Oh *@#&! Tom Hanks swears on 'Good Morning America'

An Oscar-winning actor did what some might think is impossible Friday- made ”Good Morning America” interesting.

Tom Hanks

To accomplish this goal, Tom Hanks, looking the part of Walt Disney, who he is playing in “Saving Mrs. Banks,” used one of many accents he broke out in the Wachowski Brothers’ upcoming sci film “Cloud Atlas.” He tried to cover his mouth, but alas it was too late.

”I have never done that before,” Hanks said, saying next time he’s on the show he would have a seven-second delay. He also apologized to “the kids of America that are watching right now.” He then joking blamed the show’s crew for giving him a hand-held microphone.

He took to Twitter later to offer somewhat of an apology: "For GMA, spesh kowtow for Lizzie V for WHAT DID I JUST SAY??? Oops! In character! Sorry! Hanx."

A statement from ABC issued afterwards said, “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.”

“Cloud Atlas,” which also stars Halle Berry and Susan Sarandon, is in theaters Oct. 26.

Here is the incident in question:

I think Tom Hanks is a very well respected and great Actor and Producer. Even for Tom this was an embarrassing moment. Actors of his caliber behave very well in public. This is why you never see them in gossip rags, unless its bogus. Although many children and adults swear, there is a place and time for it. On a show such as Good Morning America it is not. We should be able to remain civil for most part of the day. Letting loose is for the night when the children are in bed.

Who cares about starving kids in Africa? It's a TV site, you idiot. This is TV news. Only in America? Get your head out of your ass, and check your racism.
