Thirteen times Harrison Ford was the foxiest man alive

Bow in the presence of greatness.

The second Star Wars: Episode VII trailer debuted last week! And while, like every other sentient being, I am of course excited for the film, the biggest takeaway I got from the trailer was the realization that even though Harrison Ford is approximately 157 years old, he’s still probably the most hot damn foxy man on the planet.

Here’s a comprehensive list of thirteen times Harrison Ford showed us that he was the foxiest man alive.

When he was born and his parents intuitively knew to give him a movie star ready name.


Some actors change their names to make them more sparkle-worthy, but Harrison Ford was born with his. He shares the same name as the silent film actor Harrison Ford, who also has a star on the Walk of Fame.

When he became a self-taught professional carpenter to support his family.


Acting gigs don’t always pay the bills for a young actor, so Harrison Ford worked as a carpenter as well. He would go to auditions straight from work still dressed in his carpentry clothes to remind casting directors that he always had other choices in his life. See, folks? Harrison Ford doesn’t need your approval! Harrison Ford is a tradesman! With real-life skills that would actually be useful in the aftermath of a zombie apocalypse! He knows that real men work with their hands — like Jesus, and Bob the Builder.
