Hanks to drink 'too much beer' for 60th

Tom Hanks has said he feels half his age as he looks forward to celebrating his 60th birthday with "a little too much beer".

The Oscar-winning actor said he has always felt younger than his years and that reaching 60 in July will be a "fabulous" milestone.

"I feel like I'm 32 years old, and when I was 32 I felt like I was 24, and when I was 24 I felt like I was 16, so it all works out, doesn't it?" he said.

"I know I'm 60, it's a fabulous number. After 24 it's just a reason to get together with friends and maybe drink a little too much beer, and I vow on July 9, I'll do that very thing."

Hanks was speaking at the premiere of his latest comedy-drama, A Hologram For The King, in which he plays a washed-up, unsuccessful businessman who travels to Saudi Arabia in hope to sell his new hologram technology to the king.

"Every day we take an action in some aspect of our life that could be our downfall," he warned at the BFI Southbank in London.

"If you don't call it right, you could put yourself in a hole that takes you a long time to get yourself out of."

Based on Dave Eggers' best-selling novel by the same name, the film is Hanks' second collaboration with Tom Tykwer since the director's adaptation of David Mitchell's Cloud Atlas.
