Oh snap! Here’s something you probably weren’t expecting: apparently Tom Hanks and Rita Wilson hit a rough patch in their relationship and split up for a full month earlier this year. Don’t worry, things are back the way they should be now – they’re together and very much in love, it was just rocky for a while.

From In Touch Weekly:

In Touch has exclusively learned that the couple, married for 26 years, temporarily split for a month.

“They hit a rough patch. They were leading separate lives,” a friend exclusively tells In Touch, revealing that for a month, Rita lived alone in their $26 million modern mansion in Pacific Palisades while her husband stayed at a producer pal’s home in tony Malibu Colony before leaving to film his new movie, A Hologram for the King, in Egypt.

“Although they attended social functions and walked their dog together,” a source says of the pair, “they were living in separate residences.”

According to the friend, “they just weren’t seeing eye to eye.” But the couple survived their temporary split by refusing to give up. “Tom and Rita are not just husband and wife, they are best friends. It will take a lot to split this couple up for good.”

Get it! I do believe these two are really in love. They’ve been together for SO LONG – it makes sense that rough patches are going to pop up, and sometimes taking some space gives a bit of clarity and diffuses a situation so they can get back on track. Glad to hear that was the case for them!

Justin Bieber posted a video of Tom Hanks dancing to ‘This Is How We Do It’ at Scooter Braun’s wedding

Let’s all ignore the obvious question of how in the hell Scooter Braun knows/is friends with Tom Hanks for about five seconds so that we can enjoy the one good thing Justin Bieber has ever done in his life: capturing Tom dancing to ‘This Is How We Do It’ at Scooter’s wedding in Canada last weekend.

I don’t know how or why any of this happened (or why Tom is dressed like a rabbi), but I’m certainly glad it did.

Tom Hanks Wants To Play A Batman Villian

Tom Hanks is kind of adorable. He gave an interview where he pleaded to be a superhero villain, particularly someone in the Batman universe. I guess seeing Tom Hanks as a villain would be something new, and if Ben Affleck can play Batman, anything is possible. Here’s what he told Showbiz 411 via Huffington Post:

They don’t ask me, man. I keep trying. Come on, I can do it. I can do it. Even let me play a bad guy, let me play the bad guy against Batman. I’ll do anything, call me. They’ve never asked. What do I gotta do? God, I want to throw a shield at somebody. I want that. And I don’t want to play the guy in the suit who tells the superheroes what’s going on, I don’t want to be that guy. ‘Well, you know Batman, Captain America, Iron Man, here’s what we’ve discovered,’ I don’t want to be that guy. I want to get in there, I want to play The Flash or something like that. They’ll never give me a chance.

Someone in the comments section pointed out that if the dad from Malcolm in the Middle can play a badass meth cook, Tom Hanks can totally play a comic book movie villain.

Could YOU see Tom Hanks as a Batman villain?
