Tom Hanks: Feels "lucky" to work with Sandra Bullock
Hollywood's first-row actor Tom Hanks has revealed that he considers himself "lucky" to be able to work with Sandra Bullock.
The actors were recently confirmed to appear together in the upcoming film adaptation of Jonathan Safran Foer's novel Extremely Loud & Incredibly Close.
Talking to MTV News, Hanks admitted that he is looking forward to the project as he has been a long-time fan of Bullock's work.
"Well, I have left a voicemail for Sandra... Sandy. Can I call her Sandy? I can call her Sandy. I think she called the office back, but I hope to talk to her very, very, very soon," he said.
"The story is magnificent. Eric Roth wrote a brilliant screenplay, which makes our lives very easy because you just read it and you say, 'I would be honoured to be a part of this'."
The Oscar winning actor continued: "I am a huge Sandra Bullock fan. I've only met her a couple of times. She is a magnificent actress.
"And every time we've seen her, even just as recently as The Proposal and The Blind Side we've thought, 'We'd be lucky to work with her'."
