Tom Hanks - Tom Hanks 'terrified' granddaughter with Winnie the Pooh ride

Tom Hanks ''terrified'' his granddaughter by taking her on a Winnie the Pooh ride at Disneyland.

The Hollywood star - who portrays Walt Disney in his new film 'Saving Mr Banks' - took two-year-old Olivia to the California theme park during a day of filming and treated her to a trip on one of the rides, but he didn't get the reaction he expected.

He said: ''As a grandparent you see no reason that your granddaughter shouldn't be delighted to take a ride on the Winnie the Pooh Adventure. I thought, 'It's Winnie the Pooh. Its Kanga and Roo and Owl. It's Christopher Robin. It's fun! It's going to be a blast!'

''Well, my granddaughter was terrified. The noise, the big spinning bears. She'll be haunted for the rest of her years by Winnie the Pooh and the loud, short ride her grandfather forced her to do.''

Meanwhile, the 67-year-old actor admits he had to put a great deal of effort into replicating the legendary animator's famous cough.

Speaking to Us Weekly magazine, he explained: ''He smoked three packs a day! You knew when Walt was coming for a visit to your office, because you could hear him coughing form down the hall by the elevator.''
