Cheers to Tom Hanks and Rita Wilson on their 30th wedding anniversary — it’s an incredible milestone in and of itself, but by Hollywood standards it’s a rarity.

The pair — who together have made films, celebrated award wins, raised kids, and beat cancer — had a star-studded bash over the weekend at their Pacific Palisades, Calif., home, which drew an A-list crowd, including Oprah Winfrey, Kate Hudson, Jimmy Kimmel, Conan O’Brien, Goldie Hawn and Kurt Russell, and Martin Short, to name a few. Oh, and there was one other guy. Hmm… what was his name? Oh, Barack Obama. Yes, the former president rolled in with his Secret Service detail. If Barack and Michelle believe in Tom and Rita’s love, they need no more believers. They’re set.

Wilson and Hanks posted this photo to their social media accounts on Monday:


For people who cover a lot of breakups, we are here for Tom and Rita’s love. We need Tom and Rita’s love. So as tribute to them, let’s throw it back to three decades of their cuteness.

On April 30, 1988, the twosome — who met in the early ’80s on the set of Bosom Buddies and began their romance after they co-starred in the film Volunteers (and after he was divorced from his first wife) — were just beyond on their wedding day, even with photogs popping up unexpectedly to snap their pic.

They’re cute when they’re doting — whether it’s a sweat wipe…

They’re even cute when they have to pose for photos next to someone they maybe don’t want to pose with. (*Cough* Kanye *cough* West.)

And for more than 30 years, they’ve had each other’s back. Cheers to that. Cheers to them.
