Chet Hanks has some words for Eric André after hearing what he said about him in a Rolling Stone interview earlier this week. As previously said, the former recounted his time working on his self-titled program with the controversial actor, who allegedly placed numerous members of the cast and crew in danger with his reckless behavior.
“He shattered our crew. “It felt like ‘Rust.’ He broke us down,” the Bad Trip actress said, referring to the deadly incident that occurred on the set of Alec Baldwin’s film in 2021.
“[Chet] is… emotionally disturbed. He stole a motorcycle and rode it around. He almost knocked a bunch of grips and gaffers off their ladders,” André added, specifically dishing on the incident that put Hanks in his bad book. “He’s not well. How did Colin Hanks come out so good and Chet Hanks come out so bad?” he went on, also expressing gratitude that his creative control allowed him to “edit out all [the] bullshit.”

Rather than doing an interview of his own, Hanks handled things in a much more casual manner, addressing André on his Instagram Story. According to the father of one’s version of events, he “outshined” the 39-year-old on his own show, and was just trying to match up to his “weird, outlandish, troll” characters. Elsewhere, Chet described his former collaborator as “soft” and “easily scared,” even asserting that he had no idea Eric was “such a p*ssy ?.”
Hanks later added, “There’s a lot of f*cking weirdos in Hollywood, but I didn’t think you were one of them. I thought you were funny and cool but turns out you’re just a p*ssy.” Once André got wind of this, he couldn’t help but come back with some verbal warfare of his own. “Everything Chet Hanks just said about me is a f*cking bald-faced lie,” the multi-talent insisted. “He’s a f*cking liar. And I dare him to take a f*cking DNA test and prove that Tom Hanks is his f*cking father.”
