Tom Hanks’ once apparent lack of a sexual confidence is now the reason he loves getting naked at hotels.

Yes, you read that previous sentence correctly. The Daily Mail covered a book about the legendary actor by Gavin Edwards and the details are downright bizarre. The “Saving Private Ryan” actor “had no sexual confidence” for years. That all changed when he met his current wife, and it had a big impact on his life. (SLIDESHOW: These Women On Instagram Hate Wearing Clothes)

The Daily Mail reported the following during a piece on a book about Hank’s life:

It wasn’t until he hooked up with actress Rita Wilson who he attributes to saving him sexually with her love – that has freed him so much he’s now a practicing exhibitionist.

‘Hanks now likes to walk around on hotel room patios naked,’ writes the author.

‘That’s as close as I get to a feeling of anonimity and power,’ says Tom. 

This is just such a wild situation that I’m not even sure I know what to make of it. Imagine being at a hotel and seeing Tom Hanks from across the way naked on a balcony. If this is all true, I’m shocked nobody has ever photographed him and tried to cash in. It’s not like Tom Hanks isn’t extremely recognizable. (SLIDESHOW: 142 Times Josephine Skriver Barely Wore Anything)

Also, I’m not sure how sexually deprived you need to be before the countermeasure is to just hangout in a semi-public place naked. For every action there is usually an equal reaction, but letting it all hang out on a hotel balcony hardly seems equal.

Tom Hanks is a legend in the game, and there’s no doubt about that. I guess when you’re a legendary guy you can kind of just do whatever you want. What a time to be alive.
