Toy Story 4 just dropped in theaters and has been a huge success.
Actor Tom Hanks has been out promoting the film. Recently, he shared an interesting ordeal happen at a music festival when the 62-year-old actor was denied from buying a beer because he didn’t have his ID on him.
Hanks and his wife Rita Wilson were at California’s Stagecoach music festival when it all went down. Also, Wilson performed at the festival.
Hanks appeared on the Graham Norton Show to tell the story of when he couldn’t buy a beer.
“The great thing about these outdoor festivals, like Stagecoach or Coachella, you know, it’s really hot, and they have beer pavillions everywhere, so we were there, and Rita sang at about 1.30 in the afternoon, at about 1.10, I decided to go get myself a frosty cold one.”
“And I went up and said ‘Hi, how you doin?” I give them a couple seconds to let the H-bomb drop… ‘Tom Hanks!’ ‘Hi how are you, nice to see you, could I have a draw please? ‘Oh yeah sure, could we see your ID bracelet?'”
Then, Hanks apparently replied saying that “First of all, you know my name, and secondly, I’d like a beer.”
Apparently, they said they couldn’t sell him one without ID bracelet. He asked where to get a bracelet, which was apparently half a mile away.
“I said, ‘Look, not only am I who you think I am, I’m also 62 goddam years old,'” Hanks said. “These ladies were not allowed to sell me a beer without my official Stagecoach ‘I am over 21 ID bracelet.’”
Eventually, Hanks finally got what he wanted — a simple brew.
“I did not have a beer until somebody went over and got me an ID bracelet, and I came back,” he said.
He added that the staff felt bad, and the manager even said she’d get fired if she gave him a drink.
