"They say never meet your heroes," Gosling says in a new interview with Entertainment Weekly. "But the addendum to that is: unless they're Harrison Ford."
Ford didn't start shooting his Blade Runner scenes until about month into production, which Gosling says gave him time to prepare for their first meeting, "hoping that we were making something that would be satisfying to him."
But when the moment finally came, it was nothing but rainbows and butterflies between the two.
"It was just unmistakably him -- even in silhouette, you couldn't miss it -- and it was just such a relief," Gosling shares. "He immediately put everyone at ease and went right to work."
Right to work Gosling and Ford went, which sometimes included filming in cold locations… and jumping in hot tubs to warm up.
"Talking to Harrison fully clothed in a hot tub is an experience I never thought I'd have," Gosling reveals, laughing. "If you had told me a few years ago, I wouldn't have believed it."
