Tom Hanks Speaks Out About Harvey Weinstein: 'His Last Name Will Become A Noun & A Verb'

Tom Hanks is the latest member of Hollywood to speak out about Harvey Weinstein amid the movie producer’s ongoing sexual assault scandal.

“We’re at a watershed moment, this is a sea change,” the 61-year-old entertainer told the BBC. “His last name will become a noun and a verb. It will become an identifying moniker for a state of being for which there was a before and an after.”

“Everybody has stories about some aspect of the ‘casting couch’,” Tom added. “It would be too simplistic to say this only happens in Hollywood. I watch Mad Men, you could probably say the same about the advertising agency. Look at the halls of government, how many sex scandals do you have there?”

“There is going to be, righteously, a pause in the discussion for the women to be heard,” Tom continued. “Perhaps all men, myself included, should pipe down and not try to explain it or comment on it or certainly not try to defend it or even prosecute it because every one of those women, those 40 women I was in the room with, 100% of them need to be listened to.”

Tom Hanks On Disliking Press Junkets: 'You Lose It After A While'

Tom Hanks is opening up about his strong dislike of long press junkets.

“A press junket for a motion picture is the most opprobrious thing that human beings have ever been put through. It is merciless,” the 61-year-old entertainer expressed during his TimesTalks Q&A held at the BMCC Tribeca Performing Arts Center on Tuesday (October 17) in New York City. “It is a level or corporate branding strategy to the degree of hackery and they honestly think you have the stamina of an ox to drag this piece of s–t movie across international datelines.”

“It goes on forever until truly you cannot fathom words that are coming out of your mouth,” Tom continued “I’m saying this to educate. When you see a movie star talking about their film, understand they hate themselves. The motion picture they made is a blur in the background. Even when they see it, they don’t remember any of it.”

Tom also discusses his love of writing, the creative process, and his debut collection of short stories, “Uncommon Type: Some Stories.”
