Harrison Ford Knows When to Shut Up

[Gallery not found]

Harrison Ford doesn’t discuss politics in public. He thinks it’s rude to thrust one’s personal political opinions on the public, so he does not answer those questions during interviews.

I grew up in the mid-west. You don’t ask what a person’s religion is, you don’t ask what their politics are, you don’t ask how much money they make and I pretty much still have that attitude about it. It’s none of anybody’s business and I don’t advantage anyone by telling them what my personal politics are… The arguments are much too subtle to be entered in that way, to my mind. There are things that I think are happening in the world that are egregious mistakes but I’m only operating out of my own box and I don’t have any expertise. I’m a voter… I have one vote, that’s all I should have.”

How refreshing. An actor who prefers to shut up and act. I can only hope whatever Harrison Ford has is contagious. I hope it doesn’t spread to my sexy pool boy, though. I don’t want him to start cleaning my pool every time he comes over. I need him to keep walking my dog. What? Where did you think I was going with that?
