  • In 1988, Tom Hanks married actress Rita Wilson, with whom he costarred in the film 'Volunteers'. They have two sons, Chester and Truman. Hanks may have figured out the formula for a successful blockbuster. But when it comes to his marriage, the secret to his successful union with Rita Wilson – 27 years and counting – remains something of a mystery.

    "I wish there was a secret, you know," Hanks, 59, said at the Outfest Legacy Awards in LA. "We just like each other. You start there."

    "I still can't believe my wife goes out with me," Hanks said. "If we were in high school and I was just funny, I'd never have the courage to talk to her."

    "They say it must be hard work. No it's not," Hanks said. "Every now and again you know, you gotta get over some stuff but life is one damn thing after another and its actually more pleasant to be able to go home with someone you like to spend time with in order to get with it."

    "No one should get married before they're 30," he declared.

    "When we first looked at each other there was definitely a kind of (pointing to camera), 'Hey, this is the place!' I felt that anyway," he said. "I think the end result is that we got married for all the right reasons."

    Rita Wilson has gone on the record about the 'amazing care' she received from husband Tom Hanks following her breast cancer diagnosis and surgery.

    'Who knew it would make you even closer?' she said.
