Tom Hanks gives generous tip at restaurant

Los Angeles, The Oscar-winning actor Tom Hanks went to a restaurant in Boston for a lunch with friends and gave a generous tip to its staff.

The 60-year-old star headed to the private dining room at Pier 6, where he enjoyed the New England clam chowder and lamb gyros and also made sure to stop and give the staff an extra thanks while leaving the restaurant, reported People magazine.

"On his way out of the restaurant, Hanks made sure to stop and give the crew an extra thanks, and in his best Boston accent, commented on how he 'loved the chowdah,' a staff member said.

"A woman made an anonymous reservation requesting the private dining room, and next thing you know, Tom Hanks walks

"He was very friendly and gracious with our staff, and a great tipper," the staffer added.

Hanks also recently popped into a couple's wedding photoshoot in New York's Central Park.
