Tom Hanks has worked in Hollywood for decades — but never with disgraced movie mogul Harvey Weinstein. Still, he joined the onslaught of celebrities who have spoken out against the embattled executive, who is reportedly going to rehab to treat sex addiction.

During an interview with the New York Times Thursday, Hanks was asked why the entertainment industry seemingly protected a man that allegedly sexually assaulted women.

“Well, that's a really good question and isn't it part and parcel to all of society somehow, that people in power get away with this?” Hanks said. “Look, I don't want to rag on Harvey but so obviously something went down there.”

Hanks wasn’t persuaded by Wesintein’s statement that it was the “culture” when he grew up.

“You can't buy, ‘Oh, well, I grew up in the '60s and '70s and so therefore. ...’ I did, too,” Hanks said. “So I think it's like, well, what do you want from this position of power? I know all kinds of people that just love hitting on, or making the lives of underlings some degree of miserable, because they can.”

“Just because you're rich and famous and powerful doesn't mean you aren't in some ways a big fat a--,” Hanks said.

He then corrected himself.

“Excuse me, take away ‘fat,’” the “Forrest Gump” star said. “But I'm not, you know, I'm not the first person to say Harvey's a bit of an a--. Poor Harvey — I'm not going to say poor Harvey, Jesus. Isn't it kind of amazing that it took this long?”

Hollywood director Quentin Tarantino had a response that some deemed strange. “For the last week I've been stunned and heartbroken about the revelations that have come to light about my friend of 25 years, Harvey Weinstein. I need a few more days to process my pain, emotions , anger and memory and then I'll speak publicly about it,” he said.

The message was shared by actress Amber Tamblyn. “Last night I had a long dinner with my friend Quentin Tarantino. He has asked me to share a statement with you regarding Harvey Weinstein,” she wrote Thursday.
