Tom Hanks may officially consider himself Greek.
Greece's President Prokopis Pavlopoulos has signed an honorary naturalization order allowing the 63-year-old actor to claim Greek citizenship, his office told The Associated Press on Friday.
Hanks frequently spends his summer vacation on the Greek island of Antiparos and his wife, actress and producer Rita Wilson, is of Greek and Bulgarian ancestry.
Hanks has also produced several movies in the country, including the 2008 musical "Mamma Mia!" and the 2009 comedy "My Life in Ruins," NBC News reported.
Under Greek law, honorary naturalization may be granted to people “who have provided exceptional services to the country or whose naturalization serves the public interest."
