I'm offended by Donald Trump: Tom Hanks

Press Trust of India  |  Los Angeles 

Oscar-winning actor Tom Hanks has revealed he felt offended "as a man" by Donald Trump's lewd remarks on a 2005 video tape.

The US Presidential candidate was secretly recorded on film admitting he had tried to seduce a married woman and making other derogatory comments about women, and Hanks has revealed his contempt for the controversial politician, The Hollywood Reporter said.

During an interview to promote his new movie "Inferno", Hanks responded to Trump's claim that his comments were merely "locker-room" chat, saying: "He was at work, man. He wasn't in a locker room.

"He was at work. He was showing up to do a thing on camera. Look, I'm offended as a man. I'm not offended as a husband or a father. I'm offended as a guy. That's just not right, I'm sorry. It's not right at work, it's not right in the locker room. It's wrong, period. The end. That's all."

This comes shortly after Hanks called on voters to ensure that the sort of nightmarish scenario depicted in his new movie does not come to fruition.
