Los Angeles, Dec 23 (IANS) Actor Tom Hanks has over 50 typewriters which were made in the 1940s. He says he loves collecting them and uses them too.

Asked what he wants for Christmas, Hanks told “Antique WWII typewriters. Takes a repair guy a month to get them working, and I write my letters on them. I own over 50.”

While he loves the old-fashioned way of writing his letters, Hanks is also an avid user of social media. Earlier he used Twitter to thank a man who had found and returned his lost credit card.

He had posted: “A guy named Tony found my credit card on the street in New York City and returned it! Tony! You make this city even greater! Thanks.”
