Who doesn't love Tom Hanks? I mean, he's an incredible actor, he's funny, smart, kind, and he's one of the most generous humans around!

Well, we just might love him even more now, after watching this video released by Twitter Movies as a promotion for Hanks' role as Mr. Rogers in A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood. The video features Tom reading out a series of nice tweets and then reacting to them.

You will most likely have heard of Jimmy Kimmel's "Mean Tweets" segment, where celebrities read out insults that have been posted about them. Well, this one is like that, except, well, it's nice!

There are no clap backs in this clip, and there is no sarcasm or meanness. It's just Tom Hanks reading nice tweets and, at times, getting quite emotional about them.

Recently, Hanks did an interview with the New York Times, which focused on his philosophy of kindness and his real-life good deeds.
