Tom Hanks Sent A Special Surprise Gift To A Fan

Update Date: Nov 25, 2016 05:48 AM EST

Tom Hanks is well known for being one of the most gracious people in showbiz and he made sure to keep his title when he surprised his fan with a special gift, MailOnline reported.

Denise Esposito knew she would run into her favorite actor, Tom Hanks while on an assignment at the Rome Film Festival in October. The ardent fan decided to gift her actor a special gift of appreciation and as a result of three weeks of drawing and painting, she produced a sketchbook and watercolor works of all the characters essayed by Tom Hanks in films. The last page of the sketchbook had a typewriter sketched on it with 'To Be Continued' written under it.

Esposito told SFGate that she met the 'Sully' actor- who received the prestigious 'Presidential Medal Of Freedom' at the Rome Film Festival in October. She managed to meet his publicist to whom she handed over her sketchbook. She hoped the sketchbook would reach the actor after handing it to the publicist. Minutes later, she explained, she was called by a guy saying Hanks wanted to meet her and thank her in person.She couldn't believe it and she nearly started to cry.

Hanks' love for typewriters is well-documented and upon seeing Denise's sketchbook, he told her he'd send her a typewriter. True to his word, he did exactly that.

The Oscar-winning actor sent Esposito a typewriter with a special note that read, "For your lovely sketches of--all--those movies, here is a typewriter to do with whatever you need...Make more art! And many thanks..."

Esposito took to Twitter to post and flaunt the typewriter signed and sent by Hanks to her with a caption reading how amazing life is when your fav actor sends you a typewriter and a thank you letter.
