Harrison Ford is eating clean, no meat or dairy, just ‘vegetables & fish’

Harrison Ford attendsThe premiere of "The Call Of The Wild" in Los Angeles

If you see a lot of Harrison Ford headlines this week, it’s because he’s promoting that – uh – weird-looking version of The Call of the Wild. Even though I’m a lady, I love that book and seeing this bad-CGI doggo in the trailer is actually quite painful. Critics say that CGI Doggo is quite bad and Cats-like too. Harrison plays Old Man Thornton in the movie, and my guess is that the book was one of Ford’s favorites growing up as well, and that’s why he signed up for the movie. But… yeah, it does not look good. Which is probably why Harrison has been avoiding the subject of the film while he’s promoting the film. Instead, he’s been talking about himself:

Harrison Ford is opening up about his secret to staying healthy. While appearing on The Ellen DeGeneres Show Tuesday, the host complimented Ford on his chiseled look, asking if he had made any changes to his diet.

“You look good, you look really good,” DeGeneres told the actor.

“What did I look like before?” he laughed.

“Really bad, the difference is amazing,” the television personality, 62, joked. She asked, “You changed your diet or something I read, what are you doing now?”

The Star Wars actor, 77, explained that in addition to biking and playing tennis, he is doing “practically nothing” else with his diet besides eating “vegetables and fish.”

“That’s good, that’s very healthy for you,” DeGeneres replied.

He added that there is “no dairy” or meat in his diet. “What was the other thing?” Ford tried to remember as audience members called out possible options including carbs or gluten. “Oh I don’t know,” he quipped. “But it’s really boring.”

“The fact that you can stick to it is pretty impressive because it is hard to eat really, really clean,” DeGeneres commended Ford before asking if there was a specific reason he went on the health kick. “I just decided I was tired of eating meat, and I know it’s not really good for the planet and not good for me,” he explained.

Ford has always been environmentally-conscious and it doesn’t surprise me that he’s given up meat for (halfway) environmental reasons. And you know what? He does look good. He’s 77 and spry as hell. You know what else interests me? Harrison has finally given up that silly earring he was wearing for years. No meat, no dairy and no earring. I could get behind this version of Harrison Ford.

Here’s Ellen’s interview with Harrison:

    The CGI dog confuses the hell out of me! Is there no real dog at all?! Of course a CGI dog for anything dangerous or uncomfortable is a great idea. But no real one for scenes where they’re just hanging out? Scenes where they’re just having a snack or a nap or something? That’s…bizarre.

    Harrison, I love you….please don’t do Indian Jones 5. Please. He’s with Marion, found his kid. All good. Stop, please.

      I feel Kingdom of the Crystal Skull shouldn’t have even been made period. It just didn’t work for me. While all of the movies were fantasical and outlandish, what KotCS tried to do just didn’t resonate with me. The original trilogy was perfect and ended perfectly with Indy reconciling with his father and literally riding off into the sunset. A far more poignant ending. I’ve loved the original series since I was a child. I like to pretend the last film doesn’t exist.

      That being said, I am open to more IJ films. However, I don’t want to see a near 80 Harrison Ford playing him unless it’s an older Indy recalling an earlier period of his life and a younger actor takes over. Harrison us old man goals to me. He looks great and is incredibly spry for a 78 year old. But he’s still 78 and that comes with certain physical limitations. I want to remember Indy a certain way.

        I’m another one that feels that IJ ended with the Sean Connery one. Sorry #4 does not exist even though I’m a fan of Marion.

    I never minded the earring lol.

    Ford in Working Girl, ah so cute. He and Melanie Griffith made a great onscreen couple.

  4. Mrs. Peel says:

    I would be so miserable knowing I’d never have pizza or bacon again.

  5. holly hobby says:

    Thank god he gave up that stupid earring! On the other hand, if they ever made a movie about the current administration, Ford can play Robert Mueller.
