New York cabby's story proves that Tom Hanks is the nicest man in Hollywood

If you needed any more proof that Tom Hanks is the nicest guy in Hollywood, look no further.

A cabby shared his story with Facebook page Humans of New York of how a chance encounter with the Oscar-winning actor turned into a little friendship that resulted in an invitation to see Hanks' broadway debut, Lucky Guy. 

It all started when Hanks flagged his cab and told the cabby, known as Mr Ferrari, his destination.

But Mr Ferrari apologised and told him that it was too far for him.

But he changed his mind soon after.

Mr Ferrari said: "I started feeling bad for the guy... so I call him back to the cab and tell him to hop in.

Hanks started talking

Hanks starts talking to the cabby excitedly but Mr Ferrari still has no clue who he is.

But gradually, he learns Hanks' real identity.

So he did what anyone else might have done. He said: "I look him in the eye, and I scream 'WIIIIIIILLLSSSSSOOOOOOON!!!' And that really got him. He started laughing hard."

After noticing the cabby's Ferrari hat and shirt, Hanks calls him Mr Ferrari.

When the ride ends, they snap a quick selfie.

 

But it doesn't end there:

But it didn't end there: Over the next few weeks, I just happen to randomly pick up people that know him. People who have acted with him before, people who work with him. And every time, I tell them: ‘Tell Mr. Hanks that Mr. Ferrari says ‘hello.’" Every time I say that. Then one day I’m driving, and I get a text from one of the people that I’d driven, and it says: ‘Mr. Hanks wants to invite you to see his Broadway show.’ So I bring my lady to the show, and we get to go backstage and everything, and after the show, we’re waiting for him in his dressing room, and he walks in and screams: ‘Mr. Ferrari!’ Can you believe that story? And you wanna know the craziest thing? The name of his show was ‘Lucky Guy.’ How crazy is that? Cause that was me. A lucky guy!"

 

Awwww, how sweet is that?
