Tom Hanks appears to lose his cool on Cannes red carpet

Tom Hanks hit the red carpet for his new film Asteroid City at the Cannes Film Festival on Tuesday, but it seems as though something irked the A-lister while he was posing for photographs.

The 66-year-old Oscar winner and his wife, Rita Wilson, also 66, were seen looking rather flustered while talking to another man on the carpet and at one point during their heated conversation it seemed as though Tom was pointing in his face.

Rita’s hand was also raised and judging by Tom’s facial expression, something had gone down before the cast of Wes Anderson’s new film took their seats inside the screening room.

It’s unclear exactly what got Tom hot under the collar, but answers would be greatly appreciated.

Tom stars in 54-year-old Wes’ new film alongside the likes of Scarlett Johansson, Rupert Friend, Maya Hawke and Bryan Cranston.

Asteroid City made its world premiere at Cannes and is competing for the Palme d’Or prize.

Previous winners of the accolade have included Parasite, The Tree of Life, The Pianist and Pulp Fiction.

While Tom is widely regarded as one of the nicest people in Hollywood, he recently confessed to having his moments on set.

The actor recently released his decade-spanning debut novel, The Making of Another Motion Picture Masterpiece, which focuses on the release of a fictional multi-million-dollar superhero movie and introduces readers to the ‘colourful’ cast, including a ‘pompous film star on the rise’.

The character in the book has been described as disruptive, something that seems worlds away from Tom.

However, speaking to the BBC about his book earlier this month, he revealed that aspects of the character were similar to his own antics.

‘I have pulled every single one of those moments of behaviour myself on a set,’ the Toy Story star said. ‘Not everybody is at their best every single day on a motion picture set.

‘I’ve had tough days trying to be a professional when my life has been falling apart in more ways than one and the requirement for me that day is to be funny, charming and loving – and it’s the last way I feel.

‘What cannot occur on a motion picture is that someone cannot monkey around with the timing or the length of the shoot or the budget. That is a cardinal sin in the motion picture business.’ has reached out to Tom’s reps for comment.
