'Where The Wild Things Are' Fan Tom Hanks 'Never Attacked The Dog With A Fork'

Last night, MTV's Eric Ditzian had the opportunity to speak with Tom Hanks on the red carpet at the New York premiere of "Where the Wild Things Are." The movie and classic children's book on which it is based follows a young boy who harnesses his inner wild thing, traveling to a faraway island populated by talking beasts with funny names like Carol (a dude) and Ira. In the video below, Hanks talks about his own childhood and the particular ways in which he connected with his own inner wild thing.
