Tom Hanks faced furious mum after TV swearing slip-up

The star was promoting his latest movie Cloud Atlas on Good Morning America when he let slip the ‘f’ word during a chat with Elizabeth Vargas.

He immediately covered his mouth and then launched into a grovelling apology.

His mistake drew criticism from bosses at America’s Parents Television Council (PTC) – and the star admits his own mum was also furious at his slip-up.

He tells E! News, “If it’s possible to reach through the phone and slap your mouth, my mum did it, or would have done it to me over the phone.”
