Tom Hanks’ wife dismisses talk she and the actor had row with PR manager on Cannes red carpet
Tom Hanks’ wife has dismissed reports she and the actor had a row with a PR manager on a Cannes Film Festival red carpet.
The ‘Big’ actor, 66, and his actress spouse of 35 years were photographed apparently looking irate as Tom pointed a finger at a man who has been named as Vincent Chapalain while they attended the premiere of his new film ‘Asteroid City’ on Tuesday. (23.05.23)
Rita – and Vincent – have now brushed off speculation they were rowing by saying it was simply a discussion about where they were meant to be going while crowds of fans were screaming so loudly they could barely hear.
The ‘Sleepless in Seattle’ actress captioned a screenshot of the exchange on an Instagram Story with the message: “This is called ‘I can’t hear you. People are screaming. What did you say? Where are we supposed to go?’
“But that doesn’t sell stories! Nice try. Go see ‘Asteroid City’!”
Vincent backed her version of events when someone asked him on his Twitter page what had gone on.
The person asked: “Did Tom Hanks and Rita Wilson get confuse with security? An explanation?”
Vincent replied: “They just asked me if they should go back to the start of the mat with the rest of the film crew (I’m not security) wink.”
Speculation had been rife Tom had lost his cool as he was pictured looking stern and pointing at Vincent.
The exchange lasted only moments as the couple walked the red carpet.
It came nearly a month after the long-time pair celebrated their 35th wedding anniversary.
Tom, who has sons Chet, 32, and Truman, 27, with Rita, posted a snap of him giving her a cake with the message: “35 years of marriage. April 30, 1988. Love is everything.”
Tom also has son Colin, 45, and daughter Elizabeth, 41, from his previous marriage to his college sweetheart, Samantha Lewes.
