Harrison Ford was allegedly killing himself in the gym with extreme workouts, according to a tabloid.
Harrison Ford is one of the actors who has been in the industry for decades. However, one outlet claimed that he was working out extremely as if he was trying to prove something. Gossip Cop examined the report, and here’s what it found out.
Harrison Ford extreme workouts taking a toll on his health
National Enquirer published a report a year ago claiming that Harrison Ford was working out extremely that it took a toll on his health. His friends were allegedly worried because it was tough for them to see him like that.
The outlet quoted a bogus insider claiming that Ford was like a “struggling actor hungry for his big break.” The tipster went on and claimed he was “killing himself.”
“Apart from the fat paycheck he’ll be earning, you have to wonder what he’s trying to prove,” the insider added.
Gossip Cop looked into the story, which Harrison Ford’s spokesperson denied at the time. According to his rep, the story was “highly incorrect.”
A year later, the rumor-debunking site found out that the report was just that – it was bogus. He opened up about his health and diet earlier this year, and he admitted to working out and eating a clean diet. However, in contrast to the report, he wasn’t killing himself.
Ford said he just committed himself to healthy eating and working out.
“I just decided I was tired of eating meat,” he told Ellen DeGeneres as quoted by GQ. “And I know it’s not really good for the planet and it’s not really good for me.”
“I’m healthy, I enjoy being active and fit. I’m aware of keeping my old (butt) in shape.”
Ford’s interview with Ellen revisited
In February, Harrison Ford appeared on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, where he opened up about his clean diet and healthier lifestyle. The host complimented Ford because he really looked good.
The actor jokingly asked Ellen DeGeneres if he looked bad before. He then explained that he plays tennis and rides his bike. Aside from these two activities, he is doing “practically nothing” aside from eating clean.
For his diet, he only eats vegetables and fish. He no longer eats dairy or meat. DeGeneres praised Ford for sticking to his new lifestyle because it’s hard to eat clean. DeGeneres then asked him if there was a particular reason that moved him for the health kick.
Ford said that he just grew tired of eating meat. And he knew that it wasn’t healthy for him and the planet.
