Mr. Ford is best known for his legendary role in the movie series, Indiana Jones. He played the lead character as a globe-trotting archeologist who never said no to adventure in his quests. Another torrent of worldwide fame came along when he starred as Han Solo in the Star Wars franchise. Now, it's time we hear the stories of true struggles from his personal encounters.
He was oppressed as a child
The star has been ruling the kingdom of Hollywood for almost four decades. Still, he has shared the bare minimum of his off-screen smart and canny personality. To unravel more, GQ Magazine held an exclusive interview with Mr. Ford. To paint the picture of his innermost attributes like endurance, perversity, playing the long game, a Zen resistance, and stoicism, he told a story from his childhood.
He recalled being bullied as a sixth grader. His school was built around slope and had a small hill leading down to soybean fields. Ford told:
So I was the new kid, and I was kind of short and geeky. I'd come up the hill, and then they pushed me down the hill, and I'd come up the hill, and if there was enough time they'd push me down the hill again.
Another celebrity who was bullied
The late classic heartthrob, Patrick Swayze, was mentioned to be bullied in his teenage days in his documentary. Reported, it was his dancing that made his mates make him feel less than man. Nonetheless, he strived to make his dreams come true and became an inspiration for many.
