( CM ) - INDIANA JONES star HARRISON FORD was inspired to have his ear pierced after a drinking session with earring-wearing pals ED BRADLEY and JIMMY BUFFETT.
The actor's choice to sport the jewellery at the age of 65 has raised eyebrows, but he insists it was a spontaneous decision inspired by alcohol, 10 years ago.
He says. "I was at a semi-drunken lunch with Ed Bradley and Jimmy Buffett, who were both wearing earrings.
"I walked down Madison Avenue till I found the first jewellery store that pierced ears."
