Tom Hanks and Rita Wilson in Cannes Festival
Tom Hanks and Rita Wilson, one of the most solid and famous couples in Hollywood, have been the protagonists of an unfortunate altercation at the 2023 Cannes Film Festival. The truth is that, in front of various photographers, the star of “Forrest Gump” and his wife were photographed in the middle of a heated discussion with a third party. This happened on Tuesday, May 23, exactly at the premiere of the movie “Asteroid City” by Wes Anderson.
As we know, Hanks plays Stanley Zak, one of the main figures in the plot. Wilson, for her part, also has a brief appearance in the feature film. It is worth noting that the film tells the story of a school contest dedicated to the observation of astronomical phenomena. In that sense, the competition is affected by some spectacular events.

Tom Hanks and Rita Wilson arrived very elegant at the ceremony: while he wore a tuxedo suit and a matching bow tie, the producer wore a beautiful black dress with a long cape. However, all was not harmony for these celebrities. Just before walking down the red carpet, to pose before the summoned photographers, they discussed with a member of the organization.
In the snapshots that have gone around the world, we see the 66-year-old actor frowning, apparently annoyed at the fight. Rita also intervenes in the confrontation, extending her hand to emphasize her point of view. In these circumstances, the young man who was speaking with the couple was trying to calm the situation.
Until the closing of this note, the reasons behind the dispute are unknown. Apparently, the altercation would not have escalated.
