A number of individuals approached Tom Hanks and his wife Rita Wilson as they walked toward their car in New York City on Wednesday night. When one fan went too near to the famous pair, causing Wilson to tumble, they were encircled by guards.
As the 65-year-old actress recovered her footing and shouted, “Stop it,” her husband of 34 years spun around and raised his hands to the crowd. He then told the supporters to “back the f*ck off” his wife, motioning them to do so. “Knocking over my wife?” the two-time Oscar winner continued before turning around and following Wilson into the car, according to accounts.

“If anything, this makes me adore Tom Hanks more,” said another admirer, BillBabeaux. He’s not a bowl of pudding, but a real person who can get irritated (and even his outburst is restrained). I’m going to rewatch all of his movies now, thanks!”

“But honestly, have you ever heard photographers collectively apologise and relax like that?” Reddit user CampJanky wrote.
They usually scent blood in the water and trick the celebrity into seeing crimson. But the embarrassment of upsetting Tom Hanks swiftly shifted them back into Human Being mode.” “It’s like getting reprimanded by America’s father,” Regoapps joked.
Wilson and Hanks just marked their 34th wedding anniversary on April 30th. Wilson posted a snapshot from their 1988 wedding captured on film with the caption “34th. 1988-2022.” The Girls star also posted the shot to her Instagram Story, which was put to the music of her song, The Best Days of Our Lives.
They married in 1988 and have 2 kids, Chester “Chet” Hanks and Truman Theodore Hanks. Hanks and Wilson initially met on the set of ABC’s comedy Bosom Buddies in 1981, before co-starring in the 1985 film Volunteers. They began as pals since Hanks wedded his college love, Samantha Lewes, when he was only 21 years old; Hanks wedded Lewes in 1978 and divorced in 1987. The Toy Story star wedded Wilson about a year later, and the rest is history.
