Seven months after he crashed his plane, Harrison Ford is finally speaking (and even joking!) about that fateful day, although he doesn't remember much of it.
"This was not a movie," he told Jimmy Kimmel on Oct. 29.
In March, Ford crashed his WWII vintage plane on a California golf course. He was hospitalized for nearly a month. He suffered a large laceration across his head, a broken ankle and pelvis.
"I remember some of it. I remember the engine stopping. I remember that part very well," he said. "And then I remember telling the tower what I was going to do, and then I remember their suggestion."
"Their suggestion," he said, "was that I take the normal route to land and I knew I wasn't going to do that, so I said no. And that's the last thing I remember until five days afterwards actually."
Although he doesn't really remember his descent or the actual impact, he was not unconscious.
The amount of general anesthesia he received induced "retrograde amnesia" -- a condition where memory before an injury is erased.
Oddly, Harrison was flying three months later.
