10 Things You Didn’t Know About Tom Hanks and Rita Wilson’s Relationship
8. Relationship Beginnings
When the Philadelphia star worked with Wilson on the set of Volunteers, their attraction was undeniable, and even though Hanks at the time was married, his marriage was already broken. The two began dating and took their relationship public at the 1986 premiere of Three Amigos.
In 1987, Hanks’ divorce from Lewes was finalized, and the following year, he and Wilson were married. According to the actor, one of the reasons why their marriage works is because they accept each other and love each other unconditionally. “It was a complete and utter kind of acceptance of me on her part,” Hanks said. “It was a love that was unconditional.” In an interview with Good Morning America, Wilson conveyed the same sentiment. “He told me, ‘You know, you never have to change anything about who you are or what you do to be with me,’” she said.
