Tom Hanks just dropped an inadvertent F-bomb on Good Morning America host Elizabeth Vargas — but it isn't like she wasn't warned.

Hanks was asked to speak like one of the characters from his upcoming movie, Cloud Atlas, whom Hanks said has a penchant for four-letter words.

He launched into it anyway, and, sure enough, a fleeting expletive quickly followed.

Hanks and Vargas apologized to America, but how long do they really expect America to stay mad at Tom Fucking Hanks?

UPDATE: ABC has just released the following statement: "This morning Tom Hanks accidently [sic] used an expletive during a live interview on 'GMA' with Elizabeth Vargas. They both immediately apologized on air, and the show was corrected for the all subsequent feeds."
