Harrison Ford has responded drolly to his recent praise from Donald Trump.
The billionaire-turned-politician, who is campaigning to run as Republican candidate for President, recently revealed that Ford’s portrayal of a fictional P.O.T.U.S. in 1997 action film Air Force One is his favourite screen portrayal of a President.
“My favourite was Harrison Ford on the plane,” Trump told the New York Times. “I love Harrison Ford – and not just because he rents my properties. He stood up for America.”
Asked for his thoughts on Trump’s comments during an interview on an Australian morning show earlier this week, Ford replied: “It’s a movie, Donald. It was a movie.”
“It’s not like this in real life,” Ford added. “But how would you know?” Watch a clip from the interview below.

Meanwhile, Trump has recently thanked Katie Hopkins – whom he referred to as a “respected columnist” – for backing his highly controversial suggestions for cracking down on terrorism, which include barring Muslims from entering the US. “The politicians of the UK should watch Katie Hopkins,” Trump wrote on Twitter. “Many people in the UK agree with me!”
