Lorraine Kelly has claimed Harrison Ford is a ‘very, very grumpy’ man on her podcast.
The ITV presenter hosts the What If? podcast alongside daughter Rosie, 27, where each week they explore what ifs with different celebrities.
In the latest episode, Lorraine and Rosie interviewed Alison Hammond, who rose to fame after competing on the third season of Big Brother in 2002, before going on to host ITV’s This Morning.
Lorraine, 62, described Alison as someone who was destined to be an entertainer due to her hilarious quips and bubbly personality which she showcases on TV.
Glasgow-born Lorraine praised Birmingham-born Alison for her laidback interview style.
She said: “You have completely changed the showbiz interview.
“There are no rules and I love that because you go in and you know what it’s like.
“All these big stars are bored t*tless – they are so bored because they’ve been asked the same question 150 times.
“But in you bounce and you see them smiling, it’s fantastic.”
Alison replied: “You know what I just go in and treat them the way I like to be treated.
“With Harrison Ford I thought I’d take in some whiskey and just see what happens”
But, Lorraine jumped in to say the Hollywood star is “very, very grumpy.”
Alison interviewed Harrison Ford alongside Ryan Gosling when they were promoting Blade Runner 2049 for This Morning in 2017, which has since become an iconic pop culture moment.
The interview started with a brutally honest answer from Alison when Ryan asked her if she was a fan of the original Blade Runner.
“Never seen it,” Alison admitted, cracking herself up.
Alison set the movie up by saying, “Bleak, dystopian, an absolute nightmare, to be honest with you, and that’s just my interviewing techniques. But let’s talk about the movie, Blade Runner 2049.”
“Cheer up,” Harrison said, clearly enjoying himself. “It’s a lovely day in London, let’s keep it that way. This is not the introduction we were promised.”
The banter continued throughout the entire interview, as Alison teased Ryan for the knitted jumper he wore resulting in the actor pretending to walk out.
In an interview with Hello! she opened up about her one regret from the interview: “I didn’t make much of an effort with my appearance that day and I can’t believe, of all the interviews that I’ve done in 16 years, that’s that the interview that went viral. You just never know do you!”
