Oprah Winfrey isn’t blabbing about her Tahitian vacation with the Obamas, but Tom Hanks is willing to spill!
The Circle star spilled to Stephen Colbert on The Late Show that while in general his time with Oprah and the Obamas was a “crazy Love Boat, Sandals resort fantastic” vacation, he did end up getting the short end of the stick at least once.
- Hanks tells his sad story: “I’ll tell you one thing that happens to Tom Hanks, little Tommy Hanks on that trip. He gets screwed in the bad way, in the pejorative way, not in the delightful way.”
- He claims that one day “an array of bikes” were procured from all corners of Polynesia and Tahiti. But when “everybody gets on their bikes and takes off” — including Secret Service — he’s left with the “one piece of junk, hunk-o’-junk bike.” A “rusted, undersized girls’ bike.” Poor little Tommy!
- On the Colbert show, he also mentioned he’d sent a recent gift of an espresso machine to the White House press corps. He shared the note he sent with it: "To the White House press corps. Keep up the good fight for truth, justice, and the American way. Especially for the truth part."
