Tom Hanks, 'The Daily Show with Jon Stewart'When you talk to celebrities multiple times as the host of your own late night show, sometimes it's fun to just ask the most inane questions you can think of. Craig Ferguson has built a whole show around it.

But it was Jon Stewart on 'The Daily Show' (Weeknights, 11PM ET on Comedy Central) who asked Tom Hanks the following question.

"In your experience, and I think this is very important, the best smelling actor that you've worked with?"

It was Hanks' own fault for saying that Julia Roberts smelled great in their current project, 'Larry Crowne.' But it wasn't Roberts he declared the best smelling.

"I am going to say Kevin Bacon," he said after a moment of reflection. "'Cause on 'Apollo 13' we were really jammed in."

Now Stewart assumed it was a joke based around Bacon's name, but Hanks was in fact quite sincere. "I think he smells a little mix of baby powder and Listerine," he said. Kind of makes you want to sidle up next to Bacon and take in a big whiff to see if Hanks is right.

If smell-o-vision really is making a comeback in theaters, we can only hope there will be a Kevin Bacon scent for us to scratch and sniff along with Tom Hanks.
