tom-hanks-trash-canThere are few things about me that I’m certain will never change: I will ALWAYS be the person to make the inappropriate comment at the most inopportune time, I will NEVER check the voicemails people leave, and I will ETERNALLY be obsessed with the man, the myth, the legend, Mr. Tom Hanks. While I can’t pinpoint the exact moment I knew I was hooked on the man, I can say that it’s something I’ve never been able to shake, but, let’s be honest, why would I want to??

I realize that some may think “Hmmm Tom Hanks, eh?” but those people can go directly to hell because he’s the man. Most people make their Hollywood obsessions in the form of Brad Pitt or Johnny Depp, but where’s the originality in that? Sure, they’re both good looking, but who cares? It’s not like you ACTUALLY have a snowball’s chance in hell of meeting one of them, let alone dating them.

As a native of the great city of Erie, Pennsylvania, I was pumped to discover that a movie was going be partially set in my fair city, only to find out that T. Hanks himself would be staring. Double greatness. (Shout out to “That Thing You Do!”)

Perhaps I misspoke when I said I’m full-on obsessed with the man. No, I don’t belong to any Tom Hanks fan clubs, nor do I post “I love you Tom” notes on message boards, but I am a devoted follower and own every single Tom Hanks movie to date, and I’m not ashamed to admit it! When TBS decides to run back to back showings of Sleepless in Seattle I watch both. Yes, yes I do.

The numbers of awards he has received are literally countless, but the thing that everyone remembers are his super sweet movie quotes…i.e…”There is no crying in baseball” and “Houston, we have a problem”. I’ve watched him transform from a child to a grown adult, suffer from a brain cloud, and antagonize Meg Ryan to no end as NY152. All of which, were hysterical.

If you still don’t agree with me on how excellent he is, his dad was related to Abraham Lincoln. Case = rested. Bottom line, Tom Hanks owns your life.
