Tom Hanks is providing some words of wisdom to the class of 2023. On Thursday, the 66-year-old actor delivered the commencement address at Harvard University, and channeled his signature wit and expert storytelling while doing so.Hanks began by playfully offering a bit of a dig at the graduating class, telling them, «It's not fair, but please don't be embittered by this fact: that without having done a lick of work, without having spent any time in class, without once walking into that library in order to have anything to do with the graduating class, Harvard, its faculty, or its distinguished alumna, I make a damn good living playing someone who did.

It's the way of the world, kids.»Hanks, of course, was alluding to his role as Robert Langdon, a Harvard University professor of religious iconology and symbology, in ,  and Inferno.

Hanks continued by addressing his mere semesters at community state college, his attendance at the School of Hard Knocks, and joking, «I don't know much about Latin, I have no real passion for enzymes, and public global policy is something I scan in the newspaper just before I do the Wordle.

And yet here I am.»There he was indeed, and thus began the crux of his speech; superheroes aren't real and won't do the hard work of saving our planet, instead, that's up to us.«We, here, in the stands look at you all in the caps and the gowns and we hope, ah, at last, help is on the way.
