Tom & Rita attended the Kennedy Center Honors where Tom’s friend and co-star Sally Fields was honored. Tom shared this while on the red carpet.

“Sally just disappeared. She was just always the mom,” Hanks told USA TODAY. “(It’s) funny, when you work, you see each other, you have a cup of coffee in the hair and makeup trailer, you go over the day’s work and what your life has been like. Because we were friends prior to that, there was no maintenance to it, there was no work. There was just that pure, fabulous sharing of the day’s requirement as actors.”

Here is a clip from an interview Tom & Rita did at the event:

Tom is one of the talented actors that was featured in the Hollywood Reporter Actors Roundtable … here is an excerpt from the interview with Tom, Robert DeNiro, Adam Sadler, Jamie Foxx, and Adam Driver.

Robert De Niro, Adam Driver, Jamie Foxx and Adam Sandler also share dark moments, trade secrets and the roles that redefined their lives.

There’s an old adage among actors: An elderly actor, Edmund Gwenn, was getting toward the end of his life, living in a retirement home, when he was visited by a friend who commiserated about how difficult things must be. No, shrugged Gwenn, “Dying is easy. Comedy is hard.” That story was the starting point for a powerful, emotional and funny conversation involving some of the leading practitioners of both comedy and drama at this year’s Actor Roundtable. Robert De Niro, 76 (playing an aging — and de-aged — gangster in The Irishman) was joined by Adam Driver, 36 (as a man struggling with divorce in Marriage Story and a congressional operative trying to uncover the truth in The Report), Jamie Foxx, 51 (as a man wrongfully imprisoned in Just Mercy), Tom Hanks, 63 (as the real-life Mr. Rogers in A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood), Shia LaBeouf, 33 (as his own father in the autobiographical Honey Boy), and Adam Sandler, 53 (as a jewelry dealer struggling to survive in Uncut Gems).

So, dying is easy, comedy is hard. True or false?

ROBERT DE NIRO Well, there’s all kinds of comedy. Certain comedies are easy for certain people, certain comedy for me is not. I can’t do what Billy Crystal does, Eddie Murphy, Adam [Sandler]. But I can do other things. I like to think that I work in situations: In Marty Scorsese’s movies, some situations are funny and ironic in and of themselves, which is like life. Working with him, whatever you want to do, you can try and do it and maybe it’ll work. With some directors, you don’t even go there.

ADAM SANDLER If you have something you’re confident in, something you believe in, it’s the same. If you believe in a joke, if you believe in a dramatic scene, you go in there with the same approach.

JAMIE FOXX Here’s the thing: Comedy is a natural thing. I was watching [Sandler] when I was 18 years old, sneaking into The Comedy Store, watching him go up when it was like titans — it was Chris Rock, it was Eddie [Murphy] working out shit. I remember Eddie had on this yellow, fuckin’ Century 21 jacket. (Laughter.) And somebody said, “Yo, what’s up with that jacket?” And then Eddie, he said, “Oh, whatever, I’ll crush you with my wallet?” And then everybody started laughing.

SANDLER Oh yeah, yeah.

FOXX It’s interesting, when I look at everybody here, there’s respect. But then I look at Adam and before he even said anything, I’m laughing. That’s the first ingredient, right?

SANDLER That’s correct.

FOXX And then the second ingredient is: As comedians, you get that liftoff, that launch, where everything you’re saying is funny, it’s hilarious, people are giving you that light. It only becomes difficult once you reach that top comedic level. Now people are expecting the world. I was at Eddie’s house, he’s talking about getting back into stand-up. And I don’t know if you understand this with comedians, but we can never look good. If I start looking too good, I’m not as funny.

SANDLER You need something, an imperfection is going to relax an audience.

FOXX I said, “Eddie, if you want to do stand-up, first thing you’ve got to do is: You’ve got to fix your house.” He’s like, “What you mean?” I said, “Your house is too perfect. (Laughter.) You’ve got the candles, scented, and all that shit.” I said, “Eddie, at my crib, I have shit at my house that doesn’t work on purpose, so I stay funny. I’ve got this little carpet in the kitchen that’s sort of ruffled up and I’ve got a bathroom where you turn on the faucet and it sprays out.” And my daughter’s like, “Why don’t you fix it?” I feel like if I fix all this shit, I won’t be funny.

TOM HANKS Can you be funny if you grew up with a built-in swimming pool in your backyard? I don’t think you can. If you grew up being able to swim any time you wanted to, you experienced none of the shortcomings of life that you turn into self-deprecation. You can’t do it.
