Long marriages in Hollywood are not common. However, Rita Wilson and Tom Hanks are the living proof that it is not impossible. They have been married for 30 years.


As a way to honor and thank her husband for being more than three decades with her, Wilson took to her Instagram account to share a throwback cardboard-cutout of their wedding day

In it, she placed an image of her and Hanks next to a more recent photo so her fans could see how different (or similar) they look. Wilson captioned the post writing the date of both pictures (April 30, 1988, and April 30, 2018) and adding that they are still in love.

During a recent interview Hanks had with People, he confessed that he still cannot believe she ‘goes out’ with him.


He added that if they were in high school, he wouldn’t have the courage to talk to her and ask her out. Hanks pointed out that there was not something like a secret for them to be together after all these years.

Then, he revealed that life was just one thing after another and that the idea of getting home to spend time with somebody he liked was pleasant.


Even though Hanks and Wilson have been married for quite a long time, she was not his first wife. In 1978, he married American actress Samantha Lewes, who gave birth to Colin and Elizabeth Hanks.

Nine years later, the couple got divorced and in 1988 Hanks married Wilson. He met her seven years before on the set of TV comedy Bosom Buddies and then got together again on the set of Volunteers.


Wilson and Hanks have welcomed to the world two children, Chester Hanks and Truman Theodore. Before marrying Wilson, Hanks converted to the Greek Orthodox Church, the religion that his wife and her family follow.

Their most recent work together was intended to be in the play Henry IV, where Hanks portrayed Sir John Falstaff. Wilson was initially announced as part of the cast, but a recent scheduling conflict prevented her participation, reported L.A. Times.
