Tom Hanks comes to bride’s rescue

Tom Hanks filming at the PantheonWhile filming Angels & Demons in Rome this week, Tom Hanks stopped the cameras when he noticed a bride in distress. The crew and film equipment were blocking the entrance to the Pantheon (a Christian church and the oldest standing domed structure in Rome), where the bride was to be married, so Hanks went out of his way to halt production and personally escort the young lady and her father inside. He not only offered the bride his arm, but held up her long veil to keep it from trailing on the ground. Once his good deed was done, Hanks got back to work with co-star Ayelet Zurer in the sequel to The Da Vinci Code, in which Robert Langdon and a scientist named Vittoria join forces to keep the deadly ancient brotherhood known as the Illuminati from killing the next Pope.

    I must say Tom Hanks is one of the best actors around and seems like a really good person…and cannot wait to see Angels and Demons I read The Da Vinci Code right after seeing the movie and the book was so much better and then read Angels and Demons right after and that book was even better than The Da Vinci Code…so I am extremely excited to see the movie…and am so glad that Tom Hanks is doing the sequel…He’s awesome…I wish they would do another Forrest Gump..that’s the best movie…

    What a gentleman. He is one of the few in Hollywood who seems like a real, down to earth person.
    Love ya, Tom!
