As the leaked image below shows, Harrison Ford has still got what it takes to make whole galaxies swoon. And, considering the horrific plane crash he survived last year, the star is in fine form.
Appearing on the Jimmy Kimmel Live talkback show in the US, Ford had the host in stitches with a dry wit. He and the host were both dressed in Halloween costumes.

Kimmel, dressed as Princess Leia replied, “I’m your lover. You don’t remember me from the ’70s? We had quite a thing.”

Ford spoke about the moment the engine of the light plane he was flying failed: “I remember the engine stopping, I remember that part very well, he said.”

Ford refused to be cajoled into saying anything about the new Star Wars film in which he reprises his role as Hans Solo but maintained a whacky banter in his strange costume.
