Sitting down with Renee Zellweger for Variety's Actors on Actors interview, the 'Toy Story 4' star brings up the main issue he has with 'Judy' that covers the final months of the late legend's life.

AceShowbiz - Tom Hanks has turned movie critic and panned Renee Zellweger's Judy Garland biopic, insisting the film should have depicted more of the late legend's negative self-image.

Hanks actually brought up the film's failings during a Variety's "Actors on Actors" chat with Renee, during which the two Oscar winners also discussed his turn as beloved TV icon Fred Rogers in "A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood".

During the conversation, Hanks shared his disappointment that "Judy" didn't tackle Garland's issues with her appearance, while filming classic projects.

"I was disappointed that we didn't get to see you recreate moments from 'The Harvey Girls' or 'Meet Me in St. Louis', where - this is from reading that I did - she (Garland) had that negative self-image that she wasn't the prettiest woman in the world on camera," Hanks said. "And yet, she's the only one you look at."

"Judy" covers the final months of Garland's troubled life, during a sold out run of shows at the Talk of the Town nightclub in London.
