The renowned American actress, Rita Wilson, opened up about her enviable marriage to Tom Hanks which has lasted for over thirty years.


These Hollywood personalities, Tom Hanks and Rita Wilson, are a paradigm of impossibility becoming possible. Their love story started over three decades ago, and has managed to stand the test of time.


In an interview with "Us Weekly", Rita talked about her long-lasting relationship with her husband.

“We Got Married, we committed to each other, we love each other, and we work hard at our relationship…not only do we love each other, we really like each other, and we like being together, and we support each other, and we keep the communication channels open. That’s always important.”


She also complimented her husband, Tom Hanks, as she flashed back on their past life in Hollywood.

“This town has allowed me to pursue my dreams, in my own backyard. It has led me to the love of my life, Tom Hanks, and it has brought me the blessings of our children, Chet, Truman, Colin and his wife, Samantha, my daughter, Elizabeth, and our granddaughters, Michaiah, Charlotte and Olivia.”

The 62-year-old was honored at the Star Ceremony of the Hollywood “Walk of Fame” on March 29, 2019, in Hollywood, California. She stated that her "Walk of Fame" star was almost the same as the "Toy Story 4" actor.


When delivering his speech, Tom Hanks extolled his wife's acting career, saying:

“The roles in stage and film and television just kept finding her, and she inhabited characters and charmed audiences and stole scenes from those of the stars in the movies, and has a highlight reel that any of us would envy.”

Tom and Rita's admiration for each other goes beyond words and speeches, they have exemplified a lifestyle that is worthy of emulation. In an industry that is known for its frail marriages and high rate of divorce, one cannot but give them kudos for defying the norm and staying strong.
