During their conversation, the topic of of sexual harassment in Hollywood came up and Tom had a lot to say about the matter.

“There are some people who go into this business because they get off on having power,” Tom said. “And the times they feel the most powerful, which is why they went into the business, are when they are hitting on somebody who’s underneath them, [and] I don’t necessarily mean completely sexually. There are predators absolutely everywhere.”

Tom continued: “Somebody said, ‘Is it too late to change things?’ No, it’s never too late. It’s never too late to learn new behaviors. And that’s a responsibility of anybody who wants to obey a code of professional ethics.”

    I am such a big fan of his. I hope there are never any accusations against him. That would just be too much.

    “With malice towards none.”

    Is always what I think of when I see Tom Hanks. For some reason, I can’t see him having even a ounce of grey on him. He just comes off as a genuine human being. I could be wrong, I’m not gullible or anything. This whole thing has been a learning experience, you just don’t know people. But with Tom Hanks, can you SEE him doing shady things? Illegal things? No matter where it is all around the globe? Investments, politics or just how he conducts his ship as it were? I can’t. Some of the people getting their butts handed to them and rightfully should, you can actually see them doing such things. I don’t know why, but you can. If he is as genuine as he comes off, he’s a jewel of a person, he was raised right and is a testament to his parents. Wish we had more decent people like him.
