Is there any celebrity more lovable than Tom Hanks? If you said “yes,” I’m sorry, but you’re a liar. The mega-movie star has earned his reputation for being the nicest guy in Hollywood, and with every movie that comes out, our love for him grows a little bit more. If his latest film, the dramatic biopic Sully, has got you craving more Hanks, we’ve got you covered. Here are ten times Tom Hanks made us love him even more than we already did:

1. When he and Stephen Colbert cuddled some puppies.

AUGH SO CUTE.

 
 

2. When the Nerdist bribed him with a vintage typewriter to get him on their podcast

Hanks collects vintage typewriters, so clearly this was the perfect way to get on his good side.
 

3. When he performed Kid Theatre on The Tonight Show With Jimmy Fallon

The Tonight Show crew asked a bunch of kids to write scenes based simply on the title of Hanks’s film, Bridge of Spies. The resulting scripts – and the performances – are perfect.
 

4. When he and Meg Ryan finally got together at the end of You’ve Got Mail

Whatever you think about his character (after all, he did put his supposed “true love” out of business and then lied to her for weeks), this moment is impossible not to love.
 

5. When he tried – and failed – to make Tom Selleck laugh

(Hey, we chuckled.)
 

6. When he explained why you’ll never see him play the villain

In an interview with Total Film magazine, Hanks explained why he never takes typical “bad guy” roles. “Look, playing bad, I am not interested, ever,” he said. “I don’t want to see bad guys who are just bad, you know? Why are they bad? There are evil villains out there like, I don’t know, Iago, that are intriguing to play. But bad guys do not look bad – they are like you or me. You could have a knife in your shoe, you know?”
 

7. When he rocked out with Andy Samberg

Clearly he was having a ball (get it?).
 

8. When he performed slam poetry inspired by Full House

He really is multi-talented.
 

9. Each and every time he said “Lieutenant Dan!” in Forrest Gump

Admit it: You’re hearing his voice saying it in your head right now.
 

10. And when he and James Cordon acted out Hanks’s entire film history – condensed, of course

We <3 you, Tom.
