Hero Hanks Rescues Bride


Hollywood actor TOM HANKS played a real life hero this week (09Jun08) by halting filming on his new movie to help a stranded bride reach her wedding.

Hanks is currently filming Da Vinci Code sequel Angels and Demons in Rome, Italy and the crew were shooting outside the Pantheon church in the city when the actor spotted the stricken woman.

The bride, in her traditional white dress and veil, had arrived at the church
– only to find her access blocked by the film crew, causing her to panic.

But Hanks immediately halted filming and rushed over to help – taking the woman on his arm, he escorted her and her father across the set to meet her groom at the altar.

The star even gathered the train of her dress, to stop the long gown dragging on the floor. And after his good deed was done, Hanks allowed the crew to complete the scene, reports America’s Hello magazine.

The new movie is due for release next year (09).
