Tom Hanks was forced to scream and defend his wife, Rita Wilson, after she was nearly shoved to the ground by a mob of raving fans.
Actor Forrest Gump, 65, swore in front of ecstatic fans as they surrounded the celebrity couple outside a restaurant in Midtown, New York City, on Wednesday.
Crowds of aggressive fans come amid growing concern for Tom’s well-being – after he was filmed appearing shaky and unable to control his arms earlier this month during the film’s premiere new Elvis in Australia.
After Tom and Rita left the restaurant in New York, the actor looked annoyed after a large crowd and rushed towards the famous couple.
One fan in particular appeared too close to Rita, almost causing her to fall to the ground from loss of balance.
The actress, 65, looked startled and shaken in front of the sudden crowd as she tried to regain her composure and stay on her feet.
Rita ended up shouting ‘stop it’ to the raving fans as she raised her hand before Tom took control of the situation.
The angry Hollywood star turned to the crowd and shouted: “My wife? Back off! Hit my wife?!
The couple then quickly walked to a nearby car waiting to take them away from the energetic crowd.
Following the unfortunate incident, an apologetic fan can be heard apologizing to Tom for causing any harm to his dear wife.
They shouted ‘sorry about that, Tom’ – but the actor refused to answer.
The incident comes amid growing concerns about the actor’s health after he was unable to control his shaking right hand while performing on stage earlier this month.
Actor Forrest Gump, 65, is promoting Baz Luhrmann’s biopic Elvis, in which he acts as the singer’s manager.
The film’s premiere was held in Sydney, Australia, where the film was filmed.
Standing on stage in front of the audience, Tom began: “There’s no better place in the world to make a motion picture than right here on the Gold Coast.”
At this point Tom’s hand was clearly shaking and he was trying to get it to stop.
He places his left hand below the microphone, before attempting to switch hands completely.
Fans began to speculate about Tom’s health on social media after the video clip was spread.
One fan wrote: “I love Tom Hanks. Saw him on screen recently and thought he looked so skinny. Hope he’s okay.”
“He seems to age suddenly – weight loss,” one person commented.
Another suggested: “Unfortunately, his declining health could lead to Parkinson’s disease.”
And the fourth wrote: “He has diabetes. This happened to my mother when she had low blood sugar.”
