Why Tom Hanks Doesn't Want to Screen 'The Post' at White House

Tom Hanks, who plays the famed newspaper editor Ben Bradlee in an upcoming movie "The Post," claims that he wouldn't want to screen his new movie at the White House. In fact, the Hollywood Reporter claims that the two-time Oscar winner would refuse to go to the White House for the screening of his own movie. 

His reason? He claims that President Trump has been attacking the First Amendment to the US Constitution. 

When asked whether he would want this movie to be screened at the White House, Hanks remarked that such a question is an "interesting" one. 

"That's an interesting question," he remarked. "I don't think I would." 

Similarly, when asked if he would go to the movie should it be screened at the White House, Hanks said no.

His reason for not wanting the movie to be screened at the White House is also interesting. He claims that he "Didn't think things were going to be this way last November." 

"I would not have been able to imagine that we should be living in a country where neo-Nazis are doing torchlight parades in Charlottesville and jokes about Pocahontas are being made in front of Navajo code talkers."

According to Hanks, America has reached a time where choices should be guided by personal opinions. 

"We have to start voting, actually, before the election. So, I would probably vote not to go."

Vanity Fair writes that Hank's remarks aren't surprising, especially given the unique plot of "The Post." Apparently, the film is based on a true story of the Washington Post's decision to publish the Pentagon papers, despite pushback from the Nixon administration. 

President Trump has also criticized the co-star of "The Post," Meryl Streep, calling her one of the most "over-rated" stars in Hollywood.
