Tom Hanks gifts typewriter to a fan

Los Angeles, Nov 25 (IANS) Actor Tom Hanks has gifted a typewriter to a fan who drew sketches of him.

The actor surprised Denise Esposito with a gift on Wednesday, reports

Hanks included a personal note to the artist, which read: “For your lovely book of sketches of — all — those movies… Here is a typewriter to do with whatever you need… Make more art! And many thanks. Tom Hanks.”

Esposito told the website LAist she met the “Sully” actor — who received the Presidential Medal of Freedom at the White House earlier this week — at the Rome Film Festival in October.
