25 Tom Hanks tweets that prove he's America's dad through and through

From public appearances to social media presence, the 65-year-old has proven himself to be a larger-than-life father figure whose warm smile could dissolve all your problems.

The year was 2006. Holding a beer with one hand and a grilled cheeseburger fresh off the grill with the other, a baby blue polo and khakis sporting Tom Hanks knowingly winked at readers from the cover of Esquire magazine's June edition. In big bold letters, the headline read: "Confessions of the Most Normal Guy in Hollywood." The cover practically screamed "American dad" and in the decade and a half since, the 'Forrest Gump' star has further established himself worthy of this title. From public appearances to social media presence, the 65-year-old has proven himself to be a larger-than-life father figure whose warm smile could dissolve all your problems.

Nowhere is it more obvious than on Hanks' Twitter account where his self-description gives the uninitiated a taste of what to expect. "I'm that actor in some of the movies you liked and some you didn't. Sometimes I'm in pretty good shape, other times I'm not. Hey, you gotta live, you know?" it reads. Does it get more dad than that?

Here are 25 tweets from the universally beloved actor that reveal exactly why the internet goes gaga over him:
