Tom Hanks Just Set the Bar Way High For Most Awesome Picture a Celeb Has EVER Taken With A Fan!
Tom Hanks. He has a reputation for being one of the nicest guys in Hollywood. If you’ve ever caught him on a talk show (especially when he’s on Conan O’Brien, their chemistry is not to be missed–take a peek here) then you know he’s funny, laid back, in on the joke and doesn’t take himself–or the crazy world of being a “public figure” too seriously. He has fun, you can tell he knows that life is too short and he’s just enjoying the ride.
But you don’t have to take my word for it. You just have to see these pictures that have become a sensation on the internet.
Let me just set this up for you. A fan runs into Tom Hanks while out (where exactly and what city has not been revealed) and has a great idea. Instead of just asking for the standard picture with an awkward pose–this fan wanted something a bit more memorable. He asked for a photo that only Tom Hanks could pull off and further cement his place as “most awesome star.”
Just take a look at this:
Okay, so what actually happened here is this fan asked Tom if he could borrow his glasses and then pretend he was passed out drunk.
Tom obliged–happily. The result? Pure genius.
Could Tom be a better sport? I assume that Tom was thinking that if this fan was crazy enough to have the guts to ask for such a memento–why should he turn him down? And that’s just reason 5,000 we love Tom so!
These pictures first popped up on Reddit and you have to check out the hilarious comments users have been leaving since about their own experiences meeting Hanx (as he signs his Tweets) and why they love him so! Read it all here!
