Tom Hanks didn't mince his words when criticising Donald Trump's obscene remarks.

The actor slammed the Republican presidential candidate and his comments condoning sexual assault from a leaked 2005 conversation with former Access Hollywood presenter Billy Bush.

In the audio, Trump can be heard making a number of sexist and offensive comments before boasting that when you have reached a certain level of fame “you can do anything [..] grab them [women] by the p***y. You can do anything”.

“He was at work, man. He wasn’t in a locker room,” Hanks said, referencing Trump's response to the comments as "locker room talk"

“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."

Getting increasingly agitated, he added, “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.”

Hanks previously spoke about Trump’s candidacy with Sky News in April. The actor said he believed the GOP candidate would become president “right about the time spaceships come down filled with dinosaurs in red capes.”
