Harrison Ford may be old enough to qualify for a free bus pass, but the actor has no plans of calling time on his career.

The 68-year-old, who plays a TV anchorman in new movie Morning Glory, said retirement was for "old people".

He told the Daily Telegraph: "I'm still in the business, thank you. I have a young child of nine years old, and I want to live as long as I can to see him grow up."

He went on: "I'm enjoying my life and I want to stick around for as long as I can."

In Morning Glory Harrison stars alongside Diane Keaton as a grumpy veteran journalist made to co-host a floundering breakfast TV show.

Unlike most Hollywood stars Harrison, who married former Ally McBeal star Calista Flockhart last June, has no personal trainer or strict fitness regime.

He admitted: "I don't do a huge amount of physical activity. I play tennis, I work out sporadically, and I eat well and take care of myself."

:: Morning Glory is released on January 21.

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant

Capricorn:

Your dry humour will be very popular. It's always difficult bringing a large group of people together. Everybody feels like they are walking on eggshells. After cracking a few jokes, you'll put the group at ease. Resist the temptation to make fun of relatives, especially the more sensitive members of the group. Nobody likes feeling singled out. Watching a light hearted comedy can also be a great way to generate a festive atmosphere. This is a time when people can put their differences aside.More
