Harrison Ford is striking back at Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump, who the "Star Wars" actor accused of not being able to tell fact from fiction.

Trump told the New York Times last week that he enjoyed movies with heroic presidents — specifically 1997's "Air Force One," in which Ford plays a commander in chief who fights off a group of Russian terrorists who hijack the presidential plane.

“My favorite was Harrison Ford on the plane,” Trump said. "He stood up for America.”

Ford addressed Trump's comment Wednesday during an Australia press tour for "Star Wars: The Force Awakens."

"It's a movie. Donald, it was a movie," Ford growled into the camera. "It's not like this in real life, but how would you know."
