Tom Hanks has earned a reputation for being one of the nicest guys in Hollywood, and he continues to cement that image by committing good deeds for fans and strangers. See below five of the actor’s random acts of kindness.

Hanks most recent gesture came Thursday when he bought an espresso machine for the White House press corps. Attached to the gift was a note that read, “Keep up the good fight for Truth, Justice, and the American Way. Especially for the Truth part.” In fact, this is the third time in the past few years that Hanks has sent a coffee maker to the Press Corps.

In September 2016, Hanks stopped mid-jog in Central Park to crash a wedding photo shoot and congratulate the bride and groom. Not only did the actor pose for pictures with the couple, but also asked if they needed a wedding officiant because he’s an ordained minister.

Hanks found a lost ID card belonging to a Fordham University student in October 2015 and posted a photo of the card on Twitter to get it back to her. “Lauren! I found your Student ID in the park. If you still need it my office will get to you. Hanx,” he captioned the image. The girl later got her ID returned along with a note from Hanks and his signature.

In 2013, Hanks invited a fan named Sarah Moretti, who suffers from autism, backstage to his dressing room after his Broadway show Lucky Guy. A video was later posted online of the woman presenting the actor with a scrapbook she made of photos from his movies and other events, to which he said, “Oh, Sweetie! How wonderful is it to meet you?” He then wrote her a letter in return.

That same year, Hanks invited a New York City cab driver to see his Broadway show after the man extended his shift to give the actor a ride. The driver wrote about the encounter on Facebook, revealing that the actor nicknamed him “Mr. Ferrari” because of the Ferrari hat he was wearing. The driver later met Hanks again backstage at his show, and continues to tell all of his passengers about the actor’s kind deed.
