Harrison Ford says Helen Mirren 'still sexy' 38 years after The Mosquito Coast

Mirren 'still sexy' at 77

Harrison Ford says Helen Mirren is "still sexy" 38 years after they starred together in 'The Mosquito Coast'.

The 80-year-old actor has reunited with the 77-year-old legend in new series '1923' and he admitted working with her again was a "big draw" behind him joining the 'Yellowstone' spin-off show.

He opened up on 'The Late Show With Stephen Colbert' after the host showed viewers a steamy photo of Harrison and Helen together in the 1986 drama and quipped: "Sexy and still sexy."

Harrison added: "She is still sexy."

The chat show host couldn't resist cheekily asking if he'd ever "made out" with the actress, but he only got a smile in response.

Stephen explained: 'I ask because I have made out with Helen Mirren. First time she came on here, first time I ever met her, she came on and plants a wet one on me. Really grabs my head. I was paralytic for about five minutes.

Harrison burst out laughing and joked: "She's out there."

The 'Indiana Jones' and 'Star Wars' icon heaped praise on her talents as an actress, pointing out the way she will fully commit to a role.

He said: "It's been remarkable to watch her. There's a lot of physical action and she just jumps right in and does stuff you don't imagine Helen Mirren would do...Dame Helen Mirren."

Late last year, the Oscar-winning actress opened up on her first experiences working with Harrison on 'The Mosquito Coast' and admitted she was "very intimated" because he'd already made a name for himself as a performer at that point.

She said: "When we first worked together, he was a huge movie star and I was like nobody. I was very intimidated, very intimidated."

But the she "learned a lot" from working with Harrison on the film and still carries some of his lessons with her now.

She continued: "But also, I learned a lot from him because I hadn't done a lot. I'd done a lot of theater at that point, I hadn't done a lot of movies. So I watched him, and he taught me a great deal about film acting that to this day [that] I'm still using."
