                            Tom Hanks and Henry Winkler have secretly been feuding for 30 years after falling out on sets of 'Turner & Hooch'

Tom Hanks may be known as one of the "nicest" Hollywood celebrities and his "goody man" roles in films like 'Forrest Gump', 'Castaway' and 'Toy Story' only make that belief stronger.

However, the reality seems to be quite different as the actor reportedly snubbed a fellow actor and has been involved in a secret feud going back to the 1980s. 

Henry Winkler, who played The Fonz in 'Happy Days' and Gene Cousineau in 'Barry', threw some shade at the actor when he was quizzed about his experience of working with Hanks on Bravo's 'Watch What Happens Live With Andy Cohen'. 

On the show, a caller asked him, "What was the real reason why you and Tom Hanks didn't get along on the set of 'Turner & Hooch,' and did you ever wind up seeing that movie?"

Visibly surprised, Cohen was quick to cross-question as he said, "Is that a thing?" Trying to dodge the fan question, Winkler playfully put his hand to his ear and said, "What did you say?" 

"I was directing that movie for 13 days, and then I was called into Jeff Katzenberg's (chairman of Walt Disney Studios at the time) office. And he said, 'Do you have everything with you? Go home,'" the actor revealed.

Cohen was shocked at the revelation and said, "No!"

Winkler refused to comment on his relationship with Hanks and said that he shared a great bond with his four-legged co-star, "I got along great with that dog. Love that dog." 

When Cohen asked if he watched the film when it released, Winkler responded, "I don't remember the title of that movie."

Winkler's statements make it clear that it is still a sensitive topic for Winkler even after 30 years.

Roger Spottiswoode replaced Winkler in the film after he was fired. The 1989 film centered around Detective Scott Turner, played by Hanks and his crime-solving dog, Hooch, as they investigate a murder.
