On the afternoon of the 18th, a very special guest came to Villa Park in Birmingham, England. Hollywood’s top star, who revealed that the only EPL team he likes is Aston Villa, visited the stadium.
He visited Villa dressing at the stadium before the game, encouraged the players and had a good time taking pictures with them.
This special guest is none other than film volleyball Tom Hanks. On this day, he intuited Arsenal in the 24th round of the English Premier League (EPL) in the 2022-23 season at Villa Park in Birmingham. It was the first time he watched an EPL match. The match was lost 2-4 by Aston Villa.
In particular, when Aston Villa’s left-footed shot from Watkins went straight into the Arsenal net in the 5th minute of the first half, Tom Hanks covered his head and couldn’t hide his excitement.
Looking at the game scene, Tom Hanks watched the game with other Aston Villa presidents from the Royal Box in the headquarters. The moment the first goal was scored, he stood up and cheered. Covering his head, he made a surprised expression and encouraged his favorite team with his applause.
Tom Hanks, who arrived at Villa Park early to watch the game, visited the locker room before the game. He also met with coach Unai Emery and other players, shook hands and took pictures with the players. This same scene was posted on Villa’s official social media as it is. The club hashtagged Tom Hanks’ name, writing ‘It was a pleasure to be with us at Villa Park’.
After encouraging the players, Tom Hanks waved goodbye to the home crowd at the stadium’s Royal Box. Hanks chatted with the club’s CEO and watched a soccer game.
Tom Hanks, 66, well past his 60th birthday this year, confessed to being a Villa fan about 15 years ago. It is known that he not only visited Villa Park for the first time, but also watched an EPL match for the first time in England. 슬롯사이트
And in an interview with Channel 5 in 2013 when he was living in Los Angeles, he stressed that he is an Aston Villa fan. At the time, he said, “I saw an Aston Villa match once. It was a friendly match held in the United States. After that, I became a fan of Villa.”
Tom Hanks revealed that he has a friend who is an Aston Villa fanatic in Los Angeles. It is said that all Aston Villa news is heard through this friend.
Tom Hanks said: “I don’t really know which channel the Villa match is on on my television at home. I can never find that channel,” he explained.
He complains that whenever he turns on the football channel, he only broadcasts matches between Manchester United, Tottenham, Queens Park Rangers and West Ham. So he said, “Why aren’t you doing villa relays? Please relay the Villa match,” he said, shouting.
