Tom Hanks yells at fans to 'back off' after Rita Wilson is almost knocked over

The actor and the singer/actress were surrounded by fans looking for autographs and selfies as they left a restaurant and walked to their waiting car in New York on Wednesday night. Video footage posted on YouTube shows one fan walking alongside Tom and gazing in his direction before crashing straight into the back of his wife. Rita, who almost tripped over, stopped walking and called on the crowd to "stop it". This prompted the usually mild-mannered star to turn around and angrily yell at the fans as he put up his hands to urge them to step back.
