It was supposed to be a funny impersonation of someone who swears a lot. Tom Hanks got a little too into the role.

While promoting his new movie "Cloud Atlas," Hanks stopped by the "Good Morning America" set and was having a lighthearted chat in the studio with Elizabeth Vargas when he let the F-word drop while doing an impression of a character.

"Next time I'm on this show there will be a 7 second delay," Hanks tweeted shortly after the appearance.

The East Coast broadcast is the only version to have the uncensored appearance. Rebroadcasts in all other time zones are censored.
