Rita Wilson on a moment she shared with husband Tom Hanks: "If love is a went through me"

Coming up this evening at 9 p.m., "Piers Morgan Tonight" welcomes actress and producer Rita Wilson for a candid and endearing primetime interview.

The wife of actor Tom Hanks, Wilson shares a heartwarming story of a special sentiment her husband once shared:

"I'll never forget, we were standing on the corner of 57th and 5th in New York, or 58th and 5th" recalled Wilson. "We were holding hands, and we were waiting for the traffic light to change. And he looked at me and he said, 'You know, I just want you to know, that you never have to change anything about who you are in order to be with me.'"

A veteran of more than two dozen films and television shows, Wilson released her debut musical album this week, dedicated it to Hanks, largely on the memory of that moment:

"Literally, a wave of - if love is a feeling, or a cellular thing that happens to your body, it went through me, and that's pretty much who he is, and how he's been."

Watch the clip, and tune in this evening at 9 p.m., as the woman credited as the driving force behind bringing "My Big Fat Greek Wedding" to the big screen, reveals the special Greek expression her mother uses to describe how love evolves within a relationship.
