Harrison Ford goes awol on Chewbacca after the Wookie turns up on Jimmy Kimmel Live.
Harrison Ford was the big star on Jimmy Kimmel Live last night (April 17) and was there to discuss his latest hit movie, 42, and as far as he knew/hoped that was everything he'd be talking about. Of course, things aren't that simple on Kimmel's show and the host couldn’t help himself when it came to asking the 70-year-old actor about his most famous project, Star Wars, and more specifically the hotly anticipated reboot of the Star Wars movie franchise.
The noted Star Wars hater that he is, Ford unfortunately declined to answer Kimmel's questions about J.J. Abram's new Star Wars vision, so Kimmel proposed that he open the floor up to the audience to ask some questions. Ever the professional, the veteran star agreed to answer questions from the audience but only on the condition that no-one brings up Star Wars. Things began to get awkward as fans dressed as Luke Skywalker and Princess Leia stepped up to the mic and quickly had to rethink their questions, however one audience member wasn't so quick to change the record, Harrison's furry former co-pilot of the Millenium Falcon, Chewbacca.
Immediately Ford saw red, and blasted the Wookie for some past discrepancies that took place in the back of the famed space cruiser. “You son of a b**ch, what do you want?” Ford yelled at Chewy from the stage. “You’d like that, wouldn’t you? Always trying to blame me. You’re the one who couldn’t keep it in your furry pants!”
Ever the mediator in such struggles, Kimmel tried to root out the cause of the former duo’s falling-out, but all Ford had to say was, “He knows what he did. She was my wife, you Wookie sack of s**t!” And without further ado, Ford stormed out of the studio in a huff, but not without leaving one last remark for his fury former partner; “And you, I’ll see you in hell!”
