The “A Beautiful Day In The Neighborhood” actor was captured on camera in the audience, making a face that might be best described as “yikes,” as Gervais delivered a string of attacks against Hollywood. The British comedian said that Jeffrey Epstein didn’t kill himself, and called the Hollywood Foreign Press Association “very, very racist,” among other criticisms.
Hanks’ expressions during Gervais’ speech didn’t go unnoticed. Twitter users quickly shared screenshots of Hanks, calling his reaction to Gervais’ speech very relatable.
“Tom Hanks is all of us during that monologue,” writer/editer Ethan Anderton tweeted.
Hanks is slated to receive the prestigious Cecil B. deMille Award at Sunday’s ceremony.
