Celebrity Grub Hit-Or-Miss

Tom Hanks Made Fans Buy Girl Scout Cookies Before They Could Get A Picture

Tom Hanks really, really, really, really, really, really likes supporting the Girl Scouts of America.

He ran into a few entrepreneurial young ladies in Los Altos, CA, last Thursday where he was looking to get his son’s vintage typewriter repaired. As an avid collector, he ended up buying two more.

Incognito in a hat and sunglasses, he bought four boxes of cookies from the girls and donated $20 (I would’ve just bought more boxes, but I don’t have an Oscar or a generally pleasant demeanor). As Hanks walked away, they gradually realized who he was, so they asked for a picture.

The Academy Award-winning actor obliged them, but he didn’t stop there.

As passersby noticed his presence and requested photos, Hanks wouldn’t allow them to take one unless they bought some cookies from the Girl Scouts.

Talk about a celebrity endorsement!
