Tom Hanks and Tim Allen Still Have a Close Relationship After Toy Story

Tim Allen confirms that his friendship with Tom Hanks goes beyond Toy Story.

Actor Tim Allen recently opened up about his relationship with longtime “Toy Story” co-star Tom Hanks when he appeared as a guest on the “Kelly Clarkson Show”

Allen revealed the two often meet up and have “the most peculiar lunches,” which started during the production of the first “Toy Story” and have evolved to multiple times a year.

“We’re like two older women ’cause we will sit almost too close to each other at a booth, it’s just weird.”

“We have very different opinions on so many things,” Tim Allen added. “He’s really a wonderful and engaging person. And he’s the first guy that listens to me and doesn’t judge.”

He continued, “He’s a very different person than me, and he eats off my plate.”

Allen recalled the “Forrest Gump” star eating french fries off his plate while the two were in the middle of filming the first “Toy Story.” 

“He’s going, ‘Oh this is so much fun working with you.’ And I go, ‘These are my fries, that’s why they are in this area,'” Allen said as the audience laughed.

It is great to see “Woody” and “Buzz” share a real life friendship since the 90’s!
