When asked by a UK user on reddit for something “that shows the dark side of Tom”, the reply came that film star Tom Hanks relishes Aston Villa victories.
The actor kicked off an AmA (Ask me Anything) session on the social network with:
Hi reddit, Tom Hanks here. Ask Me Anything.
I’m that guy in movies that sometimes can be seen more than once. In that I abhor self-promotion, I’ll leave it to you guys to figure out what movies those are (hint: my next movie comes out October 11 ).
Looking forward to taking your questions!
Will be Reddit-ing about these guys: Faisal, Mahat, Barkhad, and Paul. Hanx http://t.co/twTgDnuoLB

One of the first questions asked was from a user calling themselves Asl687:
Mr Hanks.. Hello from UK.. One quick pointless question but are you really as nice as you seem. Tell us one thing that shows the dark side of Tom!
… and there was a blunt reply shortly afterwards from Hanks, a known Villa fan, himself:
I relish Aston Villa victories.
Another user, EstherHarshom, then responded with:
Good God. He said dark, not evil.
Hanks later signed off with:
Hey, thanks very much! I gotta go, but thank you for the questions. I had a great time.
