It comes after her son Chet revealed he was sent to a wilderness camp in Utah in 2008 when he was dealing with addiction issues as a high school student.
The 32-year-old rapper/actor, who appeared on the Ivan Paychecks podcast last week, recalled waking up one day to see some big men standing next to his bed, ready to take him to camp.
Chet, the son of Tom Hanks and Rita, both 66, described the turn of events: “Bald heads, like military men who look like bouncers, you know? And I’m like, “What the f***? What the f*** is going on?” They say, “You’re coming with us – we can do this the easy way or the hard way.”‘
Chet, who has appeared on shows like Empire and Shameless, said he was taken on a nine-hour drive to southern Utah where he lived “roofless” and did manual labor.

He described the activities he did during his time at the Utah wilderness camp, saying that he “was there longer than anyone else.”
Chet continued, “They just made us walk in circles with an 80-pound backpack. There’s a lot going through your head.’
The famous descendants noted that he was “under observation” during the time in the camp and said that the staffers there were “psychoanalyzing you and tearing you apart.”
Chet said he felt his parents were “manipulated all the time” because the camp charged them an expensive daily rate.

He said the facility’s organizers viewed the Hollywood stars as “whales” who possessed the “resources to” keep him in the facility for a “damned long time.”
Said Chet, “I was there longer than anyone I’d seen come or go in the entire program, except for one kid who was there for six months.”
Chet said he learned to lean on faith and found comfort in being alone.
“When you’ve got nothing to occupy yourself with… except dead silence, a week feels like a month,” Chet said.
Chet took to Instagram on Sept. 13 to declare that he had been sober for an entire year.
He said, ‘All in. The decision was final. Never going back to that shit. Ever. This is just the beginning. Today could be the day that changes your life forever.”
Chet made headlines earlier this year when he said he didn’t grow up with a “strong male role model” in a YouTube video titled “The Truth About Growing Up as a Hanks.”
He said in the February clip, “I didn’t have a strong male role model to tell me, ‘Bro, f*** these people, they’re just jealous of you.'”
