The US Presidential candidate was secretly recorded on film admitting he had tried to seduce a married woman and making other derogatory comments about women - and Hanks has revealed his contempt for the controversial politician.

During an interview to promote his new movie 'Inferno', the award-winning actor responded to Trump's claim that his comments were merely "locker-room" chat, saying: "He was at work, man. He wasn't in a locker room.

"He was at work. He was showing up to do a thing on camera. Look, I'm offended as a man. I'm not offended as a husband or a father. I'm offended as a guy. That's just not right, I'm sorry. It's not right at work, it's not right in the locker room. It's wrong, period. The end. That's all."

This comes shortly after Hanks called on voters to ensure that the sort of nightmarish scenario depicted in his new movie does not come to fruition.

He previously said: "There are any number of places you could go on the planet Earth and the environment is hellacious and the people are held in slavery and there's any number of degrees of misery that are in fact created by ourselves one way or another.

"So the concept of Inferno, to me, is one that can be avoided, but only if everybody understands what the problem is and works to avoid it."
