The actor opened up the accidental hit, among other aspects of the film, during an interview with GQ, and he put most of the blame on Gosling. Ford called it "90 percent his fault," claiming just a small fraction of the responsibility for himself because, as he put it, "Ryan Gosling's face was where it should not have been."
"His job was to be out of the range of the punch," Ford told GQ. "My job was also to make sure that I pulled the punch."
The reason the particular swing landed, the Star Wars vet explained, is because they were moving and so was the camera. Most of the time, they managed to pull it off without any actual violence. In fact, Ford thinks Gosling should be glad he didn't get hit more.
"I threw about a hundred punches in the shooting of it, and I only hit him once," he said.
Ultimately, Ford did decide to make amends. He brought Gosling a bottle of scotch ... but he only gave him a single glass.
"I figured one drink would fix it," he said. "That was enough."
Fortunately, the two managed to film the movie mostly unscathed. We'll see them in "Blade Runner 2049" when it opens Oct. 6.
