After the GOP front-runner praised the actor’s turn as a terrorist-fighting president in 1997’s Air Force One during a recent interview with The New York Times, Ford fired back with the perfect response.
“Donald, it was a movie. It’s not like this in real life. But how would you know?” the actor said in an interview with Studio 10 during an Australian press tour for his new film, Star Wars: The Force Awakens.

Ford didn’t stop there, going on to dismiss Trump’s presidential campaign with a simple but to-the-point, “Not so much, no.”
Trump previously told The New York Times that he liked movies featuring heroic president characters.
“My favorite was Harrison Ford on the plane,” he said of Air Force One. “I love Harrison Ford – and not just because he rents my properties. He stood up for America.”
Ford, who the paper described as “a lifelong Democrat,” declined to comment at the time. Thankfully he changed his mind.
