Hanks has said he and Wilson wanted their children to have as normal lives as possible, considering they had everything growing up and came from a famous family. The couple did a great job of keeping their kids out of the spotlight, so it’s no wonder a family trip to Disneyland made the evening news.
In her 2001 interview with Hanks, Oprah told the actor, “When I mentioned to a few people that I was going to interview you, they said, ‘What a decent guy!’ How close are you to that image?”
“Pretty close. I try not to lie to people — the only way to control the way you’re perceived is to tell the truth,” he responded. “No journalist has ever been in my house, and no photographs have ever been taken of where I live. I don't parade my family out for display, which is the way it will stay.”
But now that the kids are all grown up, the couple definitely shares family moments like watching sports together.
