According to CNN, Pavlopoulos has signed an honorary citizenship allowing Hanks and his family to adopt the new nationality. “Tom Hanks is a person who showed real interest” “Tom Hanks is a person who showed real interest in the suffering of people during the fires in Mati, and also drew attention to this issue in the media,” the Greek Interior Minister said. He thereby refers to the fires in the Attica region last July. The minister also thought that Hanks is a good representative of Greece, because he often travels to the country and even has houses in Antiparos. Hank’s wife, Wilson, has a Greek mother herself and was raised in Greek Orthodox. Hanks and Wilson have produced several films in Greece, including My Big Fat Greek Wedding and Mamma Mia !. To really get Greek nationality, Hanks and his family must take an oath with the minister within a year.
