Actor Tom Hanks was honored Wednesday night by the Elie Wiesel Foundation at a gala at the New York Public Library for his philanthropy and contributions to society.
The Oscar-winner, who posed for pictures with Wiesel before the gala began, told the Associated Press, “We’re American, and Americans take into account the common good. So in that regard, I feel very lucky and very blessed that I’ve been able to do that, when I’ve been able to do that.”
