Tom Hanks is currently touring the chat shows talking about Toy Story 4. But his answers this week deviated a little from Disney’s approved script when he landed on Jimmy Kimmel’s couch.
The talk show host innocently asked if there were things Hanks wasn’t allowed to say about the movie, only for the actor to produce a pile of papers from his pocket.
“I have these talking points that Disney gives you at the beginning of the press junket thing,’ he explained, before comparing the notes to the Gutenberg Bible, stressing that he took them everywhere and showing off their tomato juice stains.
“These are things you are not supposed to say or are supposed to say?” asked Kimmel.
The answer was both. The Forest Gump actor then went on to read out sections he was advised not to mention replacing the sensitive text with humming.
“There are all sorts of rules,” he continued. “They also give you sample questions – which you are yet to ask my friend!’ he told Kimmel.
He went on to also reveal a sample answer about another character - that of Bo Peep.
“Bo Peep should be described as a strong character from the beginning. Her recent experience has perhaps made her stronger, but she was never a weak character.”
The actor then laughed, saying,“Do you know how many executives now want to kick my ass because I brought this out?”
The actor went on Jimmy Kimmel to promote the fourth film in the Disney Pixar series, which he had only recently seen after years of five hours segments of recording spread out over years.
“It’s one of the best movies i’ve ever seen in my life,” he freely admitted.
Toy Story 4 is available in the cinemas in the UK from 21 June.
