2Aston villa, my boy!!!

3Emmy, get on my car, babe
Seriously, only Hanks can pull this off. He taped his Emmy award to his car and even drove! Cool, hot? More adjectives, please!
4Link with Lincoln
We really knew that it had to be the awesome genes, didn’t we? He is a relative (very distant) of the legendary Abraham Lincoln. Who cares, if he is the third cousin (four times removed) of the president, we think the royalty (or loyalty) runs in the genes.
We all can’t stop raving about how awesome that movie is. Well, Tom Hanks has a little different story to share. He believes the making of this movie was serious exhausting and it did drain him. Thankfully, the success kept him going at least.
6Cab driver, be my guest
We all know the Hanks has a heart of god. This was proved even further when he invited a little obscure cab driver to his broadways show. Get me napkins, these happy tears are ruining my mascara. Hanks, oh Hanks!
7I am not my favourite
Hanks is definitely not snobbish. He doesn’t have his own favourite movie and often makes fun of himself. You need to be Hanks to do it, don’t you!
8Weather time? Dance moves!
He once did a real crazy dance on a weather channel. Well; we can tell for sure, the temperature must have really risen very high for the ladies in the showroom. Mr. Tom Hanks is so hot!!
9Get out of the closet in style
Only Mr. Hanks could do this. He outed one of his school teacher in his epic Oscar speech and the teacher later joined an organization of gay teachers. Speeches and Hanks make an awesome combination, don’t you think?
10Fan, Fear, Frenzy?
Like all big celebrities; he had his share of creepy (cute?) fan stories. There are fans that often go overboard with their love. An American couple had a whole thanksgiving celebration dedicated to Hanks’ works. Sigh, the lives of actors and Hanks! Hilarious or creepy? Well, pick yourself!
