Though they love each other, Rita is not a fan of his facial hair. He joked, “You will say… another mustache?”
Hanks grew a mustache and dyed his hair white for his new film “Sully.” He revealed, “It's not easy to get white hair, really. White hair has to be bleached, burn-washed. If you want to make your mustache white, you have to pull it out, hair by hair, stretch it out, and with a little tiny paint brush, paint against the grain of the hair.”
Tom worked with legendary director Clint Eastwood on the film. Of the 86-year-old, he said, “Clint is an intimidating dude.”
As for why he wanted to be part of the movie, Hanks said, “Any time you can take a story that everybody thinks they know and blow them out of their hut by showing the second half of the story."
