Harrison Ford Talks Literally Breaking A Leg on The Set of Star Wars: The Force Awakens


Harrison Ford recently sat down with Jonathan Ross (via NME) and talked about how he broke his leg on the set of Star Wars: The Force Awakens… “We had a big budget this time. In the original film, the door – if there had been a door – would have been closed with a pulley and a stagehand just closing it. Now we had lots of money and technology and so they built a (expletive) great hydraulic door which closed at light speed and somebody said, ‘Ooh I wonder what this is?’ And the door came down and hit me on my left hip because I was turned to my right. And then it flung my left leg up and it dislocated my ankle, and as it drove me down to the floor, my legs slapped on the ramp up to the Millennium Falcon and broke both bones in my left leg.” When asked if he found out who was responsible, Ford replied: “I don’t know and I don’t want to know.”
