Paul Bettany was in an interview with Johnny Depp for Mortdecai recently, retelling stories about fight scenes when he burst out with this absolute gem of a story about America’s sweetheart/greatest treasure,Tom Hanks on the set of The Davinci Code.
I punched him, and he farted. And I didn’t know what the… I didn’t know what the right thing to do was. Whether you mention it or – as an Englishman, I felt as if I should say, ‘Oh God, sorry! I farted!’ He just looked at me and said, ‘You just made me fart. Isn’t that funny?’ And I loved him for it.”
Can Tom Hanks get any better? Is there even a better anecdote about two famous actors? Nope, because Paul Bettany punched a fart right out of Tom Hanks.
Props to cinema blend.
