Rita Wilson has spoken out after images emerged showing Tom Hanks in a ‘furious’ altercation with a Cannes Film Festival official.

The celebrities were in attendance for the premiere of Wes Anderson’s new film Asteroid City, in which Hanks stars alongside Matt Dillon, Maya Hawke, and Ed Norton.

While the media flocked to the red carpet to catch a sight of the actors, several noticed the Toy Story star arguing with a member of staff.

Photos circulated extensively online show Hanks and wife Wilson speaking to someone, and their expressions appear to paint an unhappy picture.

Some speculated that the Hollywood legend was giving the employee a scolding, with some labeling it a “outburst.”

Wilson, on the other hand, has recently come out and explained what truly happened at that time.

The 66-year-old stated on Instagram that it had definitely been taken out of context.

“This is called I can not hear you,” she replied, referring to one of the articles written about the photo. People are yelling. What exactly did you say? What are we supposed to do now? But that does not make stories sell!”

“We had a great time!” the actor continued. Visit Asteroid City!”

But it was not all that long ago that the world witnessed Hanks’ rage.

Last year, he and Wilson were being pursued by cameras through the streets when a fan stepped too close and tripped his wife.

She put her hands in the air and yelled, ‘Stop it!’ as she struggled to regain her calm. Hanks, on the other hand, took a much more direct approach to protecting his wife, ordering fans to “back the f**k off… knocking over my wife.”

“Come on,” one irritated fan said in reaction to the mobbing.

“Sorry about that, Tom!” exclaimed another as the very irritated actor was led into his car.

After witnessing a screening of the Elvis biography, in which Hanks plays the famed musician’s manager, Colonel Tom Parker, the couple was having a lunch.

“You know you f****d up when Tom Hanks curses at you,” one fan of the incident said.

“Imagine what an ahole you would feel like, being excited to see Tom Hanks and then psing him off,” another speculated.

“Imagine having to deal with that s**t, imagine having the millions in the banks makes it easier,” a third wrote.

“Holy sh** Tom Hanks is enraged and swearing. “That has to be a first,” said another.
