Tom Hanks Flips Out

3/19/2009 5:42 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

The patron saint of Hollywood, the almighty Tom Hanks, finally broke from his good guy image and exhibited some edge by giving photographers the finger in Brentwood yesterday. Does he hold his Oscars with that hand?!

I hate celebrities that flick off cameras. It's so tacky and very juvenile. Newsflash: It's not going to make them go away and it's going to make you look like a jerk. By the way, I lived in LA for several years and heard a lot of awful things about Tom Hanks from people who met him. Perhaps this picture is incredibly accurate.

Disgusting    

Don't celebs realize these gestures are futile, and actually make them look bad. If celebs don't like the attention, then pack it in and take the money and run and get out of the spotlight. You can't pick and choose the spoils of your job. Meanwhile, you never see a celebrity turning down special treatment or favors because of who they are.

The photog probably asked him about his best work – Bosom Buddies. I can't believe this no talent hack won multiple Oscars. Just goes to show you – it’s all about marketing the movies that can make the most $$.

Avenge, revenge, whatever    

Tom Hanks takes himself so seriuosly. He pretends to be so humble and kind when he's being interviewed, but he's really just a self-involved jerk. In his eyes, he can do no wrong and could change the world if people would just follow him.

Oh, and talk about Bosom Buddies...Nice moobs Mr. Hanks. You might want to invest in a Bro (or Manssiere).

Very disappointed in Tom Hanks. Thought he had a little more class than to resort to doing this.

Hehehe....are you guys kidding me?..You are offended by someone giving the finger ? Yet...in the same breath you feel its ok for this site ( and many others) to feed like vultures over the untimely death of a mother, wife and daughter. I'm offended over the millions of dollars spent for AIG bonuses...I'm offended over genocide in the Sudan....I am not so petty or "Holier than thou" to be offended by what Mr. Hanks did.

You lot need to grow up and find something worth being offended by.........
