You've gotta love Tom Hanks! He just made a 60-year-old Canadian woman's year by helping her win a bet with her friends, by sending her a personalized letter and a Polaroid selfie.

“Some friends and I made a bet to see who could get a headshot from a famous actor the fastest and we agreed for consistency’s sake on Tom Hanks,” wrote fan Zena Gopal on Facebook on Monday.

“I take weird bets seriously (apparently nobody else followed through) and wrote him a letter explaining the bet and telling him that I really wished we could take a selfie together instead,” she continued to write.

“On a whim, I enclosed a stupid picture of me and a llama just in case. Today I got this in the mail.”

“Hey, Zena, Does this count as a head shot?” Hanks wroteback. “Sorry for the beard, but I have some shooting coming up and I must have whiskers.”

The woman also told the actor of her love for the film, That Thing You Do (1996). Hanks discussed his love for the music from the film, writing, “For the record I still find myself humming some of the music from That Thing You Do! like you. I was always partial to the songs Dance With Me Tonight and Drive Faster.”

He signed off with “Throw deep, always.”

Not The First Time

It's not the first time the Hollywood A-lister has taken some time out to truly make someone's day. He once crashed this couple's Central Park wedding while out for a jog. Needless to say, that didn't mind that he was a little underdressed for the occasion.

Aside from clearly making this couple's wedding a very memorable one indeed, there was also that time he went to the trouble of returning a misplaced student ID to a student at Fordham University.

Nice one, Tom! One of the good guys!
