We’ve heard the rumors and now we get to see it: the exact moment when Harrison Ford punched Ryan Gosling in the face on the set of “Blade Runner 2049.”
Twitter user Toucan Dan posted the still, which has since gone viral.

“I misread the script,” Harrison joked, before explaining how the punch actually occurred: There were strobe lights and Ford performed a punch, hoping to make it look real but not make contact, and, well, we know what happened next.
“I should be lucky I didn’t get hit more,” Gosling said. “It’s not just the punch though. A Harrison Ford punch is a different animal altogether.”
The faces though are what really make the image. Gosling is making the face cartoon characters make when they’ve been punched and Ford is somewhere between shock and cringe.
“Is that the face of regret or the face of ‘I really hurt my hand?'” Norton asked.
Ford explained, “That’s the face of, ‘Oh sh–, I’m in deep doo-doo.'”
Gosling originally revealed the now famous punch during a GQ interview published last year, calling it a “rite of passage.”
“We were just doing a fight scene and, you know, it just happened. But what was funny was, when it was over, they brought ice for my face, and Harrison pushed me out of the way and stuck his fist in the ice.”
“Blade Runner 2049” opens in theaters this Friday.
