In a stunt that was reminiscent of Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes’ arrival at the War of the Worlds premiere aboard a motorcycle in 2005, Oscar-winning actor Tom Hanks rode into the Larry Crowne premiere in LA on a moped last night.
SEE JULIA ROBERTS TALK ABOUT LARRY CROWNE
Looking frankly adorable in a helmet, Ray-Bans, a navy jacket and jeans, Hanks united with his wife, Rita Wilson and co-star Julia Roberts on the red carpet, where she flashed her trademark toothy grin and stopped to sign autographs to fans. Roberts looked sleek and totally co-ordinated with Hanks in her navy bustier suit by Gucci jazzed up with an emerald green beaded necklace.
In the film, written and directed by Hanks, Julia plays a professor at the community college frequented by Hanks’ character, Larry Crowne, after he loses his job. The duo discover love and fun as they ride around town on a moped with Crowne’s new group of friends - a gang of scooter-riding outcasts. Could we have another Oscar winner on our hands?
