- Tom Hanks gave a speech at the 92nd Annual Academy Awards.
- The actor made a joke comparing Brad Pitt and Colin Jost's bodies.
- Some viewers at home were shocked by his unexpected jab.
Tom took the stage on Sunday night to announce the opening of the Academy Museum of Motion Pictures in Los Angeles. Naturally, the two-time Oscar winner livened up his speech praising the project with a few jokes about building the museum alongside his fellow actors.
"There has never been a museum dedicated to the art and sciences of motion pictures. But it is being born, this labor of love," he said. "A bunch of us were over there just this morning. I was putting up some drywall. Scarlett Johansson brought her orbital sander. Brad Pitt was working on the roof with his shirt off, as was Colin Jost—and, dude, that was no contest."
While Tom's comment about the way Colin looks with his shirt off earned plenty of laughs from the live audience, viewers at home were totally thrown off. Some called it a "cheap shot," while others were confused about which actor Tom was insulting.

Why is Tom Hanks dunking on Colin Jost?— 𝕃𝕖𝕒𝕙 𝕃𝕒𝕟𝕖 🚀 (@get_leah) February 10, 2020
Others were just shocked that "nicest man in Hollywood" Tom had it in him.
Colin Jost sitting next to Scarlett in front row, feeling smug, until nicest man in Hollywood, Tom Hanks, tells a “joke” 😂🤣 pic.twitter.com/8Z7PNqwv5R— ginger (@ginnykc) February 10, 2020
DID TOM HANKS JUST THROW SHADE AT COLIN JOST HAHAHAHA— ericathesuckup™ (@ericathesuckup) February 10, 2020
Never knew how much we needed Tom Hanks to insult Colin Jost on national television until right now.— Bright Wall/Dark Room (@BWDR) February 10, 2020
Regardless of who he was trying to roast, it was obviously just a joke. Considering Brad looks like he's made of stone and Colin makes fun of people for a living on Saturday Night Live, we doubt that either of them were offended by the sassy remark.
In conclusion: Tom Hanks still must be protected at all costs. 🙏
