Tom Hanks’ wife Rita Wilson, 65, cuts a stylish figure as she arrives in Athens for a music event – after she was knocked over by a fan sparking a furious reaction from her husband
Tom Hanks’ wife Rita Wilson was spotted arriving in Athens on Saturday, just a week since she was defended by her actor husband, after being knocked over by a fan in New York.
The actress, 65, touched down in Greece for an event hosted by songwriter Desmond’s Child, sporting a casual all-black look and a wide-brimmed straw hat.
Last week footage emerged of Tom furiously telling a fan to ‘back off’ after Rita was knocked over by a fan while they left a restaurant in Manhattan.
Out and about: Tom Hanks’ wife Rita Wilson, 65, cut a stylish figure in all-black as she arrived in Athens for a music event on Saturday
Rita cut a casual figure in a simple black top and loose-fitting trousers as she arrived in Greece for Desmond’s star-studded event at the Odeon of Herodes Atticus.
She was seen heading to a waiting car with her things in a studded tote bag.
It comes after Rita’s husband Tom was seen in a furious exchange with a fan after she was knocked over by an overzealous crowd.

In the aforementioned exchange, Hanks and Wilson were leaving a restaurant when a person bumped into Wilson, almost causing her to lose her balance.
After Wilson was heard yelling, ‘Stop it,’ Hanks was heard saying, ‘Back the f*** off … knocking over my wife?’ before the couple headed to a waiting vehicle.
Hanks had been on the promotional trail for his new film Elvis, in which he plays Colonel Tom Parker. The film, from director Baz Luhrmann, stars Austin Butler in the titular role and Olivia DeJonge as Priscilla Presley.

It also comes after Tom sparked health concerns with his gaunt appearance and trembling.
Fears were sparked when he seemed unable to control shaking in his arm during a promotional junket for his new film, Elvis.
He appeared at a screening in Brisbane alongside director Baz Luhrmann and co-star Austin Butler earlier this month and his arm visibly shook as he spoke.
‘There is no better place in the world to make a motion picture than right here on the Gold Coast,’ he said, microphone in his right hand, and left hand in his pocket.
The actor has famously shed the pounds for movies in the past, including his role as a desert island dweller in Castaway, and dying AIDS sufferer in Philadelphia.
Hanks is known for his grueling preparations for his films, and it was unclear whether the recent weight loss was for a new role.
