[We're back with another edition of G.W.W.E. (Guys We Wanna Eff)! This week, join me in drooling over one sexy seasoned sweetie, Harrison Ford.]
As far as men go, few come as manly as Harrison Ford. The legendary actor has starred in two epic sagas (as Hans Solo in Star Wars and as the title character in the Indiana Jones series), playing some of cinema’s favorite alpha-male roles with grit and wry humor. I’ve seen him stare death in the face more times than I can count, and his iron resolve is just about the sexiest effing thing in the galaxy.
But while Harrison has been a bona-fide movie star for over 30 years, no film of his could ever compare to his gold-standard portrayal of the Commander in Chief in Air Force One. If I had to estimate, I would say I’ve seen AFO over 20 times. The film has it all: cheesy dialogue, crazed Russian political zealots, fighter jets, and my boy Harrison grunting, “Get off my plane!” while choking a villain to death (auto-erotic asphyxiation, anyone?). I honestly began dating someone in high school because we both loved Air Force One. Seriously. (The boyfriend and I parted ways, but I still love ol’ Harry.)
Harrison’s newest flick (opening today in theaters) is Crossing Over, about immigrants in Los Angeles, and co-stars Ray Liotta and Ashley Judd. Something tells me that I can expect to see my favorite silver fox’s steely gaze make me weak in the knees, regardless of what happens in the film. The man practically has a contract clause that stipulates he must play the strongest, most virile character in any film (and at age 66, he’s the only actor I know of who can pull it off with aplomb).
Speaking of contracts, Harrison hasn’t signed marriage papers with longtime girlfriend Calista Flockhart. Though the 1998 People Magazine Sexiest Man Alive has been twice wedded before, he hasn’t taken the plunge this time around. Perhaps he knows there’s a sprightly young gal like myself ready to eff? I can dream!
