On Oct. 7's The Late Show with David Letterman, the 57-year-old Captain Phillips actor revealed that he has Type 2 diabetes.
"I went to the doctor and he said, 'You know those high blood sugar numbers you've been dealing with since you were 36? Well, you've graduated. You've got Type 2 diabetes, young man,'" Hanks shared.
The trio wondered whether this diagnosis could possibly be related to an actor's need to sometimes put on and take weight for his acting roles. They also refer to Matthew McConaughey's many crash diets and binges, as well as Renée Zellweger's diet for Bridget Jones' Diary.
