Chet Hanks was at the Golden Globes on Sunday (January 5) as his father, Tom Hanks, was set to receive the Cecil B. DeMille Lifetime Achievement award, and Chet stirred controversy with a video from the red carpet.
Hanks began his acceptance speech by joking about his early career stint on the 1970s TV comedy "The Love Boat" and saying that he had a bad cold that had made him particularly emotional.
In her speech to Tom, the 44-year-old actress said that growing up as an 8-year-old in South Africa her three most prized possessions were her ballet shoes, her pet goat, and her VHS cassette of the film Splash starring Tom.

"A man is blessed with a family sitting down front like that", he said.
"I've been around the world, to handsome places in the world, none of them tops Greece". Five kids who are braver and stronger and wiser than their old man is.
As the camera focused on his wife and children who were visibly moved by his words, he added: 'I can't tell you how much your love means to me'. Course otherwise, I wouldn't be standing here if they didn't have to put up with that. This time around, people are just cringing hard at how he butchered his Patois accent with one fan writing, "Tom Hanks is so damn unproblematic, and yet...dis child". The most recent project clip was from A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood, for which Hanks had a Golden Globe nomination. "Do I have to pay taxes or can I just pay cash and avoid all that?"
Recalling the audition Charlize said: "I remember after my first read I thought I completely blew it".
