You've Got Mail, the cinematic ode to AOL that reunited Nora Ephron, Meg Ryan and Tom Hanks – a trifecta that previously made rom-com magic in 1993's Sleepless in Seattle – turned 15 this week.

In it, Ryan and Hanks played Kathleen and Joe, a pair of Upper West Side business rivals who fall in love over email without knowing each other's true identity.

The child of Day-Lewis and his former girlfriend, actress Isabelle Adjani, this novice rapper appears to have an appreciation for fall colors, based on the video for "Green Auras." Day, decked out in a backwards cap and backpack, raps about drug culture, life at Sarah Lawrence College and the art of chilling. He proves his ability to rhyme, but the true test of his spitting skills relies on one question: Can he beat Tom Hanks's son, Chet Haze, in a Hollywood royalty rap battle?

What's better than meeting your idol? Meeting your idol and finding out that he's even nicer than you imagined he'd be.

That's what happened back in March when Sarah Moretti got to meet Tom Hanks backstage at his Broadway show, Lucky Man.

In a series of three videos that are getting buzz this week, the Oscar winner was wonderfully sweet and friendly to his superfan, who has autism.
