Tom Hanks and Rita Wilson celebrated their wedding anniversary on Friday, with Rita Wilson penning a beautiful tribute to her husband on Instagram. “33 years of marriage to my BFF, my lover, my man. Love wins,” the 64-year-old actress wrote.
Rita Wilson’s anniversary message captioned a photo of the couple posing together outdoors with a scenic mountain skyline behind them. They were both notably wearing white. Tom Hanks, 64, didn’t post anything on social media for the special day, but is known for not being as active online as his longtime wife.
The couple met back in 1981 on the set of Bosom Buddies, a sitcom that ran from 1980 – 1982. At the time, Tom Hanks was still married to his first wife, college sweetheart, Samantha Lewes. They had two children together, including 43-year-old actor Colin Hanks and his sister Elizabeth, 38.
Tom Hanks and Samantha Lewes reportedly started living separately in 1984, and by 1987 had officially separated. The A-list couple went public with their own romance that same year. In 1988 they sealed the deal by getting married.
