LOS ANGELES, Calif. -- Harrison Ford has played arguably some of the greatest characters in the history of film.
Han Solo.Jack Ryan.Indiana Jones.
But on a sunny afternoon in Los Angeles, Access Hollywood was with the legendary actor as he sat down for an experience which left Harrison feeling a bit “naked.”
So why did this icon of the big screen sit down to have his chest waxed as the Access cameras rolled?
Harrison invited Access Hollywood and our guest correspondent Mel B exclusively along as he embarked on a personal project to promote going green.
And just how did Harrison, who is the vice chair of the global environment group Conservation International, want to get his message across?
By waxing his chest, of course.
In an effort to showcase the pain involved in deforestation, Harrison willingly subject himself to the painful process of stripping his chest of all its follicles.
Having worked with CI for 15 years, it was Harrison’s hope that his trip to the salon might just shock people into thinking “green.”
CI operates in more than 40 countries to combat climate change, protect species, and to work with and assist local and indigenous communities
