We certainly weren't the first people to point out the parallels between President Nixon's relationship with the press and President Trump's endless repudiation of the media as "fake news" when we talked to Steven Spielberg and the cast of "The Post."
"We apologize to the Academy, press, and fans for any confusion," the network said after the duo were listed as nominees on Oscar.com.
Tom Hanks was on The Graham Norton Show alongside the Olympic great Mo Farah, a British distance runner. Because of this, Norton asked Hanks to recite his line from Forrest Gump where he discovers his love of running: “Now you wouldn’t believe me if I told you, but I can run like the wind blows. From that day on, if I was going somewhere, I was running.”
Ever since Donald Trump was voted the 45th President of the United States Of America documentarian Michael Moore has been the offensive to try and challenge the Republican. Not only did Michael Moore’s “Morning After To-Do List” the day after the election go viral, but he’s been using Facebook live during his attendance at protests outside Trump Tower, and now he’s decided who needs to challenge Donald Trump at the 2020 election. Michael Moore made this revelation during his appearance on CNN’s State Of The Union show, where he insisted that the Democratic party need to follow Trump’s lead and have a populist candidate in four years time.
The announcement earlier this year that a ‘Splash’ remake is in the works immediately led fans of the original to ponder if there would be room for Tom Hanks. When Hanks was quizzed about whether he is involved in the new incarnation of ‘Splash’, he responded, “No one asked me! I’m all in favour of it. In the 1984 version of ‘Splash’, Tom Hanks’ Allen Bauer falls in love with Daryl Hannah’s mermaid after she saves him from drowning.
Tom Hanks is making the rounds to promote Inferno, his third film as symbologist Robert Langdon, the hero of author Dan Brown’s best-selling adventures who deciphers historical clues to stave off global disaster. For Hanks, that’s involved the expected — hosting Saturday Night Live, visiting The Late Show With Stephen Colbert, where the late-night host discovered his inner Zoltar machine from Hanks’s 1988 film, Big; watch the highlights below.
In fact, the Tom Hanks conspiracy peril-a-thon has taken a bit of a panning at the hands of the critics. Helmed once again by Ron Howard, Hanks’ magizoologist, sorry, symbologist, is on the trail of Ben Foster’s Betrand Zobrist, a scientist bent on solving the human race’s population problem in a particularly apocalyptic manner. Langdon too finds himself the subject of a manhunt, though he’s assisted along the way by ‘Rogue One’ star Felicity Jones’s Dr. Sienna Brooks.
Leave it to Tom Hanks to put Donald Trump in his place. The Republican presidential nominee has rightfully come under incessant attack over the last few days since audio footage of him suggesting back in 2005 that he could grab women by their genitalia because he was famous emerged.
Hey, remember that time when Tom Hanks directed a movie? No, not the 2011 flop Larry Crowne — his other movie, the 1996 comedy That Thing You Do! That film, about a fictional band that rises to one-hit wonder status in 1964, turns 20 today.
You can always count on Tom Hanks to be great. Hanks posed for some shots, the bride in particular looking pretty amazed by the turn of events. It reminds us of the time in 2012 that Hanks posed with some ‘loaded’ students at a pizza restaurant in North Dakota.
Clint Eastwood has spoken up about questions of taste over scenes of planes crashing into Manhattan skyscrapers in his new movie ‘Sully’. The film tells the amazing true story of pilot Chesley ‘Sully’ Sullenberger, and how he saved the lives of those aboard his US Airways flight by landing it safely on the Hudson River in 2009. “His reputation was at stake,” added Tom Hanks, who plays Sullenberger in the movie.
“Oh captain, my captain”, “Carpe diem” – these were phrases from 1989’s ‘Dead Poets Society’ that made a host of wannabe educationalists think they could change the world. ‘Dead Poets’ has its flaws (though Williams was rightly nominated for the Best Actor Oscar) but watching the actor as Mr Keating jumping on desks, doing classes outside and inspiring his pupils to defy authority (a bit) was stirring to many. “’Dead Poets Society’ made me want to be a teacher,” wrote @TheLakePoets.
Tom Hanks already saved that Private Ryan fellow. Now, he’s back to the heroics in Sully, the Clint Eastwood-helmed film about Chelsey “Sully” Sullenberger, the US Airways pilot who landed his disabled passenger jet in the Hudson River.
Tom Hanks has admitted that the reason he was diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes back in 2013 was down to him being a “total idiot” in his youth. “I’m part of the lazy American generation that has blindly kept dancing through the party and now finds ourselves with a malady,” Hanks poetically explained. Since he became a father at the age of 21, Hanks insisted that his diabetes diagnosis wasn’t the result of booze or drugs, but simply because of his fluctuating weight.
Ever wondered what globally renowned actor Tom Hanks gets up to in his spare time? Well if his Twitter account is anything to go by, it seems the ’Bridge of Spies’ star wants to be a Lost and Found officer. The hugely likeable and talented actor has, for reasons unknown, decided to use his Twitter account as a database of sorts whereby he asks his followers (all 11.6 million of them) to reunite owners with their lost property.
Recently, we showcased the actors who piled on pounds for film roles, but now it’s time to go the other way and look at the actors who dramatically slimmed down. Undoubtedly the harder discipline of the two, some actors took the challenge to crazy extremes as this gallery explains.
With all the excitement of Christmas you’d be forgiven for overlooking the first images of Ron Howard’s latest film ‘Inferno’ that have been released.
Steven Spielberg was famously turned down by Cubby Broccoli to direct a James Bond film, even though the director is a huge fan of the series… and responsible for some of the greatest films ever made obviously. When we talked to Spielberg while he was promoting his superb new thriller ‘Bridge of Spies’, he told us about his Bond rejections, and why he wouldn’t direct one now. “Cubby Broccoli he turned me down two or three times.
Yahoo Movies UK was delighted (and a bit scared) to sit down with Hollywood legends Tom Hanks and Steven Spielberg to talk about their new film ‘Bridge Of Spies’. The cold war thriller is their fourth big screen collaboration after ‘Saving Private Ryan’, ‘Catch Me If You Can’ and ‘The Terminal’, and sees Hanks play James Donovan, a real-life insurance lawyer asked to defend Soviet spy Rudolf Abel (Mark Rylance). The film has been getting strong Oscar buzz, and is exactly the kind of well-crafted filmmaking you’d expect from Hanks and Spielberg.
A newly unveiled porcelain bust of the Queen has been criticised for looking more like Tom Hanks than HRH herself. The statue, which is the largest piece of Chinese white porcelain ever made, was made by Chinese artist Chan Dapeng as a “gesture of reconciliation” between China and Britain and is on display now at the Winter Art and Antiques Fair. It’s ended up looking a bit like Tom Hanks. Good for him.” Paul Harris who organized the display of the artist dubbed China’s “new Rodin” defended the work explaining that the piece was created under very difficult circumstances.

Want to join Tom Hanks and Steven Spielberg for chat? You can re-watch a live question-and-answer session with Spielberg and Hanks from Thursday night (above) as they discuss their new fact-based historical thriller Bridge of Spies, which opens Oct. 16.

Hanks threw in a great story from his Oscar-winning role in Saving Private Ryan and also explained that his white hair is for a new role.
When Tom Hanks finds someone’s ID in the street, he doesn’t just throw a bundle of lighted $100 bills at it and then laugh in a tramp’s face. Nope. He picks it up and does his best to try and find said ID’s owner. Yesterday, he found the student card of a young lady named Lauren, currently studying at Fordham University in New York.

At least that was the case on Tuesday when Hanks commented on about a dozen threads. The general discussion topics, posed to all users on the site, ranged from the recent discovery of water on Mars to his biggest fear. The way we know Hanks was really giving the answers?
