Why Tom Hanks Took Up Tea

February 25, 2008


Being an in-demand actor can take its toll on the body. Film star Tom Hanks has gained (and lost) weight for a number of his roles, sometimes purposefully and other times not. But after packing on several pounds, he ultimately turned to tea for a dietary solution. 

According to AskMen.com, Hanks became hooked on gourmet coffee during filming of Steven Spielberg’s The Terminal, in which he co-starred with actress Catherine Zeta-Jones. “I had to give up coffee because I was drinking too many lattes,” he’s quoted as saying. Luckily Hanks found a sensible substitute, noting “I drink tea now instead.”
