Tom Hanks and Rita Wilson are a very famous power couple in Hollywood, and their long-term marriage has always seemed to be quite stable.
They are known not only for their individual work as successful actors and filmmakers, but also for their wonderful love story that really does appear as though it was taken directly from a Hollywood movie.

In 1980, the pair had their first encounter while working together on the set of the comedy “Bosom Buddies,” in which Tom had a recurring role for two seasons.
Wilson made a cameo appearance as a guest star in an episode that was about an online dating video service.

By 1985, the two had worked together again on the film “Volunteers”, which marked the duo’s on-screen return, they were joined by the comedic actor John Candy.
