Hollywood star Tom Hanks has acted in almost 100 films, but only finds four of them “pretty good”.
“No one knows how a movie is made – although everyone thinks they do,” Hanks said in a new interview with People, reports Variety.
“I’ve done a lot of films (and four of them are pretty good I think) and I’m still amazed at how films come together in a miracle.”
Hanks has directed some of cinema’s most celebrated films over his four-decade career, including “Forest Gump” and “Philadelphia,” both of which earned him Academy Awards for Best Actor.
Hanks was also nominated for an Academy Award for Cast Away, Big, Saving Private Ryan and A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood (2020).
But it’s unclear which titles in Hanks’ filmography he thinks are the best.
“Making films is very hard work over a very long period of time, made up of so many moments of joy met with an equal number of feelings of self-loathing,” he said. “It’s the greatest job in the world and the most confusing job I know.”
Hanks, who starred in this year’s box office hit Elvis and Disney’s live-action remake Pinocchio, is gearing up for the release of his first novel, The Making of Another Major Motion Picture Masterpiece, out May 9 May 2023 will be released.
