Rita Wilson Music Career: Actress, Singer Dazzles On Red Carpet (PHOTOS)

Looking good, Rita! Tom Hanks' wife, actress Rita Wilson, showed off her curves Wednesday night in a skin-baring, navy blue, bejeweled dress at the Beverly Hilton Hotel.

Wilson, who turned heads at the "Unforgettable Evening" charity event, has been a longtime supporter of women's cancer research, but is singing a new tune when it comes to her career. The "It's Complicated" actress is no longer lending her talents only to the film world: Wilson has recently embarked on a singing career.

The 55-year-old beauty's debut album is an ode to the good old radio days, with the title "AM/FM."

"That time period was hugely influential on me as a kid and as a teenager,” Wilson said of the influence that the '60s and '70s have on her music. "I'd spend hours and hours lying on my bed, holding up the albums, reading the liner notes, and learning all the words to these songs that expressed what I was feeling or fantasizing about."

Wilson's debut album, which features her first single, "Come See About Me," drops May 8.
