Tom Hanks Hilariously Photobombs Newlyweds In Central Park

Could Tom Hanks be the nicest guy in showbiz?

The Oscar-winning actor just happened to be jogging through Central Park when he spotted a pair of newlyweds having their wedding photos taken - so, naturally, he walked up, introduced himself, and took part in the shoot.

And the bride's face is too funny!

Meg Miller, the couple's photographer, told the New York Daily News that the whole thing was "pretty amazing".

"I had a couple pose near the reservoir," Miller explained. "He just walked up to us and took off his hat and glasses and said, 'Hi, I'm Tom Hanks.'

"It was pretty amazing that he stopped. He asked their names. He easily could have run past."

Miller also revealed that the newly married Elisabeth and Ryan invited the Forrest Gump star to join them at the reception but that Hanks had politely declined, saying "he had other plans".

He did, however, snap his own picture, which he later posted to Instagram with the caption: "Congrats and blessings!"

Elizabeth and Ryan! Congrats and blessings! Hanx.

It's not the first time he's done it, either; back in 1993, while filming Forrest Gump in South Carolina, Hanks waylaid Mary Dunning Chapman right before she walked down the aisle.

"I saw this light blue Lincoln at the stop light just down from the church, and there was a guy hanging out waving and honking the horn," Chapman said at the time

"I didn't think anything of it... by the time we got to the front of the church, the car pulled up, and this guy hops out and runs up to me!

"He says, 'Hey, I'm Tom Hanks, and I just wanted to say good luck!' 

"He hugged me and kissed me on the cheek! I was shocked but managed to get the photographer to snap a great shot.

"The rest of the wedding was kind of a blur!"

What a legend.
