Hollywood star Tom Hanks made a PR faux-pas while being quizzed about his latest film The Ladykillers at the Cannes Film Festival earlier this week (begs17MAY04).

When asked why he joined filmmakers the Coen Brothers on the project, the multiple OSCAR winner, 47, said, "Their movies are so uncomprehensible (sic)...uh...I mean uncompromising."

This isn't the first gaffe by the actor who had beforehand stunned reporters at the French industry bash by describing red carpet events as "awful".
