Tom Hanks was photographed looking frustrated at the Cannes Film Festival 2023, but his wife, Rita Wilson, denied that any altercation had occurred, claiming that the loud noise had made it difficult for them to hear. Now, a body language expert has supported that account, stating that “the facial expressions you pull when you’re struggling to hear someone speak can often mimic signals of anger or irritation.” The expert noted that Tom Hanks seemed to be intently listening and trying to hear the person talking, rather than exhibiting threatening behavior. Moreover, in another photo, he was seen cupping his ear to hear better, which is a telltale sign of hearing difficulties. Rita Wilson’s hand gestures also suggested that she was trying to clarify what was being said, rather than expressing anger. The body language expert concluded that the couple’s facial expressions were a result of the noisy environment, not aggression or irritation.
