Hanks thinks it’s Aston Villa’s Cup
– Tom Hanks attracted attention on social media Sunday after the Aston Villa supporter posted a tweet appearing to celebrate the English side’s League Cup triumph – a month before the final.
The two-time Oscar-winning actor has long said he is a fan of the Birmingham club.
“Aston Villa took the Carabao Cup! Up the Villa! Hanx,” the 63-year-old wrote, referencing the sponsors name for the tournament.
Aston Villa beat Leicester last Tuesday to reach the final, where they will face holders and red-hot favourites Manchester City at Wembley on 1 March.
“Premature speculation?,” tweeted former England striker Gary Lineker in response.
Hanks will turn his focus back to films next weekend, when he will be hoping to win a third Academy Award. – AFP
