When Ellen Degeneres sat down with Harrison Ford in February of 2020, the talk show host was eager to learn about Ford's secrets for looking so amazing in his 70s.

"You look good. You look really good," said Degeneres, followed by a roaring applause from the studio audience. Ford joked with Degeneres, saying, "Well thank you. What did I look like before?"

When she asked him what he's been doing to stay healthy, Ford replied, "[I'm doing] practically nothing. I eat vegetables and fish. It's really boring." He then continues on to tell Degeneres that he has given up dairy and meat.

When asked why he decided to make these dietary choices, Ford replied with, "I just decided I was tired of eating meat…and I know it's not really good for the planet…and it's not really good for me."

Fans of Ford may not be surprised by this personal decision of his, especially if they're aware of his passion for the environment. In fact, Ford spoke to the UN in 2019 on the importance of caring for our planet.

"There's a picture of you on a bike…look at your arms." Degeneres reveals a picture to her audience of Ford riding a bike, to which she says, "What's happening here? Do you work out like crazy?"

"No, I don't work out like crazy. I work out a bit. I mean I ride bikes and I play tennis," says Ford.
