Tom Hanks Drops F-Bomb on ‘Good Morning America’

Actor Tom Hanks was on ABC’s “Good Morning America” this morning, and promptly undid his reputation as one of the cleanest guys in Hollywood by dropping an F-bomb.

There were mic issues, so Hanks had to hold a handheld microphone for the interview, making it somewhat awkward from the start. After showing a clip from his new movie “Cloud Atlas” at 8:25 AM, Elizabeth Vargas asked Hanks to speak in the accent he used in the clip. “Most of it is swear words,” Hanks warned, “well if you say it in an accent like that they won’t notice,” Vargas replied.

Hanks, with the deep accent, said “I want people to fucking…” before catching what he said and generating an instant apology from Vargas.

“I am so sorry, I have slipped into a brand of acting, I have never done that before,” Hanks said. “I want to apologize to the kids in America that are watching right now, and let me say that the next time I am on ‘Good Morning America’ there will be a seven second delay.”

After finishing the interview, Hanks looked to the camera, and channeled his inner Richard Nixon, quipping:

“Once again, my apologies to the people of the United States of America.”

A spokesperson for ABC News says : “This morning Tom Hanks accidently used an expletive during a live interview on GMA with Elizabeth Vargas. They both immediately apologized on air, and the show was corrected for all subsequent feeds.”
