Charlize Theron-Tom Hanks

LOS ANGELES: “Mad Max: Fury Road” actress Charlize Theron has revealed she had a childhood crush on Hollywood star Tom Hanks.


The 40-year-old star was infatuated with the actor during her formative years and often imagined herself as one of his glamorous female co-stars such as Meg Ryan, with whom he starred in a string of hit movies including 1993’s “Sleepless in Seattle” and 1998’s “You’ve Got Mail”.

“I grew up watching the movies of Tom Hanks. He was like a ‘boyfriend’. When I was eight, I would walk around like I was one of the girls in a Tom Hanks movie. So I have a restraining order from his wife!” she said.
