Tim Allen and Tom Hanks, who co-starred in the iconic Toy Story franchise, have a genuine friendship that has lasted for years. Allen recently spoke about their friendship on the Kelly Clarkson show, revealing that they have been going to lunch twice a year since the first Toy Story movie.
Despite having different opinions on many things, Allen adores Hanks’ heart and mind and trusts him more than anyone else to listen without judgment. They even sit too close to each other at lunch, like two older women.
Their friendship began during the filming of Toy Story 1, when Hanks took some fries from Allen’s plate, causing a priceless reaction from Allen who grew up in a home where one didn’t simply help themselves to food from other people’s plates.
Both actors are incredibly successful in Hollywood, with Hanks having won two consecutive Academy Awards for Best Actor. Despite their busy schedules, they make time to hang out and catch up with each other.
It’s heartwarming to see a genuine friendship between two A-list celebrities, especially one that has lasted for so many years. Allen and Hanks’ friendship is a testament to the fact that genuine connections can be formed in Hollywood, and it’s wonderful to see them support each other both on and off-screen.
