Perhaps caught up in "The Social Network" mania, Tom Hanks has finally joined Facebook. The Oscar winner launched his profile page yesterday, with his first status update announcing, "OFFICIALLY on Facebook!"
Hanks' page includes several studio shots of the star — uploaded in June 2009 — as well as a black-and-white shot of him looking cool while driving down a road in sunglasses.
The rest of the page is largely blank, although the 54-year-old actor — who had almost 350,000 friends as of press time — lists his info as follows:
"I'm that actor in some of the movies you liked and some you didn't. Sometimes I'm in pretty good shape, other times I'm not. Hey, you gotta live, you know?"
