Tom Hanks: two-time Oscar winner and serious Redditor.

BAFTA Film Awards 2014 - Arrivals - London

LAST YEAR, TOM Hanks participated in a Reddit AMA.

As you might expect, he let his Reddit account (Tom_Hanks_) go completely dormant once the Q&A had concluded.

But on Monday, he signed back into Reddit and randomly commented on a load of different Reddit threads.  (13, to be exact.)

He answered questions from the r/AskReddit, r/Movie and r/AskHistorians.

Because why not?
