You must not touch the wife of Tom Hanks. And Wednesday, June 15, a few unlucky people paid the price. As Rita Wilson and the actor were leaving a romantic dinner in New York, they were attacked by a group of fans.

Unfortunately, the situation degenerated somewhat when one of the members of the group approached too close to the singer, almost knocking her over.
