National treasure Tom Hanks transformed from actor to protector when a group of crazed fans got too close to his wife, Rita Wilson.

The Oscar-winning actor became enraged when the overzealous group nearly knocked over Wilson, who ended up losing her footing and wobbling away, while out in New York City Wednesday night.

“Stop it!” Wilson, 65, shouted.

“My wife? Back the f–k off! Knocking over my wife?!” Hanks, also 65, then screamed before the couple hustled into a waiting car.

One fan could then be heard apologizing, saying, “Sorry about that, Tom.”

The “Forrest Gump” star has been on a press tour to promote his upcoming Baz Luhrmann-directed film, “Elvis,” for a few weeks. Earlier this month, he attended a screening in Brisbane, Australia, alongside the lead actor, Austin Butler.

Wilson and Hanks have been married for 34 years. They met in 1981 on the set of “Bosom Buddies,” a sitcom that ran from 1980 to 1982.

At the time, Hanks was still married to his first wife, college sweetheart Samantha Lewes, with whom he had two children, actor son Colin Hanks, 44, and daughter Elizabeth Hanks, 40.

Tom and Wilson went on to welcome two sons of their own: actor and rapper Chet Hanks, 31, and Truman Hanks, 26.

Chet has battled with his own demons over the years but just recently marked nine months of sobriety. Despite his dad’s flawless reputation, Chet claimed in February that he did not have a “strong male role model” growing up.

“‘You have all these things that they want, so they are trying to f–king throw their shade at you so you can feel s–tty about yourself because they are jealous.’ I needed to hear that,” Chet explained.

“I didn’t have anyone to tell me that. This is me now telling the younger version of myself what I needed to hear then.”
