“WE GREW UP WATCHING HIS MOVIES AND ALL OF A SUDDEN HE SAT NEXT TO ME IN MY FAVOURITE MEXICAN RESTAURANT!"
MICAH WARZYWAK SHARES HIS EXPERIENCE MEETING TOM HANKS
Our friend Micah Warzywak was having a casual dinner with his friend Sarah at their favourite Mexican Restaurant Bonita Bonita in Mermaid Beach on the Gold Coast, Australia. While chatting and focusing on his yummy margaritas, a car parked in front of where they were sitting… At first, Micah didn’t recognise who got out of the car….then Tom Hanks and his crew end up sitting down at the table behind them.
Both, Sarah and Micah thought that an opportunity like this is “pretty cool and doesn’t happen often”…so, they asked Hanks if they can get a photo with him. After finishing dinner, Tom Hanks was like “ok, ok we now need to do a fun photo, let’s be exuberant instead of the normal cliché photo.” And they were all like: ok let’s spontaneously throw our hands up, haha!
I’ve never been “star struck” before.
And yes that’s my word to describe
the situation. Star struck.”
Micah describes Hanks as “so down to earth and such a kind-hearted fun man to be around.” And “of course I am still flashed and honoured that we have met him”.
The 2 -time Oscar winner Hanks has been around the Gold Coast over the past 2 weeks for an Elvis biopic that’s currently in production.
There might be more opportunities to run into the great man.....
