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.”

Below, watch video from the Associated Press of Hanks on the red carpet with wife Rita Wilson.
