Indonesia's forestry minister has accused Hollywood legend Harrison Ford of subjecting him to a rude interview on climate change that left him "shocked", an official said on Tuesday.

According to an AFP report, The "Indiana Jones" and "Star Wars" actor, who is making part of an environmental documentary in Indonesia, attacked the minister with questions during the encounter on Monday, said presidential advisor Andi Arief.

The advisor accused Mr Ford and his crew of "harassing state institutions" and said the 71-year-old could even be deported - although he was due to leave Indonesia later Tuesday anyway. Forestry Minister Zulkifli Hasan told reporters that he had been angered by Mr Ford's approach during the interview in the capital Jakarta.
