They're both incredibly famous ... and incredibly RICH ... so when Tom Hanks and Bruce Springsteen took their wives out on a double date last night ... WHO PAID THE BILL??
Tom and Bruce -- along with Rita Wilson and Patti Scialfa -- hit up Wolfgang Puck's famous Spago restaurant in Beverly Hills last night ... strolling into the restaurant together.
So, now for the money -- Bruce and Tom are each financial powerhouses ... who've each raked in hundreds of millions of dollars throughout their respective careers. So when the bill came, who actually pulled out the wallet???
