This Transcript Of Harry Styles Drunkenly Chatting To Tom Hanks Deserves Its Own Short Film Adaptation
Oh the cringe.
Back in 2014 when Hendall was alive and well, Harry found himself chatting to the actor backstage at an Eagles gig along with comedian Kathy Griffin.
And thanks to her new book, "Kathy Griffin’s Celebrity Run-Ins: My A-Z Index", and this sneak preview from Us Weekly, we've now got a full play by play as to what exactly was said.
An allegedly very, very wasted Harry Styles walked into the room and made a beeline for Tom Hanks.
Harry: Re-membah when you wuz savin’ Private Ryan and had to bring ‘im back to ‘is mum? Re-membah?
Tom Hanks politely replies with caution: Yes.
Harry: Re-membah when you wuz in Cappin Phillips? And the other guy sez, ‘Oim’ the capn’ now”? ‘Membah?
Tom, trying go figure this young man out: Yes, yes, I do remember.
Harry: Was that scaarrry?
Even I wasn’t expecting that question. I turned to Tom: Yeah, Tom, was that scary?
Tom, clearly trying to save Harry Styles from himself (in a way Candle Jenner never could): Harry, have you met my friend, the comedian Kathy Griffin? (Tom really hit the word comedian hard.)
Harry was unfazed and returned his attention to the great Tom Hanks again …with the questions. It was like he was doing a memory brain teaser.
Harry: Re-membah when you wuz Forrest Gump? ‘Membah? ‘Membah?
Tom, still indulging: I was, yes.
Harry: You wuz always runnin’? Membah?
Yes, he was asking Tom Hanks if Tom remembers playing the role of Forrest Gump, for which he won the Academy Award. I can’t point out here enough how Harry Styles seemed to think it was him mission to make sure Tom Hanks did not forget the names of any of his films or the fact that he had starred in these films.
Harry: That was a good film.
Tom: I do remember.
Without explanation, Harry Styles turned and pivoted away. Tom Hanks had been pretty much frozen in the same sport during this magical and epic exchange. Tom’s answer was perfect and delivered very dryly:
Tom: Sometimes, I just want to drive them to rehab myself.
