Tom Hanks Angrily Confronts Fans After They Push His Wife

Footage has emerged showing Tom Hanks shouting at an aggressive group of fans and telling them to 'back the f**k' off in order to protect his wife. You can watch the clip below:

The 65-year-old actor was enjoying a night out with his wife Rita Wilson, 65, on Wednesday (15 June) when they were mobbed by a crowd outside of a restaurant in New York.

As is shown in the video, the pair calmly walk towards their car as the fans rush to take pictures and talk to the Hollywood star.

But things take a sour turn amid the scuffle when one of the group gets too close to Wilson and nearly knocks her over.

She shrieks and says 'stop it' before Hanks steps in. After checking his wife is okay, he turns to the crowd with his hands in the air and says: "Back the f**k off... knocking over my wife."

You know it's a bad day when Tom Hanks is pissed off with you.

The crowd were certainly apologetic, with one saying 'sorry about that' and another shouting 'come on' to the other fans.

Instead of sticking around to hear their apologies, the couple continue their journey and jump into their car as the sheepish looking crowd stands back and watches them leave.

Numerous people have taken to social media to comment on the incident, with one writing: "You don't mess around with Sheriff Woody!"

Another said: "Imagine being shouted at by Tom Hanks. I would simply never recover."

"I’ve always loved Tom Hanks but seeing him rush to protect his wife," wrote a third alongside a series of heart emojis.

Earlier this month, Hanks touched upon his previous work as one of the biggest names in Hollywood ahead of the release of Elvis, a biopic in which he stars as the singer's shadowy talent manager, Col. Tom Parker.

One role he discussed was that of Professor Robert Langdon in The Da Vinci Code, based on Dan Brown's book of the same name.

Although the 2006 film proved successful enough to spark two sequels, the actor admitted in an interview with The New York Times that the franchise was, to be blunt, nonsense.

"Oh, God, that was a commercial enterprise," he said after being asked whether making the sequels was 'a little cynical'.

He continued: "Yeah, those Robert Langdon sequels are hooey. The Da Vinci Code was hooey. I mean, Dan Brown, God bless him, says, 'Here is a sculpture in a place in Paris! No, it’s way over there. See how a cross is formed on a map? Well, it’s sort of a cross.'"

Hanks went on to describe the movies as 'delightful scavenger hunts that are about as accurate to history as the James Bond movies are to espionage', but argued they are not 'cynical'.

He added: "They brought me a birthday cake in the Grand Salon! Who gets to have that experience? Any cynicism there? Hell no!"
