Footage has surfaced of Tom Hanks yelling at fans who nearly knocked his wife Rita Wilson over as they tried to get selfies and autographs with the famous couple.
In the video, which was recorded in New York, Hanks, 65, and Wilson, 65, can be seen walking toward a car while being followed by fans with phones outstretched.
As Hanks and Wilson approach their car, one person appears to bump into another fan walking directly behind Wilson. The man is then pushed into her and she trips.
Then Wilson is seen turning around and yelling, “Stop that.”
A visibly angry Hanks then storms forward, ordering fans to “back off,” and berating them for “knocking my wife out.”
As the pair get into a car that’s waiting for them, embarrassed fans are heard yelling behind them and saying, “Sorry, Tom.”
The Independent has reached out to Hanks and Wilson reps for comment.
Hanks stars in Baz Luhrmann’s new biopic elvisin which he stars as the singer’s manager, Colonel Tom Parker.

Warner Bros was forced to halt production on the biopic after Hanks and Wilson became two of the first celebrities to test positive for coronavirus when the 2020 pandemic hit the US.
elvis hits UK cinemas on June 24th.
