The 75-year-old is known for being a bit cranky and often gives blunt answers in interviews.
Now in a new interview Ford was asked how he felt passing the Star Wars baton onto John Boyega, following Han Solo’s death in The Force Awakens.
Ford amusingly replied: “I don’t know that I thought of it that way at all.
“I was there to die. And I didn’t really give a rat’s ass who got my sword.”
This May sees the release of Solo: A Star Wars Story, a prequel spin-off with Alden Ehrenreich playing the younger version of Ford’s smuggler.
In a recent interview, Lucasfilm President Kathleen Kennedy revealed Ford’s advice to Alden.
She said: ““What he [Harrison Ford] did so beautifully for Alden was he talked a lot about what he remembered when he first read Star Wars, and what George had done with Han.
“Who the character was and the conversations he had for so many years with George about how that character developed.”
She added: “He gave Alden that kind of insight which was invaluable. There were several times in the course of making the movie where Alden would actually recount some of the things that Harrison had pointed out. I think that was really, really helpful to him.”
Solo: A Star Wars Story is released in UK cinemas on May 25, 2018.
