Updated 6 months ago

On a recent visit to The Late Late Show with James Corden, Josh Hutcherson told a story he had kept under wraps for years. After his experience working on Future Man, Hutcherson finally felt ready to share a secret from one of his first acting roles, the main character of The Polar Express

While working opposite Tom Hanks, Hutcherson made a mistake he'll never forget:

The incident would haunt him:

It was motion capture so we had these dots on our face and these weird wetsuit things. It’s very, very odd experience. ... I was shooting this scene with Tom Hanks, the father of the world. And we’re shooting this scene where he’s playing the hobo and he’s on top of the train and he's like skiing down and I’m like nestled in under him, and we're like, ‘Whoa this is crazy.’ And I was like... I farted.

Here's the scene where it all happened:

And how did Tom Hanks, beloved American icon, respond to being farted on?

Instead of playing it cool, Tom Hanks was like, ‘Whoa whoa, Oh my God,  this kid — What the heck? Oh my God!’

He was embarrassed about it for years, but Hutcherson now looks back on it as a sort of career milestone:

It was a rite of passage I feel and he did in good humor. Looking back on it, it was very funny. But at that moment I thought my face was going to start sweating blood.
