If I lose my job, my kids will feed me
Two-time Oscar winner Tom Hanks was the showstopper at ScreenSingapore, a first-of-its-kind cinema event recently held in Singapore. ScreenSingapore concluded with the Asia premiere of Larry Crowne, a film that Hanks has directed, co3-produced and co-written.
Hanks was amiable, engaging and enthusiastic. There was no trace of jet-lag or fatigue as he interacted with journalists on Larry Crowne, which marks his return to direction after 15 years.
It also features him in the lead role of Larry, an ordinary man who reinvents himself when faced with extra-ordinary circumstances.
He signed autographs, posed for photographs and enthusiastically inquired: What should I do in Singapore?
Is this your first time in Singapore?
Yes, I have never been to Singapore. What does one do here? I hear the Night Safari is great. Should I trade in stocks? Play golf? I don’t know what I’m supposed to do while I’m here.
