The 58-year-old actor made one lucky New York cab driver’s day when he gave the two-time Oscar winner a lift.
Proving he really is the nicest and most down-to-earth celeb in Hollywood, the Captain Phillips star lived up to his great guy reputation, sparking up a conversation with his cabbie, who later shared his amazing story via social media.
“I'm driving down Park Avenue one day and this guy waves for me, so I pull over and I ask him where he's going," the driver explains.
"He tells me 74th street, and I tell him that's too far for me, because my shift just ended, so he says 'thanks anyway' and walks away.
"But then I think about it, and I start feeling bad for the guy...So I call him back to the cab and tell him to hop in. And he gets in the car all excited, all animated, and he's talking about all these things."
After a few words were exchanged, it wasn’t long before the driver realised it was Mr Hanks in the backseat.
“He's got his cap pulled down way over his eyes, so I can't see who it is. But pretty soon I start to recognize his voice. And when we get to a light, I turn to him, and I look him in the eye, and I scream: "WIIIIIIILLLSSSSSOOOOOOON!!!" And that really got him. He started laughing hard. He sees that I've got this Ferrari hat on, and a Ferrari shirt too, so he starts calling me 'Mr. Ferrari.' So after we get to his destination, we snap a quick photo, and he goes on his way."
But this wouldn’t be that last time the duo would meet.
Tom later made contact with 'Mr Ferrari' and invited him to one of his Broadway show's. What a lucky guy!
