Rita Wilson shares sweet photo of Tom Hanks in celebration of couple’s 35th wedding anniversary

Tom Hanks and Rita Wilson are celebrating an important milestone, their 35th wedding anniversary!

The Hollywood couple celebrated 35 years of wedded bliss on April 30.

To mark the occasion, Wilson shared a photo on social media of Hanks presenting her with a cake.

“35 years of marriage. April 30, 1988. Love is everything,” she wrote.


The couple first met in 1981 while on the set of Bosom Buddies. Their relationship began as friends as Hanks was married to Samantha Lewes, his college sweetheart, at the time.

“I will say that right from the get-go, I thought there was something crazy great about her. I met her and I thought ‘Oh Lord’… there’s something cookin’ here,” the 66-year-old actor told “Sooo Many White Guys” podcast.

After two years of dating Hanks and Wilson married in 1988. The couple have two children together, Chester “Chet” Hanks and Truman Theodore Hanks.

According to Hanks and Wilson there is no secret for everlasting love.

“I wish there was a secret, you know. We just like each other. You start there… I still can’t believe my wife goes out with me. If we were in high school and I was just funny, I’d never have the courage to talk to her…” Hanks told People in 2018.

“They say it must be hard work. No, it’s not. Every now and again you know, you gotta get over some stuff but life is one damn thing after another and it’s actually more pleasant to be able to go home with someone you like to spend time with in order to get with it.”

Congratulations to Tom and Rita! Thirty-five years is a major milestone, especially in Hollywood.
