Double Oscar-winner Tom Hanks messed up big time and stunned millions of viewers (not to mention himself and the Good Morning America crew) on Friday (Oct 19) morning, after accidently swearing whilst on the live broadcasted morning show.
Hanks was chatting with GMA host Elizabeth Vargas about his upcoming movie Cloud Atlas, when Vargas asked the actor whether he could recite a few lines from the movie in character.
