There's no denying that Harrison Ford is one of the most admired and celebrated stars in Hollywood but the Star Wars and Indiana Jones actor doesn't have the best reputation when it comes to interviews. In fact, the 80-year-old screen icon has been notorious for not being the most gracious person during public appearances.

While a lot of folks have already gotten used to his demeanor, it has sparked speculation within the industry regarding the true status of his mental health, with many convinced he suffers from severe social anxiety, something that is quite hard to believe, especially for an actor of his caliber.

Well, it looks like there's zero truth to the rumors and if anything, that's just how Ford is. In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, the Hollywood legend finally set the record straight regarding the long-standing assumption about his mental health. According to Ford, he acts the way he does during interviews and public appearances because he isn't that fond of "boring situations".

He simply said: "I don’t have a social anxiety disorder. I have an abhorrence of boring situations."

Well, if that indeed is Harrison's main concern, wait until he does press work for his upcoming MCU film Captain America: New World Order. With the fans mega-invested in his current role in the billion-dollar franchise as General Thunderbolt Ross, the theories alone will either keep him entertained enough to pay attention or annoy the heck out of him. I guess we'll just have to wait and see.

Marvel Studios' fourth Captain America film is slated for release in theaters on May 3, 2024.
