“Before Han Solo, there was a great carpenter named Harrison Ford,” Brazilian musician Sérgio Mendes wrote on Facebook. “Here he is, with his crew, the day he finished building my recording studio back in 1970.”
Ummm, yeah, we’re going to need a close-up look at that picture ASAP:
The now 73-year-old actor previously recalled how his carpentry work actually led him to Star Wars:A New Hope. “I was approached with the offer of a job, which at that point, was all I wanted to hear,” he recalled in a Reddit Ask Me Anything.
“I had helped George Lucas audition other actors for the principle parts, and with no expectation or indication that I might be considered for the part of Han, I was quite surprised when I was offered the part. My principle job at the time was carpentry, I had been under contract as an actor at Columbia and Universal. I had a house at the time I wanted to remodel, a bit of the wreck of a house. I'd invest money in tools but wouldn't have money for materials, so I realized this was another way of putting food on the table. And allowing me to pick and choose from the acting jobs that were being offered at the time.”
Sadly, Ford says he no longer has time to woodwork -- “It’s a skill that you have to really practice” -- but at least he’s still a mega babe.
