Tom Hanks has openly admitted that he has acted in several films.
The actor has been an integral part of the Hollywood scene since the late 1980s, starring in acclaimed films, among others Large, toy story, The soldier James Ryan And Catch Me If You Can.
Hanks won back-to-back Oscars in 1994 and 1995 for Forrest Gump And Philadelphiawith the Captain Phillips The actor has been nominated for Best Actor three more times.
His most recent Best Supporting Actor nomination was in 2020 for his role as Fred Rogers in A nice day in the neighborhood.
Though Hanks has been fortunate enough to star in acclaimed projects, things haven’t always gone so well for the actor. In fact, he’s admitted that he’s “been in some movies I hate.”
Speak withThe New YorkerHanks said, “Okay, let’s face it: we’ve all seen the movies we hate. I’ve been in some movies that I hate. You’ve seen some of my films and hate them.”
Though he didn’t give specifics, some of the films that are among Hanks’ weakest are included The bonfire of vanitiesBrian De Palma’s Tom Wolfe adaptation from which the book grew Devil’s candy, Larry Crownewhich he directed, and Ron Howard’s Da Vinci Code films.
Speaking of the filmmaking process, Hanks said, “Here are the five points of the Rubicon that everyone who makes films crosses: The first Rubicon you cross is saying yes to film.” Your fate is sealed. You will star in this film.
“The second Rubicon is when you actually see the film you made. Either it works and it’s the film you wanted to make, or it doesn’t work and it’s not the film you wanted to make.”
He added, “It has nothing to do with Rubicon number three, the critical response to it.” Someone will say, “I hated it.” Other people may say, “I think it’s great.” Somewhere in between is what the movie actually is. The Fourth Rubicon is the film’s commercial achievement. Because if it doesn’t make money, your career will falter sooner than you wish. That’s just a fact. That’s the deal. The fifth Rubicon is time.”
He said it’s hard to predict how a film will end, explaining, “You have to entrust the entire process to the people who you hope will continue to work at the absolute peak of their ability.” One can only believe and have hope – and what is greater than faith and hope?”
