Harrison Ford's drunken piercing

Harrison Ford was inspired to have his ears pierced after a drunken lunch.

The 'Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull' actor was out with friends, who were both sporting earrings, when he decided he wanted to follow their trend.

Harrison, who took the plunge around 10 years ago, said: "A semi-drunken lunch with Ed Bradley and Jimmy Buffett, who were both wearing earrings, is what inspired me to get pierced. After lunch, I walked down Madison Avenue until I found the first jewellery store that pierced ears."

Harrison has also spoken again about rumours Sir Sean Connery turned down the chance to play Indiana Jones' father in the new film.

He said: "I'm old enough to play my own father in this one. Sean's only 12 years older than I am. In 'Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade' I had to play the character so much younger than I actually was in order to make it work. It was really a strain.

"I missed Sean, because he was fun, he was a hoot. Great comic chops. But it's a different movie."
