A couple of weeks ago, Harrison Ford revealed an amusing anecdote about “accidentally” punching Ryan Gosling in the face while filming ‘Blade Runner 2049’.

“His job was to be out of the range of the punch. My job was also to make sure that I pulled the punch. But we were moving, and the camera was moving, so I had to be aware of the angle to the camera to make the punch look good. You know, I threw about a hundred punches in the shooting of it, and I only hit him once… I mean, I suppose it’s 90 percent his fault.”

Ford also revealed that he made it up to Gosling by sharing some scotch with him.  But just one glass.

The story has made the rounds and when the pair appeared on ‘The Graham Norton Show’ (aired in the U.S. on BBC America) the jovial host coaxed a few more details from them and even pulled up an image which seems to have captured the minute after the infamous punch connected.
