Tom and Samantha had two children together, a son called Colin and a daughter called Elizabeth.

The couple divorced in 1987, and Samantha tragically passed away from bone cancer aged 49 in 2002.

“I was not really ready to take on those responsibilities."

In 1981, Tom reportedly met actress Rita Wilson on the set of TV comedy Bosom Buddies. The couple married in 1988 and had two sons, Chester, known as ‘Chet’, and Truman.

“I won't deny that providence was part of us finding each other, but our relationship isn't magic — the way it's shown in movies.

“In real life, our connection is as concrete as me sitting here. Not that marriage doesn't come close to being hell in a handbasket sometimes.

Colin Hanks, 44, has starred in the likes of King Kong, the Jumanji film series and in a number of TV dramas.
