Perpetual Hollywood good guy Tom Hanks dropped the F-bomb on ABC’s “Good Morning America” Friday morning before clapping his hand over his mouth and quickly apologizing to the “kids in America.”
Hanks was on the morning show to promote his newest film, “Cloud Atlas” when ABC’s Elizabeth Vargas had asked him to do his character’s accent.
“Mostly it’s swear words,” Hanks warned.
“Well, if you say it in an accent like that they won’t notice,” Vargas said.
Hanks, in a deep accent, said something along the lines of “I want people to f–king–” before catching himself and earning a prompt apology from Vargas to the viewers.
“Man oh man, I’m 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 this right now, and let me say that the next time I’m on the show there will be a seven-second delay.”
