Tom Hanks Continues To Be Our Favorite Person As He Talks His Health At ‘Captain Phillips’ Premiere

October 10th, 2013 // Leave a Comment

Dear Tom Hanks, I love you.

If you haven’t been on the Tom Hanks train since before the dawn of time, then I have no idea what is wrong with you. Hopefully all these red carpets photos of Tom and his gorgeous wife Rita Wilson at the Captain Phillips premiere last night will be able to change your mind a bit.

So, did you all hear the news earlier this week that Tom has type 2 diabetes? It was quite the revelation that is putting a damper on his future movie roles. 

The thing is that doctors have told Tom his case of diabetes may have developed after years of gaining weight and losing weight for movie roles–something he doesn’t want to do anymore. He told reporters, “I’ve talked to a number of actors who have gained weight for roles and – just out of the sheer physical toll on one’s knees and shoulders – no one wants to do it again.”

Also, wanna know what food to offer Tom Hanks if he ever comes over? “Pizza is the most delightful thing ever invented, and it’s – for me – diabolically dangerous.” I get it, Tom. I get it. Launch the gallery to check out all the photos of Tom and Rita on the red carpet. Excited for Captain Phillips? Sound off in the comments!
