Tom Hanks. Two-time Oscar winner, actor, producer… and Lost Property collector. Seriously. If you’ve misplaced something in New York City, chances are Tom Hanks knows where it is…
The 59-year-old has been baffling his Twitter followers by posting images of lost items on social media.
Mitten? Shoe? Hat? Don't know, but it was lost @ 70th and B'way. Hanx pic.twitter.com/RJ1lkOIDzX— Tom Hanks (@tomhanks) March 6, 2016
Hanks is spotting all sorts, from socks and children’s booties to, most recently, a fork. But the A-lister’s Twitter feed is primarily made up of other people’s lost gloves.

2 shadows but just a single lost glove. Bittersweet. Hanx pic.twitter.com/oDfWQovATV— Tom Hanks (@tomhanks) February 20, 2016
See the glove? Lost and lonely. Sacre bleu! Hanx pic.twitter.com/zoRpI3oTdM— Tom Hanks (@tomhanks) February 21, 2016
Strange, right? But Hanks’s habit has had some good results, previously reuniting a student with her lost ID, after he tweeted a picture of the card.
Perhaps that success has inspired him to set up a side business to keep him busy between blockbusters?
