My one Tom Hanks story. Was out West skiing. Ended up on road connecting 2 areas. Snowing like hell. Had flat tire. Get out, start doing usual. SUV pulls over, guy gets out. Damn near white out now. Both of us freezing. We get it done. At end introduce ourselves. Tom Hanks.

Once, in 2008, when Tom Hanks was shooting “Angels & Demons” in Rome by the Pantheon, a bride and her father couldn’t approach the chapel because of the hullabaloo, so Hanks stopped filming to escort them to the altar. pic.twitter.com/XcG4vaclIr

Did a month of stand in work on a film he was making. The man sat next to me, asked me about my life… it was a war movie and my brother was serving at the time. He got out a pen and sent him something. Nicest man.

A number of years ago I left my iPhone unattended in the same room as Tom Hanks. The next day, I found this photo in my camera roll. To be clear: I’ve never met him. But I do believe he is exactly who we hope he is, and I don’t want to know if I’m wrong. pic.twitter.com/TUrCarxt8N

My one Tom Hanks story. I was on the set of “A League of Their Own”. Tom was talking with one of my friends and I was just sitting there trying not to be weird while waiting for her. Being the nicest human ever, Tom makes introductions and includes me in the conversation. 😍

My Tom Hanks story. In my hometown where they were filming, a man kept walking in our neighborhood and was so nice and talked to my friends mom everyday…Tom Hanks.

Was at Detroit Tigers game. Guy behind me semi whispers “how’d that guy get on 1st”. Without looking back I said he walked. Figured it was Tom at the half inning and told him my girlfriend in BR doesn’t believe I am sitting by him. Got Tom to call gf on the phone. Incred

Gotta add my Tom Hanks story. My now husband was Tom’s personal security for his movie That Thing You Do. I tagged along as an extra once and while walking by myself to the set. Tom looked me in the eyes and asked how I was doing. My husband said he is who everyone thinks he is.

I was shocked to receive this personal reply from Tom when I offered him my deceased father’s typewriter for Tom’s typewriter collection. My dad had “smuggled” it out of Germany when he immigrated to the US as a WWII refugee. I will treasure Tom’s letter forever. pic.twitter.com/UFj6mQsCcs

My Sis and her husband met him in Florida, they said he makes you feel like you’ve known each other your whole life. That’s how everyone should make people feel.

I spent the day with Tom and Rita once. There was no pretense. There was only simple kindness, honest enjoyment and some quality dry wit.It was a very very good day.

But Tom Hanks did. He made a beeline for me and my recorder, praised my “old school” approach, answered a couple of my (likely terrible) questions and then headed inside. He’s just a nice guy.

I met @tomhanks when I was working in the mailroom as an Agent Trainee at CAA LA in 2010. I have never forgotten how kind he was to me. One of the most genuine people I have ever met.
