Tom Hanks' wife Rita Wilson explains seemingly angry moment at Cannes, reveals the truth behind photos


Rita Wilson is setting the record straight about a photograph that landed her husband Tom Hanks in the hot seat. The moment, captured on the Cannes Film Festival red carpet Tuesday, shows Hanks appearing to speak angrily with a staffer.


However, Wilson said the moment between Hanks and the staffer was not what it seemed.

"This is called I can’t hear you. People are screaming. What did you say? Where are we supposed to go?" Wilson explained in an Instagram story."But that doesn’t sell stories! Nice try," Wilson added. "Go see Asteroid City!"

Despite the incident, the “That Thing You Do!” co-stars continued their trek down the red carpet, posing for more pictures.

GCT has reached out to Hanks’ rep for comment but did not immediately hear back.

The couple’s outing comes nearly a month after he and Wilson, also 66, celebrated their 35th wedding anniversary.
