I'd rather chat to the baby: The Oscar-winner made friends with five-month-old Tyler Sercombe
He's a double Oscar-winner and has been at the top of Hollywood's A-list for over two decades.
But Tom Hanks found himself surrounded by reality stars and glamour models this evening at the supposedly glittering premiere for his new film Larry Crowne.
The actor looked a little bemused as he posed on the red carpet, probably wishing he had his co-star Julia Roberts by his side to add a little more star power to the event.
Roberts will undoubtedly show up to promote the film at the LA premiere on June 27, but she left Tom to go it alone at the screening at Westfield shopping centre in London today.
Who are these people? Tom Hanks looks a little bemused as he poses on the red carpet of his film premiere for Larry Crowne at Westfield
Tom will have had trouble recognising most of the attendees, with the exception perhaps of Ronnie Wood and David Hasselhoff, who both brought along their young girlfriends.
Other than the Rolling Stone, the Baywatch star and one Cherie Blair, the guests at the premiere were primarily made up of ITV2's finest.
Colourful: Nicola McLean chose to show off her cleavage at the event, Kerry Katona opted for legs, while Danielle Brown broke traditional style rules and showed both
Kerry Katona posed up with her fellow Can Associates clients Nicola McLean and Danielle Brown.
Kerry looked svelte in a her multi-coloured mini dress, which showed off her golden tan from her and Danielle's recent girls trip to Marbella.
Nicola wore a black jumpsuit with a plunging neckline that put her surgically enhanced decolletage on prominent display.
Reality stars: The Only Way Is Essex stars Sam Faiers (left) and Lydia Bright both attended
TOWIE night out: Sam posed with her boyfriend Joey Essex on the red carpet, while co-star Harry Derbidge also attended
Elen Rivas was more casual - and far more demure than Nicola - in black jeans and clogs with a T-shirt and tweed jacket.
Also attending the screening were stars of The Only Way Is Essex.
Lydia Bright wore a gold dress with sequinned embellishment and nude heels, while her co-star Sam Faiers wore a nude maxi skirt with a cropped leather jacket.
Someone Hanks might recognise: Ronnie Wood added some star power, attending with his girlfriend Ana Araujo
Sam and Lydia were joined by Sam's boyfriend Joey Essex and their co-star Herry Derbidge.
She tweeted from the screening: 'Was in the same cinema with calzaghe, ronnie woods, the hoff, Tom hanks, and many more! Great film. X x'
Joe Calzaghe and Kristina Rihanoff, Sophie Ellis-Bextor and KT Tunstall all attended.

Lovely ladies: (L-R) Leonora Crichlow went for head-to-toe black, Katie Waissel showed off a new 'do and Sophie Ellis Bextor wore a flirty love heart dress
Former X Factor contestant Katie Waissel debuted yet another new hairstyle, arriving with long curly blonde locks after wearing her hair in a short crop for several months.
Tom stars in the romantic comedy (which he also directed), about a man who loses his job and reinvents himself by returning to college.
There, he develops a crush on one of his teachers, played by Roberts. The pair last starred together in Charlie Wilson's War in 2007.
