Rising star Henry Golding has become a hot commodity in Hollywood thanks to his acting debut in “Crazy Rich Asians”.
The 31-year-old actor recently scored front row seats at the New York Fashion Week, courtesy of Tom Ford. He was comfortably nestled in between Vogue’s editor-in-chief Anna Wintour and rapper Cardi B. However, the person who got him starstruck was Tom Hanks.
“Some say you should never meet your hero’s… In the case of @tomhanks, nothing could be further from the case. He is wonderful, everything I ever wished and looked up to. This is a pic of Anna being the consummate host and me totally fan boying over @ritawilson and Tom… ?,” Golding wrote on his Instagram post.
At first glance, the seating arrangements seemed like an odd pairing. Having said that, the Malaysian actor and Cardi are at the top of their games right now. Cardi has cemented herself as one of the biggest rappers in the music industry. Anna Wintour is Anna Wintour. And well, Tom Hanks and Tom Ford share the same name.
As the leading man in “Crazy Rich Asians“, the rom-com has been breaking all sorts of records in the box office. It just so happens that Golding has been wearing Tom Ford outfits during his movie premieres. Coincidence? We think not.

During the after-party, the handsome hunk was asked about his Fashion Week debut. “You know, I was a hair stylist before . . . I used to be back there,” Golding pointed to the back door where the models were emerging.
He also shared that he was “cotton mouth the entire time” when he was sitting next to Wintour. Tom Hanks and Rita Wilson were next to her.
Golding will soon appear on the thriller “A Simple Favor”, starring opposite Anna Kendrick and Blake Lively.
