After 35 years of marriage, Tom Hanks remains enamored with Rita Wilson, the same captivating woman who captured his heart on the set of “Bosom Buddies” when they first met. In response to online detractors criticizing Wilson’s appearance as “flabby,” Hanks openly declares his love and admiration for his wife, describing her as “one of the most classically beautiful women who’s ever walked the planet Earth.”

Their enduring love story serves as a beacon of lasting affection in Hollywood, where relationships often face challenges. Hanks and Wilson’s romance began in 1981 when they crossed paths on the set of “Bosom Buddies,” a TV series in which Hanks starred. Wilson made a guest appearance as a devil worshipper who dates one of Hanks’ friends on the show.

At the time of their initial meeting, Hanks was still married to his high school sweetheart Samantha Lewes, with whom he shares a son, Colin Hanks. However, the connection between Hanks and Wilson, both of whom produced the “My Big Fat Greek Wedding” franchise, was undeniable.

“Rita and I just looked at each other and – kaboing – that was that,” recounted Hanks, known for his roles in films like “Forrest Gump.” “I asked Rita if it was the real thing for her, and it just couldn’t be denied.” In 1988, after divorcing Lewes, Hanks married Wilson, his co-star from the 1985 film “Volunteers.”

Now both 67 years old, the couple celebrated their 35th anniversary in April 2023. Over the decades, they’ve acted together in films like “Bonfire of the Vanities” and “Sleepless in Seattle,” while providing unwavering support to each other.

Wilson recalled a poignant moment in New York City, where Hanks reassured her, saying, “You never have to change anything about who you are in order to be with me.” This affirmation deeply touched her, reflecting Hanks’ consistent support and love.

In 2015, when Wilson underwent a double mastectomy and reconstruction due to breast cancer, she felt grateful for Hanks’ care and devotion. Their bond was further strengthened during their simultaneous battle with COVID-19 in 2020, which they faced together with resilience and mutual support.

During a public outing in 2022, when a fan accidentally tripped Wilson, Hanks fiercely defended her, exemplifying his protective and caring nature.
