Tom Hanks, loved Oscar-winner and wedding photoshoot crasher, just solidified his place in our hearts as the greatest celebrity of all time. He is seriously the gift that keeps on giving.
Redditor yomifrackle's friend recently sent Tom Hanks some fan mail on a whim — and got a very quick response. But the actor didn't simply send an autograph or a form letter... he's too good for that.
Hanks responded to her request in the most Tom Hanks way possible — with a photo and a personalized note typed on 'Hanx' stationary.
He apologized for not sending the requested headshot, but hoped the selfie with her own photo would suffice, as his headshot was "not all that current." He gushed about her hometown of Toronto and shared his favorite songs from That Thing You Do!, a film he wrote and directed back 1996.
The note reads:
Does this count as a head shot? Sorry for the beard, but I have some shooting coming up and I must have whiskers. And, my head shot is not all that current, taken long ago and I'd come off vain sending [it] along.
Toronto, huh? Damn fine town. Growing fast, all those condo towers down on the lake. Nice view, I guess. I have not been there since one of the Film Festival dates sometime back.
Christmas just days away. Are you ready?
For the record, I still find myself humming some of the music from That Thing You Do! like you. I was always partial to the songs "Dance With Me Tonight" and "Drive Faster."
This polaroid has been developing as I have been typing. The thing is scary..."
He then concluded with an Oakland Raiders-inspired farewell: "Throw deep, always."
Tom, never, ever change. And please keep making your adoring fans' dreams come true.
