9. Awesome thing # 7
Some kid saw Tom Hanks at a restaurant and asked to take a picture with him. But Tom Hanks doesn’t “do” boring pics. So instead he let the kid steal his glasses, pretend to be wasted, and then he played along with the scenario because…wait for it…HE’S AWESOME!!!
12. Awesome Thing # 8
He said the F word — no, not floogle, the other F word — on Good Morning America. This is awesome because people saying curse words on live TV is always a great time.

17. Awesome thing #12
His speech at Michael Clarke Duncan’s funeral. It was sweet, funny, and perfectly done.
