Tom Hanks recently had a loss in his family – the beloved family dog Monty. Hanks posts to his WhoSay website, “Monty. Deep brown eyes, noble demeanor, finest dog ever. A sad day. Goodbye Big Boy. Hanx.”

Poor Tom. We lost a beloved kitty named Alex almost two years ago and we still miss him a lot. And Hanks’ fans realize how hard it must be too – there are almost 300 comments of condolences on the site.

Hanks is currently starring in “Extremely Loud & Incredibly Close” as a New York man who is killed in the 9/11 attacks and leaves behind a wife and son. The movie is divisive among the critics.
