Wilmer Valderrama is stepping away from his love life to focus on his acting career, with help from Tom Hanks. The former That '70s Show star recently split from his girlfriend, Disney starlet Demi Lovato.
Sorry though ladies, Wilmer is not looking for a new girlfriend; he’s enjoying the single life. “To me, right now, it’s all about my work,” he told In Touch as he kicked off Stride’s “Be Ridiculously Long Lasting” campaign.
Starring alongside Tom and Julia Roberts in the upcoming film Larry Crowne, Wilmer shared that it was a dream of his to work with such amazing actors. “I got quickly reminded of how much fun it’s supposed to be,” Wilmer said, thanks to Tom's sense of humor on set. “Seeing Tom going back to his old days is just so neat.”
Since this was one of the few comedy roles the 31-year-old actor has done since his sitcom ended in 2006, he took the advice from his on-screen idols to heart. “Tom really encouraged us to bring ourselves into the character-enhancing moments and to be funny.” Wilmer, who could “not keep a straight face” while watching Tom at work, believes their chemistry was magical. “We kind of have a really similar theory and we just clicked!”
