Catch Me If You Can! Tom Hanks turns heads as he speeds up on a trendy Vespa scooter in Los Angeles










On the big screen, he traveled all over America and drifted across the ocean on a makeshift raft.

He seemed to be having a good time as he raced through the sunny streets of Santa Monica astride his Vespa.

The 59-year-old looked remarkably sharp for his age in a gray t-shirt, shorts and sandals combo.

Happy Days favorite Tom completed his look with a white hard hat and a pair of sunglasses.

In arguably his most iconic role in Forrest Gump, Tom has leaned on his swift feet to get around places ranging from Savannah, Georgia, to Vietnam.

But he managed to sate his love of horseback riding when he filmed the horrid romantic comedy Larry Crown in 2010.

The movie received horrendous reviews, but in despair, Tom tried to generate some interest by showing up to the premiere while riding a scooter.

His co-star Julia Roberts, who rode in the back of the bike with him during scenes in the film, was quick to point out that he was far from a fluent operator.

“He almost killed me,” she joked about filming with the veteran star. “He almost tore my leg off – The right leg!” “
