Tom Hanks in Leicester Square last night

London, UK

The only man other than Humphrey Bogart to win back to back Oscars - Tom Hanks proved that premieres are much like a box of chocolates - you don't quite know what you're gonna get - as Forest Gump might say. It was a chill and rain-free evening as the fans felt the buzz of anticipation about Tom's appearance tonight; would he sign and pose? - he's notably frugal with the autographs. He did sign some, yet only a few - my friend in the fanline missed out because a professional hunter got his picture in front lightning quick. Director Mike Nichols signed with the fans and remarked the cancelled Golden Globes meant he was a double winner because not only would he be spared the pain of attending, any award would be delivered in the mail! Also there was Tara Palmer-Tomkinson who's always happy to spend time with the folks who travelled from as far as New York and Berlin to be here.
