10 Things You Didn't Know About Tom Hanks

We really really really really really really like you, Tom Hanks.

If you haven't seen it already, put this on on your to-do list for today: Tom Hanks features in popstar Carly Rae Jepsen's new music video I Really Like You, and wow, do you need to make time to watch it. The video basically just comprises Tom Hanks walking around doing what he does best - looking like a bit of goon, having a great time and making people happy. It's bound to brighten up your day, and is not one to be missed. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qV5lzRHrGeg And it's not the only thing the actor has done in recent months which has made loyal fans smile. Earlier this year he went on James Corden's Late Late Show, and together the two of them reenacted all of Hanks' films in under eight minutes. The end result is amazing: the only downfall is we weren't there to see it live. Not afraid to have a laugh at himself, along with featuring in a long line of critically acclaimed films and having played some fantastic roles in his acting career, Tom Hanks is one of the finest individuals to come out of Hollywood. He's kind of like that dad you see at family discos who's always up on the dance floor, willing to make a bit of a fool out of himself in order to provide some light entertainment (that's not to say his acting roles haven't been serious - anyone who's seen Castaway or The Green Mile will know that his role in those is as far from foolish as anything). Here are ten facts about the American actor and producer which, if anything, should make him even more endearing to you than he already is.

I love Stephen King and music festivals; I eat my toast upside down; I daydream about getting married probably a bit too much; and I wish every day for a pet sausage dog puppy (who never materialises – sob).
