The picture bewildered the internet last month even though the woman who appears in it said she could settle the confusion.
Tom Hanks has given his view on whether last month’s bewildering viral picture features him or Bill Murray.
Though the woman in the picture has said “it’s totally Bill” posing with her son, some people online remain convinced that it is definitely Hanks in the picture.

Asked about the confusion on The Graham Norton Show tonight (November 25), Hanks replied jokingly: “Well, I’ve been doing a pale imitation of Bill Murray for most of my career, so it actually works out.”
He added: “I know it’s not me because I did not take that picture! Unless I’ve had a cranial plate shift that is medicinal, that’s not me. I believe that’s Bill!”
When Norton replied that the picture still looks like him, Hanks replied: “I know – I could make that face.” Watch the actor discussing the picture – and recreating it for Norton – below.

During the interview, Hanks also described Clint Eastwood as an “intimidating” director who “treats his actors like horses”.
Hanks stars in Eastwood’s latest film Sully, already a huge hit in the US. The two-time Oscar-winning actor plays Chesley ‘Sully’ Sullenberger, the commercial airline pilot hailed an American hero after he managed to land his plane safely on New York City’s Hudson River in 2009.
