Rita Wilson and Tom Hanks put on loved-up display at The Post premiere after 30 years of marriage
The term 'couple goals' is thrown around a lot, but Tom Hanks are Rita Wilson are worthy recipients of the title.
After nearly years of marriage, this Hollywood power couple are more in love than ever and letting the world know as they continue to promote Hanks' role in buzzy awards season film The Post. At Wednesday night's premiere in London, they happily posed on the red carpet, holding hands, linking arms and hugging as they beamed by each other's side.
It's been a busy week for the couple, who have travelled thousands of miles for three different events in recent days including the Golden Globes in Los Angeles on Sunday, the National Board of Review Awards Gala in New York on Tuesday and last night's European premiere in the UK, alongside Meryl Streep, who also stars in the film and director Steven Spieldberg.
The pair, who wed in 1988, are often considered to have one of the most rock-solid marriages around, something the Oscar-winning actor has proudly declared on more than one occasion.
"Rita and I are blessed because we really like each other and we always have. We weather a storm here and there, it's no big deal, you can get past it," he told 60 Minutes in 2016.
He added that if they had met when they were younger, they wouldn't be together today.
"I told her long ago, 'If you and I were at the same high school I wouldn't have had the courage to speak to you'. Too vivacious, too beautiful, too popular - everything - too upbeat, too positive.'
"To her credit my wife said, 'If we had gone to school at the same time, I would've had nothing to do with you."'
Hanks was previously married to Samanta Lewes for nine years before divorcing in 1987 and has two children - Colin and Elizabeth - from his first marriage. He and Rita have two children - Chet and Truman - together.
In 2015, he gushed to Entertainment Tonight that their first introduction wasn't quite love at first sight, but a lightbulb moment for him.
"When we first looked at each other there was definitely a kind of, 'Hey, this is the place!' I felt that anyway. I think the end result is that we got married for all the right reasons."
Wilson, who underwent a double mastectomy after being diagnosed with breast cancer in 2015, also praised her husband for his support, telling the New York Times, "Who knew it would make you even closer?"
