As Forrest Gump, Tom Hanks famously declared, "Life is like a box of chocolates." Only now it looks like he has to be extra-cautious about what sweets he pulls out of that box.
The affable two-time Oscar-winner, 57, revealed while appearing on The Late Show with David Letterman Monday night that he has been diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes, although he called the condition "controllable."
"I went to the doctor, and he said, 'You know those high blood sugar numbers you've been dealing with since you were 36? Well, you've graduated! You've got Type 2 diabetes, young man,' " Hanks told Letterman.

And the late-night war of words continues!
Following the back and forth bashing between Jimmy Kimmel, 45, and Jay Leno, 62, in 2010, Kimmel is at it again, now telling Playboy in its March issue (on newsstands Friday), "I always feel bad if I hurt anybody's feelings, but I don’t believe Jay Leno has actual feelings, and he doesn't seem to be that worried about other people's feelings."
Kimmel, who three years ago called Leno a "tattle-tale" for talking about him to Oprah Winfrey, goes on to say, "Strangely, I don't even like talking about him anymore. The only time I think about him is when I'm asked."
