Tom Hanks stars alongside Julia Roberts and his wife, Rita Wilson, in new film Larry Crowne, but only he attended the London premiere.
The 54-year-old actor explained their absence, saying: “I know, I’m all alone here. Julia, she has three kids so when she’s done with a movie, she pretends she never made the movie and it’s up to us to talk to her about it.
“My wife is at home because yesterday she had our granddaughter all to herself and she wasn’t about to pass that up by coming to this fabulous shopping centre”.
Producer Gary Goetzman also commented on the leading lady’s non-appearance, saying: “Julia Roberts is doing so much in America and she was here for ‘Eat, Pray, Love’ forever”, adding she had told him: “They’re sick of me over there'”.
Larry Crowne is released in UK cinemas on July 1.
