Greek Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis revealed that global superstar Tom Hanks and his wife Rita Wilson have become official citizens of Greece.
The Prime Minister shared a photo gathered with his wife Mariva Grabovsky, with Hanks, 64, and Wilson, 63, and the two actors were seen carrying their new Greek passports, as Mitsotakis said that both Hanks and Wilson are "Greek citizens and we are proud of that."
