OnlyOnAOL: Aaron Eckhart reveals what it’s like being around Tom Hanks

Aaron Eckhart gets star-struck. Just like the rest of us. Only he doesn’t ask for autographs (or selfies).

Witness his reaction when he was shooting “Sully,” the story of how Capt. Chesley “Sully” Sullenberger (Tom Hanks) landed his US Airways jet in the Hudson River in 2009 after the plane was struck by geese. Hanks, says Eckhart, “is a sweetheart.”

Here’s Eckhart’s very cute recollection of one very pivotal day playing Hanks’ copilot.

“We’re in a Clint Eastwood movie with Tom Hanks. You get the best of the best. We’re shooting on Fifth Avenue. There’s nobody on Fifth Avenue but us. Imagine that. All those cars are ours. All those people are ours. That’s the power of Clint and Tom.”

But there’s more. He exits his trailer. And what does he witness?

“And then I see it. Clint and Tom are talking to Steven Spielberg.”

You know. Just another day in the workplace.
