When Tom Hanks wants to win, he usually gets his way. And in 2011, the beloved actor appeared onJimmy Kimmel Live to show the audience he’s not only a talented thespian, but he’s also a ruthless beauty pageant coach. Say what?!
Watch as Hanks gets Kimmel to play a clip from his appearance on Toddlers & Tiaras in which he reveals what life is like in the two days leading up to a children’s beauty pageant. His six-year-old daughter, Sophie, hopes to take first place in Nevada’s “Ultimate Sexy Baby” pageant, and Hanks is morethan supportive of her dreams.
From teaching her how to properly walk to applying her gigantic wig and overdone makeup, Hanks reveals a side of himself the general public never gets to see — but don’t worry, it’s all a joke! With a storyline à laLittle Miss Sunshine, Hanks and Sophie (who is not actually his daughter, but an actor) are absolutely hilarious in this satirical take on today’s trend of pageant moms. By the end, Kimmel’s audience is dying of laughter, and this video went viral with nearly 12 million YouTube views.
Try not to laugh along… I dare you!
