Tom Hanks says he’s as ‘upbeat’ as his character in ‘Larry Crowne’

Washington: Tom Hanks has revealed that he is upbeat and has the same get-up-and-go attitude as his character ‘Larry’ in his new movie.

The actor-and-director played the titular role in new movie ‘Larry Crowne’ , about a man who decides to reinvent himself after losing his job.

“I would like to say that I`m as bad a dresser as Larry is at the beginning of the movie, no I am. Larry wakes up one morning and says, ``Okay, how am I going to improve things today?`` I`d like to think I`m a little upbeat like that,”
Contactmusic quoted the actor as saying.

In the film, Hanks meets a teacher at the college (Julia Roberts) and he decides to enlist following, which he falls for her.

The 54-year-old star also added that he never had an educator quite like her.

“I didn`t have teachers like Julia Roberts, but I had some that I had crushes on. There weren`t quite as long and lean as Julia was, but they were something like that,” he said.
