In a way, TOM HANKS having Type 2 diabetes made him even MORE lovable, because it reinforced his “regular guy-ness”.  And like everyone else, he’s now cursing himself for letting it happen.


In a new interview, he said, quote, “I’m part of the lazy American generation that has blindly kept dancing through the party and now finds ourselves with a malady.  I was heavy . . . I was a total idiot.”



“I thought I could avoid it by removing the buns from my cheeseburgers.  Well, it takes a little bit more than that.”



But it’s not all bad news.  His doctor gave him a target weight to hit, and if he does, he won’t have diabetes anymore.



Tom is 59.  He revealed that he was diabetic on “Letterman” in 2013.
