Most of us would probably recognise Bill Murray or Tom Hanks walking down the street but one particular photo has left the internet very confused.

Is it Bill Murray or Tom Hanks? The man who played Forrest Gump or the much-loved Ghostbuster Peter Venkman? It seems a lot of people just can't decide.

A photo featuring one of the actors copying the reaction of a crying baby next to their grinning mother is once again being shared online.

It was originally posted on the Reasons My Son Is Crying Facebook page by Laura DiMichele-Ross who has since confirmed which actor she managed to grab a photo with at the St. Andrew's golf course in Scotland.


"It's totally Bill. I can vouch 'cause I'm the one in the photo with the massive grin thinking 'oh my god this is going to be an awesome photo!'" she explained.

She joked: "It's already going to be the first picture we show future girlfriends. If they don't know who Bill Murray is they're out the door."

The photo has attracted dozens of comments, one said: "This picture is important. I personally feel like it's irresponsible to not share this with as many people as humanly possible.

Hanks also appears to enjoy having photos taken with fans after grabbing a selfie with a couple on their wedding day in Central Park last month.
