Harrison Ford has paid a painful price for his desire to protect the rain forest. The 65-year-old movie star had his chest hair waxed for a commercial for Conservation International. The commercial was produced to increase awareness about the effect of deforestation on global warming.
The actor, famous for countless films, usually does not take part in commercials. In this case, however, Ford sits on the board of directors of the Washington-based environmental organization Conservation International.
Ford agreed to do the 30-second television spot. “I didn’t have to talk him into anything,” Conservation International CEO Seligmann says. “I was there when he filmed it. It really hurt. There’s nothing about the expression on his face that was fake.”
So what was Ford’s important message? “Every bit of rain forest that gets ripped out over there, really hurts us over here.” Thank you Harrison Ford for supporting such an important and noble cause
