During the show Hanks talked Jimmy Kimmel into showing a clip from his appearance on the popular show “Toddlers & Tiaras.” During the episode, Hanks discussed his experience with trying to help his “daughter” Sophie win the “Ultimate Sexy Baby Nevada Pageant.”
During the skit Hanks is seen giving Sophie detailed lessons on how to walk and properly apply her makeup.
