If you're one of those concerned for his health, we'll stop you right there, and rest assured, Ford is doing just fine and is as grouchy as ever. It turns out it's all about the actor's response to an interviewer who asked him about a Force ghost in February 2020. In the interview with USA Today to promote his movie 'The Call of the Wild', Ford replied, "A Force ghost? I don't know what a Force ghost is." He continued, "Don't tell anyone," adding, "I'm not talking loud enough for your recorder. I have no (expletive) idea what a Force ghost is. And I don't care!" He also mistook Kryptonite (from Superman) for Carbonite.

For those who need an answer to the question posed to Ford, the Force ghost is the soul and essence of a deceased Force-sensitive, who denied the will of the Force upon death, yet was able to interact with the living. It also describes those who committed a final act of selflessness that led to their death and had come to terms with it. In previous 'Star Wars' films, characters such as Luke Skywalker, Anakin Skywalker, Obi-Wan Kenobi, and many others have appeared as Force ghosts.
Those who have followed Harrison Ford and his stance with the 'Star Wars' franchise over the years will probably already know he's not particularly fascinated with all of its lore or mythology. About six years ago, Ford also told Reddit he didn't care when asked whether or not his 'Star Wars' character Han Solo shot first in the long-debated Greedo scene in the original film.
Meanwhile, fans are now praising Ford for his response. One fan says, "Y’all gotta leave Harrison Ford alone, how many times does he have to say he doesn’t give a f*ck." Another fan writes, "I can't help but chuckle every time a new article about Harrison Ford on Han Solo surfaces and folks are surprised that Ford gives 0 f*cks about Solo lmao."
