Tom Hanks was on The Graham Norton Show alongside the Olympic great Mo Farah, a British distance runner. Because of this, Norton asked Hanks to recite his line from Forrest Gump where he discovers his love of running: “Now you wouldn’t believe me if I told you, but I can run like the wind blows. From that day on, if I was going somewhere, I was running.”

Hanks, of course, was happy to oblige but had one condition, that the person holding his cue card be shown onscreen. “You must show the woman with the cue card, because otherwise people will think I’ve actually memorized this,” he joked. After reciting the line, Hanks got quite a bit of applause.
