Tom Hanks, who is often ranked as one of Hollywood’s friendliest actors, stars as Symbolist Robert Langdon – who travels from Paris to London in an attempt to solve a murder mystery.
The actor, who has won nearly 40 television and film awards, has shared his love for London in several interviews in the past.
He even went so far as to reveal that he had taken a nap in Hyde Park before – whether that was because he found it so peaceful or because it annoyed him is another matter.
But he also revealed he was a big foodie for one of London’s most popular restaurant chains, Wagamama.
In a Time Out article in 2018, he explained some of his favorite ‘haunts’ that he likes to visit whenever he visits London and has a day off.
“I saw the Cabinet War Rooms and the Tower of London, but the best times were when I spent a day off here. I took a nap in Hyde Park; I fell in love with Wagamama – I have my haunts, ”he explained.
Before becoming a successful actor, Tom revealed that he had never visited Big Smoke until 1984, when he was in the capital promoting the American romantic comedy Splash.
The 65-year-old was married twice, first to Samantha Lewes in 1978 until 1987, and to his current wife, Rita Wilson, whom he married a year after his marriage to Samantha ended.

Rita, 64, has also starred in her own blockbuster movies, including box office hits such as Mamma Mia! and Sleepless in Seattle, in which Tom Hanks also starred.
Her real name is actually Margarita Ibrahimoff, and was born to a Greek mother and a Bulgarian father.
The couple have two adult children together, Chet (real name Chester), 31, and Truman, 25.
Tom Hanks also has another son named Colin, 43, who is the spitting image of his father, and Elizabeth, 39, from his previous marriage to Samantha.
When not visiting London, Tom divides his time between his LA and Idaho homes.
