Win­kler re­veals Tom Hanks feud

The Sunday Telegraph (Sydney) - - WORLD -

TOM Hanks may be Hol­ly­wood’s favourite lead­ing man, but not ev­ery­one be­lieves the hype.

When Happy Days star Henry Win­kler was asked about his short-lived stint di­rect­ing the 1989 film Turner & Hooch, he more or less con­firmed there was still bad blood be­tween him and the For­rest Gump star.

“I got along great, great with that dog,” the Fonz said of the film’s crime-solv­ing dogue de Bordeaux. “Love that dog.

“I was di­rect­ing that movie for 13 days … and then I was called into Jeff Katzen­berg’s of­fice. And he said, ‘do you have ev­ery­thing with you? Go home’.”

For years, ru­mours have swirled that Hanks pushed Win­kler off the film due to their on-set dis­agree­ments. Hanks re­port­edly found Win­kler to be an­noy­ing.

In 2012, Win­kler said he and Hanks had a frosty re­la­tion­ship dur­ing their 13 days to­gether.

“Let’s just say I got along bet­ter with Hooch than I did with Turner,” the ac­tor said.
