Tom Hanks - Tom Hanks to buy wife toaster for Christmas

Tom Hanks is getting his wife a toaster or a rice cooker for Christmas.

The 'Captain Phillips' star has been married to Rita Wilson for over 20 years, and although his choice of gift may seem more practical than glamorous, he ensures it will be a top-of-the-range model.

He said: ''What am I going to get her? I'll go the toaster oven route, but a really cool toaster oven. Like, one you can just set and it's automatic. Maybe a rice cooker. She's handy in the kitchen, that wife of mine.''

Hanks, 57, is also looking forward to a functional gift from Santa this year.

He added: ''I could use some running pants.''

The Oscar winner recently had to grow a moustache to play Walt Disney in 'Saving Mr. Banks' and says his face fuzz was not something his wife took to.

He lamented: ''She hates every time I have to grow facial hair. She says, 'So when are you done with this job?' And what she really means is, 'When are you shaving that off?' ''
