Harrison Ford‘s injury on the set of Star Wars: The Force Awakens was definitely not his fault.

Ford, 73, appeared on The Tonight Show Tuesday night, where he recalled breaking his leg while filming the upcoming Star Wars movie. And while the actor might have a good sense of humor about the incident, he set the record straight about exactly what happened.

“They closed the f—— door on me,” he told host Jimmy Fallon.

So who’s to blame for taking out Han Solo?

According to Ford, director J.J. Abrams is to blame.

“J.J. did it, as far as I know,” he said.

Fallon then brought out a Han Solo action figure to help demonstrate how the injury went down. But as Ford started bending the doll’s leg to show how he “dislocated the ankle forward” he accidentally ripped the entire foot off of the doll.

“Then they broke this leg,” Ford shouted as he playfully started pulling at the doll, eventually ripping his pants off.

And when Ford noticed the disrobed doll, he covered it with his hands.

“Let’s not talk about that accident,” he joked.
