In the Hanks video, the usually calm actor is visibly angry at those who almost hurt his wife Rita Wilson. The 65-year-old is seen hurling expletives while asking them to ‘back off’.

James, who saw the video, seemed confused and angry about the same. The Los Angeles Lakers star wondered why there was no personal space, siding with Hanks. He even added that any retaliation from Hanks would have only worked against the actor.
