Tom Hanks has that boy-next-door quality I find so appealing. I think he’s actually gotten nicer looking as he’s aged.
He’s not classically handsome, but there’s something about him in goofy roles or serious ones that has always struck me. I like his diversity, that his wife has a career, too, and that they produce some things together. It looks like a nice marriage from the outside looking in.
So it was a happy note I read in People last week, when some stars were asked about their Kindle machines:
Here is what good ol’ Tom had to say:
“I got a Kindle for newspapers and magazines, not for books. Quite frankly, I prefer to buy books from my neighborhood bookstore.”
See, I knew I liked him!
