Harrison Ford had no movie heroes

HARRISON Ford's "dirty little secret" is his lack of interest in movies when he was younger.

The 'Star Wars: The Force Awakens' star admits he never had any cinematic "idols" when he was growing up and rarely got excited by seeing films.

He said: "The dirty little secret is I never went to the movies. I didn't have any idols. I didn't identify with heroes or movie stars.

"I think people find this offensive but it's just the facts.

"When I went to the movies as a kid, we went to the Saturday matinees. My parents took me to see 'Bambi' and it scared the s**t out of me. I didn't have heroes."

And the 73-year-old star only got into acting when he took a drama course because he thought it would be an easy way to get a good grade after struggling in his other classes.

He admitted to GQ magazine: "I was a philosophy and English major and I was not a good student. Not an attentive student.

"I was looking for something I could get a good grade in and I saw a description in the catalogue for 'drama' and I presumed we'd be studying plays."
