His second and current wife is Rita Wilson (30 April 1988 - present) who he has another two children with.

It was hard to narrow down this list into a top 10 because while most actors will never have a movie ranked 8.0 or higher on IMDb (Internet Movie Database), Tom Hanks has been a part of five movies with those such ratings.
