Ford doesn't like the movies

Harrison FordHarrison Ford has admitted he is not a big movies fan and doesn't like going to the movies much.

But the one thing he is totally annoyed about is printed lies about his private life.

The Hollywood star told Reuters he doesn't answer questions about his private life, adding, 'The celebrity press that abounds in every country around the world today is not truthful about people's private lives. But it's not my job to sit here and correct what's incorrect. That just gives it a second life. So I leave it alone and concentrate on the mission I'm here on.'

Ford's recent films, Hollywood Homicide and K-19: The Widowmaker were box-office duds. He claims the shooting for the fourth sequel to the Indian Jones series, of which he is a part, will start next year.

The film will be directed by Steven Spielberg.

Ford is dating Calista Flockhart. Apparently, Flockhart, 38, moved in with Ford with her two-year-old son Liam this year.

Antonio BanderasChristopher Hampton's Imagining Argentina about the military dictatorship in Argentina was booed at the Venice Film Festival, says a Reuters report.

Its lead star, Spanish heart-throb Antonio Banderas, could not make it to the world's oldest cinema competition.

The film is about Carlos Rueda (Banderas) and his search for his journalist wife (British actress Emma Thompson) after she is abducted.
