CANNES, FRANCE: Tom Hanks appeared to rebuke a staffer during his red carpet walk at the Cannes Film Festival for his new film 'Asteroid City' on Tuesday, May 23, 2023. The actor looked frustrated as he pointed his finger at the man while attending the event alongside his wife Rita Wilson, who also stars in the film. Wilson was seen holding her hand up in front of her as she spoke to the staffer.

The unidentified man seemed to be trying to calm the situation. Hanks, however, continued to look annoyed but eventually walked down the red carpet to pose for photos. Hank was seen in a classic black tuxedo and matching bow tie, which he wore with a white shirt.

'Tom has been tremendously hot-headed lately'

Social media users reacted to the photos of Hanks seemingly arguing with the staffer, with one of them commenting on Facebook, "What is his problem! He's gotten grumpy in his older years". "Everyone has a temper at some point in their lives, he is human," one user said, defending him. "Tom has been tremendously hot-headed lately... maybe he should try boxing to let it all come out," said one user. 


"Hanks is like a box of chocolates. You never know what you're gonna get," one user said, referring to a dialogue from 'Forrest Gump.' "Imagine being the guy who was yelled at by Tom Hanks. I would cry," one user said, while another wrote, "Notice he’s been getting angrier in recent years".
