After host Stephen Colbert explained to Hanks that many people trust him, including his co-star (Streep), Hanks playfully rolled his eyes and said, "You mean, can I just say, high-maintenance Meryl Streep?"
Wanting more, Colbert asked, "Oh really? Diva?"
To which Hanks jokingly replied, "Look, the shoes alone, man. No, I am so joking."
But turns out, the Oscar-winning actress doesn't get any special treatment.
Putting on a voice, he continued, "You expect a guy in livery to come out, 'Ladies and gentlemen, the actress known as Meryl Streep.' And she comes in and waves to the crew the way the royals used to."
The film tells the story of Ben Bradlee (Hanks) and Katharine Graham (Streep), and Graham's decision to publish the Pentagon Papers in 1971, at the risk of losing her family-owned newspaper.
