Tom Hanks shocked a Santa Monica, Calif. resident recently when the “Forrest Gump” A-lister personally turned up and rang the doorbell to chat with the startled owner!
The place was absolutely perfect for his son, Hanks said, then offered him lots of cold, hard cash. And it worked!
“It seems Tom made a lucrative offer the homeowner just couldn’t refuse,” a neighborhood busybody told The National ENQUIRER.
“They made an all-cash, quickie handshake deal to buy it on the spot,” the source continued.
But snoops whispered the cozy nest Tom’s now snapping up, not far from the beach, may be a grand graduation present for their youngest son — brainy 22-year-old Truman.
Said the source: “Tom and Rita are beyond proud of Truman, who recently graduated from Stanford University.” Mazel tov!
