Tom Hanks and Rita Wilson have described their 28-year marriage as the "foundation of their family" as they won rare apologies from American tabloids over false divorce stories.

The couple, long regarded as having one of the most stable relationships in Hollywood, said articles in the National Enquirer and Star magazines were "lies we would not put up with any longer".

The publications, both owned by American Media Inc, have now apologised for stories that claimed the actors were divorcing and Hanks was having an affair.

A joint statement was released to The Hollywood Reporter, which Wilson linked to on Twitter with the caption: "We got a rare apology".
