Tom Hanks and his wife Rita Wilson got apologies and retractions on Tuesday from two U.S. tabloids who claimed the Hollywood couple were divorcing because Hanks was in love with his co-stars Meg Ryan or Felicity Jones. Both The National Enquirer and Star Magazine issued statements, changed their online stories and will run corrections in their upcoming print editions. Hanks and Wilson, who have been married for 28 years, said in a statement that in the past they had laughed off tabloid stories about their "soon-to-be acrimonious divorce because those stories were so far from true." But with their 29th anniversary coming up in April, the couple said they considered marriage to be "the foundation of their (our) family" and that such stories were "lies they (we) would not put up with any longer."
