Tom Hanks revisits his “Forrest Gump” days as the actor takes a seat on Friday’s episode of “The Graham Norton Show”.
With British distance runner Mo Farah also appearing on the late night taping, it was the perfect opportunity to channel the quirky character for old times’ sake.
Thanks to some helpful cue cards, the “Sully” star has no problem slipping back into his Oscar-winning role, delivering one of the film’s most iconic lines: “Now, you wouldn’t believe me if I told you, but I could run like the wind blows. From that day on, if I was going somewhere, I was running!”
Talk of the 1994 film also pushed Hanks to reminisce about his previously pert posterior. “I had worked out quite a bit, and it was all about running,” Hanks explained. “My buttocks, as Forrest would say, were as firm as tend hams.”
“It’s not there anymore,” he added. “I must say, I even think it’s a beautiful thing to behold.”
