    I think it is time for television to stop trying to “protect” people from this sort of language. It would have received far less attention if they had just let it go. I realize that a few people would get hysterical, but they would get over it.

    A lot of people mess up like this – you can tell Tom Hanks reeeeally didn’t mean to. Genuine guy. Can’t not like him!

    The “kids of America” should have been in school where they are likely to hear much worse than that…

    Elizabeth Vargas is to blame. Tom said he shouldn’t do it because it involves swear words, and Vargas said, “Go ahead. With the accent nobody will understand it”.

    Saw this live. Really funny. I had a feeling he’d slip once I saw the character beforehand. Movies stereotype Brit gangsters as dropping f-bombs every other word. He was probably just using a piece of memorized dialogue.

    I would not mind Tom Hanks talking dirty to me. I know, that’s a bit depraved. LOL.

    I couldn’t even tell what he was saying so he would have been OK to just carry on.

    I’m sure the crazy right wingers will be trying to sue him and get him banned from TV. YAWN.

    WTF?

    At any rate, if you take anything from this interview:

    SEE CLOUD ATLAS.

    It’s such a great movie.

    It’s like a fart. If you loudly exclaim “Excuse me” it simply calls attention to it – rather than letting ‘it pass’…as it were.
    Leave it alone!

    Congratulations GMA; you got some good, very cheap publicity that’ll bring in more viewers and advertiser $. My impression is it was staged. Whatever. Tom Hanks is cool.

    Tom, Please, please, please shave. And any children watching this show and even half engaged to it should be in school. If the children are toddlers, mom, dad, (probably mom), will you turn the f****** TV off.
