Tom Hanks Makes Autistic Fan's Day in Super Sweet Backstage Encounter (VIDEOS)

Watch It! 5

Tom Hanks is a rock star. Ok, he’s a movie star, and Broadway star, but in my book right now, he’s a rock star too. He totally rocks in some super sweet videos showing his backstage encounter with an Autistic fan.

Sarah Moretti is a huge fan of Hanks, and according to a series of videos published on YouTube in March (that are just now making the scene), the star invited her backstage when he was permorning in Lucky Guy on Broadway for a chat and autographs. But he made it so special for her!

Sarah had scrapbooks filled with pictures and articles about Hanks, and he absolutely gushed over them. “Look how young I used to be!” He exclaimed. He made her feel like a total princess. “Sweetie, how wonderful is it to meet you? I love meeting you,” he told her.

Sarah looks like she’s on cloud nine. She’s all smiles and giggles, and you can tell that her idol did not disappoint.

Take a look at a couple of the videos. I dare you not to tear up at the super sweetness of it all.

Does this make you fall in love with Tom Hanks? Or Sarah Moretti? Both? Me too.
