Even a vacation with the former First Family, with the famous and rich media mogul Oprah Winfrey and famous singer Bruce Springsteen, can go wrong. This has been proven true by "Forrest Gump" actor Tom Hanks.

Travel & Leisure reported that the actor narrated the once-in-a-lifetime vacation to the host of "The Late Show with Stephen Colbert." The vacation was presumably well-publicized because he was surprised it was shared on social media.

He joked on the show, "Both Oprah and I were really pissed off because is this where we are in the world? Is this what's going on with social media that Oprah and I cannot go on a billionaire's boat to Tahiti with a former president of the United States and not keep it secret for God's sake?"

The award-winning actor continued that something hilarious happened on the trip to the Polynesian Island. He revealed that he got screwed in a bad way as the A-list travelers rode bikes around the island.

According to Hanks, they rented bikes but the one that was given to him was not in good condition. All of his companions including those Secret Service men left on their bikes and he said that his bike was not even good for delivering newspapers.

The audience of Stephen Colbert's show were laughing when he revealed that it was an "undersized girl's bike." Despite what happened Tom Hanks is still one lucky guy that he got the chance to have some tete-a-tete with the famous people in a beautiful yacht called The Rising Sun.

According to News, when the host of "The Oprah Winfrey Show" was asked to share about the yacht cruise with the Obamas and Hanks, she replied, "What happens on the boat stays on the boat."
