Tom Hanks: actor, American treasure, everyone's favorite pen pal? Apparently. One fan recently sent Hanks a letter and a selfie, and was surprised when she quickly received a letter and a selfie in return.

The fan's friend posted photos to Reddit of the Polaroid selfie and typewritten letter she received in the mail from none other than Tom Hanks.

Note how Hanks is holding the fan's selfie in his selfie. Selfie-ception.


In the letter, Hanks talks about Toronto and asks the fan if she's ready for Christmas. He also admits that he often finds himself humming the music from That Thing You Do, like the fan does.

"This Polaroid has been developing as I've been typing. The things is scary," Hanks writes in closing.

Tom Hanks is so good to his fans, you guys.
