- Toy Story 4 stars Tom Hanks and Tim Allen have been friends for decades.
- The actors recently promoted the film in an adorable Q&A video about their relationship.
The two actors, widely known for lending their voices to Woody and Buzz in the Toy Story franchise, recently got together and proved that their real-life relationship is just as strong as the one between their iconic on-screen characters.
Tom, who stars as Woody in Toy Story 4 (and is sporting a very long beard, by the way), says he can't even remember the first time he met Tim. He also joked that his co-star has been playing Buzz Lightyear for "forty five years." In reality, the fictional Space Ranger first appeared on the big screen in 1995. Since then, Buzz and Woody (read: Tom and Tim) have been inseparable.
In fact, the dynamic duo claims they're so close that they don't even need to catch up when they get together.
"We don't necessarily say 'Hey, how ya doin?' We just sit down and start getting into it," Tom explained. Tim added that "in a weird way," their relationship is just like Woody and Buzz's.
"We end up sort of, like, speaking this secret language," he said. Still, that doesn't mean they always see eye to eye.
When asked to describe each other in one word, Tim immediately said Tom is "skilled." Tom, however, jokingly described Tim as "cranky."
Much like Woody and Buzz, the actors like to mess around and push the other's buttons (or, in Woody's case, pull his string). But at the end of the day, they always have each other's backs.
"I will say, Woody found a great friend in Buzz. And Tom has found a great friend in Tim," Tom admitted, speaking in the third person.
"I totally agree. I adore our friendship and I thank you two for getting these two as buddies," Tim said, gesturing first to the toys and then to himself and Tom.
We didn't think it was possible to love the Toy Story movies any more, but this just pushed us over the edge. 😭
