Julia Roberts & Tom Hanks are W Magazine’s June 2011 cover stars, photographed by Mario Sorrenti . On the cover Julia wears Dolce & Gabbana dress, Burberry belt and styled by L’Wren Scott; Tom Hanks wears Dolce & Gabbana shirt and Tom Ford suit.

Promoting their new film together, Larry Crowne, the recession-era story of one man’s reinvention after losing his job at Walmart. Inside they chat on adult education, starting out in Hollywood and the power of optimism.
I love this question and answer with Tom about his career change:

At some point in your career, you changed from playing the romantic guy in Splash to the serious Philadelphia guy. How did that happen?
“I told my agents that I wasn\’t going to play pussies anymore. I was tired of playing, “Oh, boo-hoo—I was in love, but oh, boo-hoo-hoo.” There comes an age when you can\’t do that anymore. I wanted to play men instead of boys. In your mid-30s, it\’s time to start playing guys of compromise. And as you get older, men of bitter compromise [Laughs].”

And this about working with Julia Roberts … talk about being real:

Had you met before you worked together?
“We had said howdy-do at those famous-people-club meetings: “Hi! I\’m famous, you\’re famous, and there\’s a camera on us now!” And then we did Charlie Wilson\’s War together a few years ago.”

And Julia on being a young actress today:

You became powerful and famous early on—after Pretty Woman, you were a huge international star. You were only 21. Was that overwhelming?
“No, because the business was different then. It was a less loud, in-your-face sort of business. It would be awful to be a young actress today. Back in the good old days, before e-mail [internet I think she means], you could decide how you wanted to be, how you wanted to define yourself.”
