    I just saw Harrison Ford showing emotion during a speech. He doesn't do that very often, he likes to keep his emotions private, actually I've never seen him this emotional in public. The hug says it all. He sincerly respects Mark. :)

    This reunion could have been SO GREAT in the new Star Wars movies. Something we’ll never get now.
    One of them throwing out one of the old lines like “Together again” or “How are we doing?” “Same as always.” “That bad, huh?”

    After watching, I Googled "Does Harrison Ford have dementia"... (many people would seem to agree that the 76 year old's speech and overall behavior the last few years has been quite odd)

    Harrison doesn’t seem to be a great public speaker. This holds true for a lot of actors. But one thing we can tell is he is trying very hard and you can feel the emotion coming from him.

    • KutWrite
      KutWrite Month ago

      Yeah. I had a complex reaction to it.
      He seemed so tired (or stoned), at a loss for words either through emotion or fatigue... or memories flooding back.
      Nice to see, no matter what his reasons or condition.

    Of all the films Harrison Ford made as a serious actor and artist ever perfecting his craft, the dismay in his voice is testament to the realization that he can never do anything publicly without facing throngs of adults in silly costumes reliving their collective childhood.

    He admits they haven't spent any time together recently, yrs... kinda awkward, he had to look at his notes/cards to remember what he wanted to say. If you know someone well, you do not need to have cards.
    Imagine working with someone 35+ yrs ago, then being asked to speak about him.

    In a culture that is often dominated by vitriolic has-beens like Robert De Niro, who deliver hateful diatribes to a public that has little interest in red-faced hysteria - upstanding and solid human beings like Hamil and Ford are welcome role models. Where De Niro (and others) will disfigure, defaced and taint their own life's mediocre work via childish acts and foolishness, the careers of the men featured in this post will stand as images to be remembered with honor. Well done and kudos.

    Of all that mumbling, probably the most profound words that could be squeezed from Ford were that 'Mark has forged and mastered his own destiny'. We may not have seen much of him after Star Wars but if you've ever watched a cartoon or played a video game in the 90's to present, you've most definitely heard him and has become the defining voice of many iconic characters. He's always been humbled by his fans never felt out of reach.

  • sleeperawaken36
    sleeperawaken36 Month ago

    Harrison doesnt really like to do a lot of public speaking. He likes acting, but not so much public speaking as himself... he's mostly pretty private... But when he does, he likes to be funny in his own way, with a dry humor, a bit of trolling, and tries to make it so people have no idea what he is going to say next. He's always kind of been that way.... But he is completely alert... The man is a pilot, flies air planes and helicopters, has even rescued a few people he came across while flying a helicopter around. I think public persona is largely an act to keep himself more private... Hence I really think if you knew him as a friend, and visited him at his house, he'd probably still mess with you, cause he likes doing that... But you'd also see him converse in a more regular way.

  • Retrova

    It's sad people feel the need to be disrespectful to him here. Harrison likely has an anxiety disorder so he struggles to find the words as he talks. I don't think he is stoned, senile or finding it hard to say nice things. He's just nervous under the pressure of giving a speech in front of a big crowd. Give him a break.

    This looks like a tortured speech, read off of notes, by a guy who is nice, but doesn't have a lot of praise to shower.
    Harrison may like Mark, but there's precious little before or since to offer up as great work.

    I keep having this experience of actors being kind of boring in real life. Same thing when I watch award ceremonies with Jack Nicholson. Even Sean Connery.
    I think it comes from watching them for so many years reacting perfectly in difficult situations with the perfect words that have been written for their characters and using elevated emotions. In contrast, they seem surprisingly dull in life.
    Not knocking them, grateful for the great stories and their professional skill. Just something I’m struck by.

      But Ityr is right, Mark may be a great guy but he is not on the same level as Harrison in terms of skills.
      Just look at their lives... they started from the same level, hell Mark was younger and played a lead!

      Because he's a very mediocre actor.
      He never did, before or after, anything meaningful on stage or screen. I'm sure he's a nice guy!
      But he just landed a plum role on an unexpected hit and made history. Happy for him!

  • Event Horizon Productions

    With the utmost reverence and respect, Harrison Ford's speech made me realize why more men go senile in old age than women.
    It stemmed from my awareness of my own struggles in society. I can see him pushing to find the absolute perfect words and structure to express his thoughts. As we lose our mental prowess in older and older age, as we depart from our mental prime, we are less able to achieve PERFECTION of expression. Thusly we take longer and longer to seek out perfection. And this dwindles into sayong nuthing; because we are ever seeking.
    So. As men in our twilight, we delve into a trap of internally pursuing deeper depths and more perfect perfection - which increasingly exceeds our physiological ability to do. And this appears outwardly to be a reduction of mental capacity. But in total it is merely due to our choice of ASPIRATIONS beyond ourselves, rather than our true abilities.
    We could remain; if we were not so inclined tp reach for more.

    Harrison Ford :-). What a gracious man and a successful actor :-). Harrison does sound fairly shy in some ways when he was making his speech at the Hollywood Walk of Fame and what a deeply modest person he is :-). Despite sounding fairly shy he appeared to be very friendly and nice and certainly said some really nice things about Mark Hamill and it's really nice to see Mark Hamill standing next to Harrison Ford at the event they attended together like friendly old buddies :-). Plus it's really good to see that Harrison Ford is still acting even though he's over 75 now and still looks similar to how he did when he starred in Indiana Jones and Star Wars :-). He still looks handsome despite he's getting on in age and still acting and a remarkable part of Hollywood as of 2018 :-). I hope Harrison Ford lasts with Hollywood for years and years and years from 2018 onwards because he is such a successful man :-). He seems to have more friendliness in himself than I though he really did because in some of his successful films he appeared to be really tough and strict when acting as some of his well reknowned roles Harrison Ford did but oh well :-). I hope we still have him for many more years and what a great video :-). Thanks for sharing :-).
    From Foxy :-).

    See now that's all we wanted to see in a new star wars movie. It would have been more exciting to see them together with the new cast. "then" give us a continuation of the new cast as they lose the old cast....it would have been epic if the scene in TLJ would have happened in the last film.
    They ruined Kylo IMO the sad story arc made his character feel so animated. he has no interest out side the new order. Even Vader had other interest out side of the Empire. His hate for sand people and revenge on all living Jedi. Kylo doesn't fight monsters or anything. He's never in any parole like the original characters...he's not adventurous. It's as though they didn't consider his life as a child...what lol, did he pop out of the princess a 20 year old!?! Even
    When he fought Snokes guards he never seem to be in any trouble. Also he never displayed anything that should have Luke fear him in the way he did. it was just a bad direction to take.
