Harrison Ford isn’t fazed by film critics’ reaction to Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull–insisting he won’t read reviews of the film.
The veteran actor attended the premiere of the Indiana Jones franchise’s fourth installment at the Cannes International Film Festival in France on Sunday, and was mostly praised for his rejuvenated role–reportedly garnering a standing ovation from critics who were invited to the exclusive screening.
But the 65-year-old–who has faced criticism for taking on the film project in his advancing years–admits critics’ reactions don’t interest him, because he never allows himself to read their opinions.
And Ford refutes suggestions he avoids reviews to ignore negative criticisms of his on-screen work, stating he wouldn’t want to read positive reviews either.
He says, “I suppose it would be interesting, but I don’t read reviews. I don’t want to believe the bad stuff and I don’t want to believe the good stuff. It doesn’t really matter.”
