Rumors have spread for years that Henry Winkler and Tom Hanks do not like each other. Their rumored feud started when Henry got fired as the director on Turner & Hooch. Reports say that Tom was part of the reason that Henry ended up getting fired from the project. This was way back in 1989.

In October of last year, Henry appeared on the show Watch What Happens Live and hinted that they still have some issues! Henry was asked on the show about his rumored beef with Tom and he didn’t really reply. He only joked, “I loved that dog,” referring to Hooch in the movie.
