Tom Hanks, star of 'Splash' and 'The Man With One Red Shoe,' has a suggestion for aspiring actors -- become a bellhop.

'You put on the bellman suit and then perform the bellman role!' he said in an interview with Seventeen magazine. 'It's the greatest job - carrying bags for sports and entertainment figures. I carried Cher's bags when she was married to Gregg Allman. I gave Sidney Poitier a ride to the airport.' Hanks is now working on 'The Tie That Binds,' which is allowing him to find out about still another profession - advertising. 'I thought the entertainment industry was tough, loaded with sharks and cruelty,' he said. 'But nothing I've seen compares with advertising.'
