'If I wasn't married...'
At the 2023 Awards Season Screening Series with The Wrap, Helen Mirren discussed her experience filming intimate scenes with Harrison Ford for the Yellowstone prequel show, 1923. The Queen star recalled feeling excited and gushed about Ford's humility and professionalism, despite his fame and success.
"I had to be in the bed with him, you know," Mirren shared about filming with Ford. "But I'm lying there and I'm thinking, 'I'm in bed with Harrison Ford.' I was so excited, I can't tell you. I had to pretend to be cool. Don't tell him. Promise me."
Mirren went on to praise Ford's character and work ethic, saying, "He's amazing. The stature he's held, as a major, humongous movie star, all that time, at the same time as somebody who doesn't love the limelight. He has this interior quality about him... Not remotely spoiled movie star at all. I genuinely love him. If I wasn't married..."
Harrison Ford finds Helen Mirren 'sexy'
Harrison Ford and Helen Mirren's mutual admiration was evident during a recent interview. Ford, who stars alongside Mirren in the Yellowstone prequel show, 1923, admitted that he finds the actress "still sexy" and that the prospect of working with her again was a major factor in his decision to sign on for the spinoff series. "She is still sexy," Ford affirmed. The pair previously acted together in the 1986 drama film, 'The Mosquito Coast', where Mirren famously lay on top of Ford in a scene that caused a stir among audiences. "It's been remarkable to watch her. There's a lot of physical action, and she just jumps right in and does stuff you don't imagine Helen Mirren would do... Dame Helen Mirren," Ford remarked about his co-star's performance in 1923.
During a separate appearance on The Late Show, a photo of Mirren lying on top of Ford in The Mosquito Coast was brought out, causing a commotion among the audience. When asked if he had ever made out with Mirren, Ford coyly smiled in response.
The second season of '1923' is under production right now with no official release date yet.
