Tom Hanks

Drops F-Bomb

on 'Good Morning America'

10/19/2012 3:15 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF


There was no delay, no bleep and cutting away from Tom Hanks this morning on "Good Morning America" as he dropped an F-bomb live on the air ... just seconds before predicting he would.

"GMA" host Elizabeth Vargas asked Hanks to speak in the same accent he does in his new movie, "Cloud Atlas." Hanks said that would be tricky since it's mostly swear words ... and then he proceeded to try ... and cursed anyway!

Hanks apologized profusely, as did Vargas, and Hanks made another (probably) accurate prediction ... that his next appearance on the show will come with a seven second delay.

A rep for ABC tells us the situation was "corrected" for all subsequent feeds of the show.

I loved the look on his face I think he surprised himself. She was apologizing and laughing. I think it was great. The only think that I found concerning was that Tom's voice sounds like he's been smoking way too many cigarettes. I like him.

He said the accent included alotta swearing... Duh, Elizabeth, you didn't listen!! He was very funny about it & he did harm, no foul :) The public should not have an issue with this...i know some will, but really...get over it..s**t happens...

If he was talking to a parent, grandparent or someone [if anybody] he respects he wouldn't have "slipped". Our country is so screwed up and those who " think it was great" are the delinquent parent types that breed disrespectful kids who ultimately hate them for being a worthless parent and the social pathology beats goes on and on and on..

It was his bad guy moustache that made him swear. Time to wash that dirt off his upper lip.

You Americans are pathetic, you can show blood and violence on TV, have mass murders, crime rate is through the roof, but say **** on the air and it's OMG, he said the F-Word, oh no, letters will be written, it will make TMZ news. Get you're priorities straight people.
