Tom Hanks Was Flabbergasted by Marvel Star After He Made Him Do an Embarrassing Thing In Front of Everyone in $760M Movie

Tom Hanks and the Marvel star Paul Bettany share the silver screen in the 2006 American mystery thriller The Da Vinci Code. Both the actors have led a thriving career in Hollywood. In the Ron Howard-directed film, Hanks played the role of American symbologist Robert Langdon, and his co-star Bettany depicted the character of Silas, a tortured albino monk. Both stars delivered phenomenal performances and earned critical acclaim. 

Nevertheless, there are many intriguing behind-the-scenes anecdotes from the film set, as the one WandaVision star earlier revealed. His co-star once shared that while filming one fight sequence in the movie, he smacked him in the stomach, which put Hanks in an awkward position. The actor claimed that he punched him so hard that the award-winning actor farted loud enough, which ultimately everyone heard on the set.

The 67-year-old star has worked with enough A-list talents, including Paul Bettany. The actors shared the silver screen on the sets of their 2006 American mystery thriller The Da Vinci Code, based on acclaimed author Dan Brown’s 2003 novel.

In a candid interview, The Tourist movie star Paul Bettany revealed that while filming a fight sequence with his co-star Tom Hanks for The Da Vinci Code, he punched him so hard that the actor ended up farting. He said that usually, when actors are doing any scenes, there is a pin-drop silence on the set, and therefore it was an awkward situation when he smacked him and the actor farted loud enough that everyone heard the sound. Bettany recalled,

“I was like, Holy shit, what am I going to do? It’s Tom Hanks, the biggest star in the world, and I’ve just made him fart, Gargantuan fart. He looked at me, and I looked at him. And he went, ‘What’s wrong with you?’”

In a previous interview, Hanks recalled the hilarious incident,

“Paul came rushing in, and I met him, and what had to happen- he was supposed to knock me down against a desk, and then I landed on the ground. And the way it sounded was grunts, yells, fart noise. I farted when I hit the floor. I farted. He’ll never forget this, and it’s made him dislike fight scenes.”

Ron Howard-directed movie earned negative reviews from critics. It grossed $760 million at the global box office. The film boasts a star-studded cast featuring Tom Hanks, Audrey Tautou, Sir Ian McKellen, Alfred Molina, Jürgen Prochnow, Jean Reno, and Paul Bettany.
