Warning: Reading this interview will make your heart melt.

Tom Hanks, who has already proved himself to be the best on a number of occasions, appeared on The Ellen DeGeneres Show on Wednesday, Dec. 11, where he opened up about his marriage to wife Rita Wilson, with whom he recently celebrated a milestone 25 years of marriage.

"You both just celebrated, both obviously together, 25 years of marriage," Ellen DeGeneres congratulated the actor, who was also nominated for a SAG Award this morning for Outstanding Performance by a Male Actor in a Leading Role for Captain Phillips.

"Yes, 25 years," Hanks said in reply.

"You're a good couple," the talk-show host added of the longtime lovebirds, who have stood the test of time in Tinseltown, despite the endless splits in Hollywood.

And that's when Tom really touched our hearts (even if he wasn't entirely serious!).

"I'm not one to suck up to the audience, but the only thing we ever argue about is who loves each other more…" the 57-year-old Oscar-winner spilled.

" sweet," Ellen responded with a laugh.

As for the couple's big anniversary plans?

"We decided to celebrate our 25th wedding anniversary by postponing the actual party," Hanks explained. "I was working on Broadway at the time so, we can't have a party now, so later on in the year we're just going to have a big blast and we have yet to figure out when it's going to be."

To which DeGeneres, of course, replied: "Let me know, I‘m there…"

"Dancing the night away…" the actor added, proving he knows the funnygal all too well.

Congrats to the couple on their milestone anniversary!
