In 1981, Hanks met actress Rita Wilson on the set of TV comedy Bosom Buddies (1980–1982).

Hanks has three granddaughters: Olivia (b. 2011) and Charlotte (b. 2013), the daughters of Colin, and Micaiah (b. 2016), the daughter of Chet.

Hanks actively attends church. He said, “I must say that when I go to church—and I do go to church—I ponder the mystery.

I meditate on the ‘why?’ of ‘why people are as they are’ and ‘why bad things happen to good people,’ and ‘why good things happen to bad people’ …

The mystery is what I think is, almost, the grand unifying theory of all mankind.”

On October 7, 2013, on the Late Show with David Letterman, Hanks announced that he has Type 2 diabetes.

Greece’s Interior Minister Takis Theodorikakos said Hanks “showed real interest in the people who suffered from the fire in Mati and promoted this issue in the global media”.

On July 26, 2020, the Prime Minister of Greece, Kyriakos Mitsotakis, accompanied with his wife, handed over Greek passports to both Tom Hanks and Rita Wilson.
