'Star Wars' actor Harrison Ford has compared himself to a ''battered old'' Ford car while admitting he does all he can to make the action look ''real on the screen''.

Harrison Ford feels ''like a battered'' old car after throwing himself at movie stunts.

The 'Star Wars' actor - who was recently injured on the set of the sci-fi saga - compared himself to a classic motor and admitted he brings it on himself due to his dedication.

Speaking to the Daily Express newspaper, he quipped: ''I am like a battered old Ford.

''And I keep on coming back for more. If it doesn't look real on the screen than an audience does not believe what it sees.''

The star - who was talking about his stunts before his latest injury occurred - insisted he is starting to know how to stop himself from getting too badly ''hurt''.

He explained: ''Although i do my own running, jumping and falling, I always try to keep myself from being hurt. So I know what will work and what won't.''

Meanwhile, he also admitted he never expected his big screen career to last as long as it has done.

He said: ''I honestly never thought my acting would last thing long. All I've done is try to get scripts which interest me and make sure I prepare as well as I possibly can.

''After that, it's a matter of hoping that people like what they see and keep on going back. It's not an 'art'. I simply enjoy it as a great job.''
