Celebrities are constantly spending millions on big mansions, yes, plural. In 2016, Hanks and his wife Rita Wilson bought a house in Malibu for $26,000,000. The place has 14,500-square-foot, and it has a ranch style. The funny part? They sold it in 2017.
The Hollywood actor is a huge fan of fancy watches. He wears a different watch each time he is seen in public. He prefers classic brands and has an extensive collection of watches. Hanks owns a Sea-Dealer Rolex, which is designed for extreme diving. It costs over $12,000. The actor also invests in other classic brands like Omega and Bell & Ross.
Hanks is truly a collector. He is madly in love with vintage typewriters that he keeps in a room in one of his houses. The actor said he started this collection when he was nineteen years old and that he has recently started to give them away, now he “only” has 120 typewriters.
As he was always traveling the world to promote his movies or simply on holidays, he’s a private jet user. Of course, the studios will pay for it when he is flying to work, but he has to pay for it when it is for holidays.
Hanks loves to have a good vacation. He doesn’t have money problems, so he spends his money on everything he wants to get the perfect vacation. In 2004, he and Rita rented the largest sailing yacht in the world, and they enjoyed some days exploring the Turkish coast. The price they paid for is unknown, but sure it was very, very expensive.
