No, Tom Hanks and Rita Wilson weren't yelling at a Cannes red carpet employee

Tom Hanks and Rita Wilson are once again proving that they're the internet's favorite parents after reports claimed they got into a "heated altercation" on a red carpet at the Cannes Film Festival — but it turns out, they just couldn't hear anything.

Late Tuesday night, photos surfaced of Hanks and Wilson apparently yelling at a staffer working the red carpet for their new film Asteroid City. Hanks looked angry while pointing at the unnamed man, while his wife Wilson was also holding up a finger and looking upset while saying something. But Wilson refuted those false claims on her Instagram story, revealing the most relatable reason for her and Hanks to have been raising their voices.

"This is called I can't hear you. People are screaming. What did you say? Where are we supposed to go?" Wilson wrote. "But that doesn't sell stories! Nice try. We had a great time! Go see Asteroid City!"
