While chatting with Oprah in 2001, Hanks opened up about his childhood and how it influenced his relationship with Rita.

 ‘I married into a classic old-world family structure in which people like to spend time with each other and construct their lives so they can. That hadn’t been part of my existence up till then,’ he explained.’ There’s such an advantage to being involved in the day-to-day details of each other’s lives. It’s a marvelous fabric to exist in.’

The A Man Called Otto star continued, ‘The success of our relationship was a matter of timing, maturity, and our willingness to have an intimate connection.’
