Harrison Ford has revealed which Ryan Gosling film he most admires, and strangely enough, it wasn't saccharine romantic drama The Notebook.

While promoting sci-fi thriller Blade Runner 2049 - in which Ford reprises his role as former android bounty hunter Rick Deckard opposite Gosling's new special cop Officer K, Ford spoke about the Gosling movie which inspired him to work with the star.

"It wasn't The Notebook," the Star Wars actor jokingly told ET, with Gosling quipping: "I'm gonna take a wild stab in the dark and say it wasn't.

"It wasn't The Notebook."

"Everything I've seen him do was a challenge well met. It was more than I thought you could possibly do," Ford continued. "I mean, the discipline to learn all the dancing, the singing and the keyboard [in La La Land]… but also [films like] The Place Beyond the Pines.

"I've been watching him for years and I really admire what he's done."

Gosling returned the compliment, and added that he's been a huge fan of Ford since he was a child, sharing: "I mean to get to work with him was an incredible opportunity.

"Not only because his movies have meant a lot to me, but because it was an opportunity to see how it's done, you know? He's been creating all these seminal movie experiences for all of us.

"He's the one person who hasn't got to experience that, because he's been too busy making them. And so to have a window into how he does that was really great."

It was recently reported that the highly-anticipated sequel to 1982's classic Blade Runner has officially been classified as R rated - which means a 15 or 18 certificate in the UK.

The Denis Villeneuve-directed film will be released in the UK on 6 October.
