Tom Hanks refunds disappointed fans their movie money

Tom Hanks refunds disappointed fans their movie money

It seems Tom Hanks is Hollywood’s ultimate nice guy after he refunded fans their movie ticket money when they complained about his latest film.

The 55-year-old actor recently gave a couple $25 after they told him that they disliked his latest film Larry Crowne, the US’s National Enquirer reported.

Hanks, who stars alongside Julia Roberts in the film, began chatting to the couple while filling his car at a petrol station near his home in Pacific Palisades, California.

The pair spotted Hanks and went over to tell him they had just seen his latest film. When he asked them what they thought of it, the man told him “it wasn’t that good”.

Despite the man’s wife trying to ease the situation by saying they had come to expect more from their favourite actor, Hanks responded: “Gee, I’m sorry you were disappointed, how about letting me refund your ticket money?”

The couple were reluctant to take the cash but eventually accepted the $25 before leaving.

Hanks also co-wrote the script and directed the film which bombed at the US box office. Critics have named the romantic comedy the biggest flop of Hank’s career.

At least he seems to have a good attitude about the whole situation.
