Tom Hanks thinks he is "upbeat".

The actor-and-director played the titular role in new movie 'Larry Crowne' - about a man who decides to reinvent himself after losing his job - and he likes to think he has the same get-up-and-go attitude as his character.

He told BANG Showbiz: "I would like to say that I'm as bad a dresser as Larry is at the beginning of the movie, no I am. Larry wakes up one morning and says, 'Okay, how am I going to improve things today?' I'd like to think I'm a little upbeat like that."

In the film, Tom meets a teacher at the college (Julia Roberts) he decides to enlist at who he falls for, and the 54-year-old star adds he never had a educator quite like her.

He joked: "I didn't have teachers like Julia Roberts, but I had some that I had crushes on. There weren't quite as long and lean as Julia was, but they were something like that."
