Harrison Ford got a colonoscopy to the ‘Indiana Jones’ theme song: ‘Follows me everywhere’

He just can’t put it in his rearview mirror …

Harrison Ford revealed that he can’t escape the music of John Williams, who scored Ford’s “Indiana Jones” and “Star Wars” movies — even during a certain delicate medical procedure.

“As I often remind John, his music follows me everywhere I go — literally,” Ford, 81, said in a Variety profile of the “Indiana Jones” theme song.

“When I had my last colonoscopy, they were playing it on the operating room speakers.”

Ford, who’s a famous curmudgeon, also said that his admiration for Williams’ music extends beyond the movies on which they’re both associated. He said he sometimes goes to the recording studio to watch Williams as he conducts his lush scores.

“It’s a delight to see him work with the orchestra,” Ford told Variety. “Just the pleasure of being able to sit in a room and process the remarkable attention that each beat of the music gets.”

He added: “And [the musicians’] respect for him and his respect for them is just so much fun to watch.”

Williams, 92, has snared 54 Oscar nominations — the most among any living person and non-producer — and is the oldest person to be nominated for an Academy Award for Best Original Score for “Indiana Jones and the Dial of Destiny” (starring Ford, Phoebe Waller-Bridge, Antonio Banderas and John Rhys-Davies).

He’s won five Oscars over his long, distinguished career, which includes composing the scores for Steven Spielberg’s “E.T.,” “Jurassic Park,” “Schindler’s List,” “Close Encounters of the Third Kind” and “Jaws.”

He’s also scored “Fiddler on the Roof” (for which he won an Oscar), “JFK,” the first three “Harry Potter” movies, “Superman” and so many more.

He also created the score for Ford’s 1995 movie “Sabrina.”

Ford, who isn’t one to be generous with praise, currently stars in two TV series, the “Yellowstone” prequel series “1923” on Paramount+ and “Shrinking” on Apple TV+.

He’s been married to Calista Flockhart, 59, since 2010.

Ford co-stars with his “Mosquito Coast” co-star Helen Mirren on “1923” — which will return for its second season — and with Jason Segel on the dark comedy “Shrinking,” which will also return for a second season.

Premiere dates of both series have not yet been announced.

Both Ford and Segel, 44, received Emmy nominations for “Shrinking,” in which Segel plays grieving therapist Jimmie Laird — who’s estranged from his 17-year-old daughter — and Ford his friend/mentor, fellow therapist Paul Rhoades, who’s been diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease.
