Spouses Tom Hanks, 65, and Rita Wilson, 65, were leaving a New York restaurant last night when they were occupied by fans and photographers. While she was going to the car, Wilson tripped and nearly fell, sparking a protective instinct in the otherwise calm Hanks.
'My wife?! Get the f... out! Will you overthrow my wife?!,' shouted the famous Oscar winner.

After dinner in Manhattan, the couple headed to the car. A large group of people formed around them and they did not give up. They approached closer and closer until one man got too close and collided with Rita Wilson. Because of this, she briefly lost her balance and stumbled, but she managed to stay on her feet.
'Stop it!' she shouted at the man and raised her hands in the air. Hanks first went to see if Rita was okay. He then turned to the crowd and angrily and vulgarly warned them to stay away from his wife. The couple quickly ran to the car.
The clumsy fan apologized, but Hanks and Wilson either didn’t hear or didn't want to respond. The couple has been married for 34 years and they have two sons, Chet (31) and Truman (25). They met on the set of the ABC sitcom Bosom Buddies in 1981. At first, they were friends, and only later they fall in love and became a couple.
Prior to the incident and dinner, they were at a screening of Elvis, a biographical film about legendary singer Elvis Presley. In that film, Hanks plays singer-songwriter, Tom Parker.
Earlier in the day, Hank was walking alone in Manhattan. Due to his skinny body, he hid with a wide T-shirt, journalists and fans are expressing concern for the actor's health. The worries began after Hanks was constantly shaking his hand during a promotional interview for a new film. Earlier this month in Brisbane, he appeared at a screening with director Baz Luhrmann and colleague Austin Butler.
