Tom Hanks, Nice Guy, Popped Into A Cali In-N-Out Burger & Bought Everyone Lunch

I feel like it’s been a while since we had a good old fashioned ‘Tom Hanks seems like a real nice fella’ story. Sure, we’re always cognisant of the fact that Tom Hanks appears to be, by all accounts, a real swell guy, but it’s nice to be reminded every now and then.

This will do: on Friday, Hanks strolled into an In-N-Out Burger joint in Fontana, California, and proceeded to buy lunch for everyone, including the customers waiting the drive thru.

In a way, isn’t life just the time we spend waiting around in fast food joints for Tom Hanks to stroll in and buy us a burger? Such is the burden of mankind.

“Tom signed In-N-Out hats and took pictures with everyone,” one of the people present told E! NewsHe was genuinely nice, laughing, talking with everyone and taking selfies. He wished us a Merry Christmas on his way out.”

Hanks, who was absent from our screens throughout 2018, is set to appear in Toy Story 4Greyhound and You Are My Friend in 2019.
