Tom Hanks again proves why he’s everyone’s favourite celeb after gatecrashing wedding and posing for pictures

Tom Hanks has proven once more why he’s everyone’s favourite Hollywood celeb after he gatecrashed a wedding - and asked if he could get a photo with the newlyweds.

In footage posted online, the actor can be seen chatting with guests on a beach by the Santa Monica Pier in California on Friday 22 October where the wedding of Diciembre and Tashia Farries took place.

Surprised to see the A-lister casually on the beach, guests can be heard shouting, “That’s Woody!” in reference to the famous character Hanks voiced in the Disney film series Toy Story.

Hanks asks the guests: “Is the groom around?” and was then told that the wedding had taken place between the two women, and in response, he exclaimed: “Oh get out, my stock just exploded!” as the crowd erupted into laughter.

The video then shows the newlyweds posing with their 1-year-old son, August, for a photo with Hanks.

The photos have since been posted on Tashia’s Instagram where they have received a lot of love.

Unsurprisingly, the happy couple were taken aback when they realised the Forrest Gump star had gatecrashed their celebrations.

“We were so in our own moment so for him to walk up, it was shocking and took a second for us to realize. It was the cherry on top for our big day,” Diciembre told TODAY.

“He said he noticed the ceremony and gave us many compliments and just said we looked beautiful,” Tashia said. “He gave us love advice and was just so positive and humble.”

However, it’s not the first time that Hanks has gatecrashed a wedding.

The 65-year-old previously posed for photos at a wedding in Central Park in 2016.

While in 2018, Hanks surprised a couple from Alabama by responding to their wedding invitation.

Unfortunately, he wasn’t able to make the ceremony, but Hanks ended up inviting the pair to attend a play he was starring in that summer.

Elsewhere in 2017, Hanks helped with a surprise proposal during a Q&A session for his book.

Tom should start taking bookings at this rate.
