Harrison Ford Won’t Make Eye Contact With This Co-Star, Reports Say – Best Life
Do you remember the movie Hollywood homicide? It would be a surprise if you did. The 2003 buddy cop comedy isn’t one of the Harrison Fordthe most popular projects of his long career. But, he has a place in Hollywood history thanks to the feud that supposedly happened on set. Apparently Ford and his co-star Josh Hartnet got along so badly that Ford refused to look the other actor in the eye.
Unlike other on-set feuds, Ford and Hartnett’s isn’t particularly well-documented, and there hasn’t been a back-and-forth on social media like there is between some stars who hurt themselves today. That said, Hartnett confirmed upon the film’s release that her relationship with her co-star was strained. Read on to know more about this drama film.

In Hollywood homicide, Ford and Hartnett play two detectives investigating the murders of a rap group. Ford’s character was a long-working cop, while Hartnett’s greener officer was more interested in becoming an actor.
Their characters were already meant to go head-to-head, but it seems the cast’s behind-the-scenes issues have translated to the screen as well. The Washington Postit’s film critic reads: “The two have so little chemistry, even for a movie about partners who don’t have chemistry…that every scene between them, and that’s almost every scene, feels like a test of screen or, at best, to a rehearsal.”
Reportedly, Hartnett and Ford couldn’t look each other in the eye, nor did they get along while promoting the film. Yahoo! The UK reports that Ford would call Hartnett “punk”and Hartnett called Ford and “old fart,” though those quotes aren’t confirmed by any of the stars.

According to Contact Music, in 2003, Harnett said to work with Ford, “There were times when we would find ourselves sitting in the car when we were supposed to make a scene and neither of us would say anything for about an hour.” He added that he thinks their dynamic has improved by the end of production. “I think there was a testing period that I had to endure. But we finally got along towards the end,” he said.
In what was perhaps proof of this, the two presented together at the 2003 MTV Movie Awards and joked on stage.
Ford is a beloved actor but also has a reputation for being a bit prickly, especially through interviews in which it can be quite brutal. So it’s not too shocking that he’s seemingly so open about his dislike of a co-star. But, with the film set almost 20 years ago, certainly don’t expect either he or Hartnett to share anything more about their working relationship now.
However, if you want to see Ford deal with a feud head on – and show off his sense of humor – here it is. settle things with Chewbacca.
