With the rate at which Hollywood couples dissolve, it’s nice to see a pair of stars who have withstood the test of time.
30 years ago, double Oscar winner Tom Hanks and My Big Fat Greek Wedding actress Rita Wilson said “I do.”
The couple initially met on the set of Bosom Buddies in the early 80s while Tom was still with his first wife Samantha Lewes, with whom he has 2 children—Life in Pieces actor Colin Hanks and journalist Elizabeth Hanks.
Following his divorce in 1987, The Post star converted to Greek Orthodoxy—the religion in which Rita was raised—prior to their marriage in 1988.
Three decades and two kids (Chet and Truman) later, Mr. and Mrs. Hanks have much reason to celebrate their happy union.
And so, the couple held a party on Saturday night which was filled with Hollywood alumni, including fellow couple Goldie Hawn and Kurt Russell, Tom’s hockey pal Martin Short, talk show hosts Conan O’Brien and Jimmy Kimmel, the almighty Oprah Winfrey, and even former President of the United States Barack Obama.
Here’s to another 30!
