Tom Hanks Unloads on Donald Trump’s ‘Locker Room’ Comments: ‘I’m Offended as a Man’

"It’s wrong, period"

Tom Hanks doesn’t think his reason for being offended by Donald Trump needs much qualification.

During an interview to promote his upcoming film Inferno, the 60-year-old actor criticized the the remarks about women that Trump made during a leaked 2005 conversation with former Access Hollywood co-host Billy Bush.

“He was at work, man. He wasn’t in a locker room,” Hanks said, referencing the GOP candidate’s response to the comments as “locker room” talk. “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.”
