himself, and he still believes what happened next was a stroke of luck that propelled his film fortunes.

As he left the restroom, he bumped into the director’s assistant.

He recalls, “I don’t think that assistant would have run that much farther to get me. But he found me, and I left Columbia that day with a seven-year contract… I’ve been lucky.”

Doctor Who Matt Smith Spike TV’s 2011 Scream Awards Arrivals

Matt Smith has scooped the Best Science Fiction Actor award for his role as the 11th Doctor in the 2011 Scream Awards.
Smith managed to fight off fierce competition from big Hollywood names including Daniel Craig (Cowboys & Aliens), Chris Evans (Captain America: The First Avenger), Harrison Ford (Cowboys & Aliens) and Jake Gyllenhaal (Source Code). No mean feat, especially considering it was an American awards show.
Karen Gillan was nominated for Best Science Fiction Actress, but lost out to Milla Jovovich for her turn in zombie stinker, Resident Evil: Afterlife.
Doctor Who was also up for Best TV Show, but Game of Thrones took it in the end.
Still, congrats to Matt Smith for taking home one!
