Tom Hanks short interview about his Honorary Greek Citizenship

Tom Hanks, regarded as one of the nicest men in show business, was honored with a lifetime achievement award at the Golden Globes on Sunday the 5th of January, 2020 to mark his 30-year movie career.

Tom Hanks received the prestigious Cecil B deMille Award at the Golden Globes, recognising a lifetime career in cinema.

The Cecil B. DeMille award is given annually by Golden Globe organizers the Hollywood Foreign Press Association to an actor, director or producer who has made a lasting impact on the film industry.

Among others, he was very very briefly interviewed by a Greek journalist and see what he said about his very recent Honorary Greek Citizenship that was granted by the President of the Hellenic Republic:

In accordance with the Greek law, individuals may be granted honorary naturalisation if they have “provided exceptional services to the country or whose naturalisation serves the public interest”.

The American film star’s wife, actor and producer Rita Wilson, is of Greek descent and the couple visits every summer the Greek island of Antiparos, where they own a villa. Antiparos is one of the Cyclades islands in the middle of the Aegean Sea.
