Tom Hanks Thanks Good Samaritan Who Returned His Lost Credit Card

Tom Hanks is regarded as one of Hollywood's nice guys, as he's carried out a number of good deeds over the years -- but now the tables have turned and the actor became the recipient of a kind act.

On Twitter, Hanks shared a story with his fans about a lost credit card that was subsequently returned to him by a well-meaning individual. The post further explains, "A guy named Tony found my credit card on the street in NYC and returned it! Tony! You make this city even greater! Thanx. HANX."
The post quickly went viral. It's unclear if Tony is one of his fans, but there is the possibility that he read about Hanks' previous interactions with folks and wanted to return the favor.

Last year, a story started making the rounds online about Hanks' friendship with a taxi driver that formed during a chance encounter and resulted in the cabbie receiving an invite to a Broadway show.

If you missed the actor's cameo in Carly Rae Jepsen's new music video, take a peek below:

If Carly Rae Jepsen is the little sister of the Millennial generation, then Tom Hanks is its goofy uncle. So it's only fitting that Hanks stars in Jepsen's latest music video for her sugary-sweet, catchy-as-it-comes song "I Really Like You," which dropped Friday. In the video, Hanks lip-syncs to the song while in his apartment and on the streets of SoHo. The video appears to be an ode to Millennials, throwing in references to emoji, Tinder and Justin Bieber.
Now here's something you don't see everyday! Justin Bieber, Tom Hanks and Carly Rae Jepsen hanging together busting out some synchronised dance moves on the streets of New York. The unlikely group were throwing some serious shapes down the streets of Soho with an army of backing dancers following closely behind them. But no the gang we're not working on a strange new musical they were in fact shooting a commercial for Italian car brand Fiat.
