Tom Hanks took steroids

hanks Speaking on The Late Show with David Letterman, Tom Hanks revealed that he was on steroids for two performances on Broadway. The actor got a severe cold so his showing up on the stage was endangered. In order to make it through the play (Lucky Guy by Nora Ephron) he had to take steroids his doctor prescribed him.

Tom told Letterman: ”Say you have a cold and it happens now and it sweeps through the theatrical community. The cast of ‘Pippin’ goes down … you have to go see the magic doctor. And then she puts you on the juice.”

But you do get back on that horse and you are on stage and you feel great! I was on steroids for two performances, never felt better in my life, came off the show was tighter, it was quicker … I just blew through the performance feeling like a million bucks. I felt like I was 23 again,” Hanks said.
