Tom Hanks' wife Rita Wilson has undergone a double mastectomy after being diagnosed with breast cancer, it's been revealed today.

The actress confirmed in a statement that she had decided to have the surgery to remove both breasts, as well as reconstructive surgery after being diagnosed with invasive lobular carcinoma.

Having caught the cancer early and opted for surgery, Rita says her doctors expect her to make a full recovery.

"Last week, with my husband by my side, and with the love and support of family and friends, I underwent a bilateral mastectomy and reconstruction for breast cancer after a diagnosis of invasive lobular carcinoma," she said in a statement published by People magazine.

"I am recovering and most importantly, expected to make a full recovery. Why? Because I caught this early, have excellent doctors and because I got a second opinion," she added.

The 58-year-old mother of two thanked Tom and her family for their support, saying, "I feel blessed to have a loving, supportive husband, family, friends and doctors and that I am the beneficiary of advances in the field of breast cancer and reconstruction. I am getting better every day and look forward to renewed health."

The news comes just weeks after actress Angelina Jolie revealed she had undergone elective surgery to remove her ovaries and fallopian tubes as a preventative measure, following a double mastectomy back in 2012.

We wish Rita a full and speedy recovery.



Sarah Jessica Parker was celebrating her 50th birthday last night at the New York Rangers game, but she didn't exactly seem in the party mood, if the filthy looks she was throwing around were anything to go by.

One smart Vine user uploaded this clip of Sarah Jessica looking less than chuffed with herself, as her fellow actor Tom Hanks chatted away in blissful ignorance just a foot away.

Maybe he casually mentioned that he hates the SATC2 movie as much as the rest of us…or maybe Sarah Jessica was just chewing her gum really intently? Hard to know for sure…

Whatever was going on, the actress looked a little more pleased in this photo, taken later in the game:

Smile SJP, it's your birthday after all!



Ah, the rom-com. Is there a more perfect genre of film? Probably, but none that we care to know about.

Any movie fan will knows the Nineties was the absolute golden age of romantic comedies. Nora Ephron’s scripts, Meg Ryan’s pre-Botox cuteness and Hugh Grant’s floppy English hair. All the ingredients for a great decade of films.

Here are just five of our faves…

1. Sleepless in Seattle (1993)
This was Meg Ryan’s second Nora Ephron film after When Harry Met Sally (just one year too early in 1989!) and it’s one we come back to time and time again. If that Empire State Building scene doesn’t have you tearing up, then you simply can’t call yourself a rom-com fan.

2. Four Weddings and a Funeral (1994)
As the name suggests, there’s a whole heap of love stories in this film – and one heart-wrenching funeral scene too. Have the Kleenex ready.

3. You’ve Got Mail (1998)
Meg Ryan and Tom Hanks reunited for this iconic movie, loosely based on the 1940 film The Shop Around the Corner. Watching it back now, the dial-up internet and chat rooms are adorably outdated, but any Tinder user can identify with the thrill of meeting someone new online!

4. 10 Things I Hate About You (1999)
The late Heath Ledger is a total heartthrob in this film, long before his terrifying days as The Joker. We still smile every time we hear Can’t Take My Eyes Off You.


5. Notting Hill (1999)
We can’t decide if this or Four Weddings is our favourite Hugh Grant flick. He gets extra bonus points for this scene…




Oh this is just amazing!

Justin Bieber released a video on his Instagram account of Tom Hanks absolutely killing it on the dance-floor at a recent wedding.

The pop star captioned the brilliant video: “Haha Tom Hanks singing “This is How we do it” dressed like a Rabbi. #thatdancetho.”


Screen Junkies have released another honest trailer and this time it’s one of our favourite movie’s Forrest Gump. This might change your opinion of the movie, but we still love it.



Parents Lily and Leon are giving their little boy Orson the coolest baby photos of all time.

The couple behind Cardboard Box Office have been recreating famous movie scenes with the help of their baby and some cardboard boxes and the results are just amazing.

The little guy has already taken on iconic roles played by Tom Hanks and Bruce Willis, so his future is looking bright.

Will Orson be the first guy not to cringe when mum drags out the baby pictures for his girlfriends?
