Tom Hanks Reveals He Paid For Parts Of ‘Forrest Gump’ Himself
Tom Hanks dug into his own pocket to help “Forrest Gump” get made. Appearing in an interview on “In Depth with Graham Bensinger”, the actor talked about the challenges faced while shooting the 1994 Oscar-winner. RELATED: Canadian Typewriter Repairman Is Surprised With A Heartfelt Letter From Tom Hanks The actor recalled one scene in the film, which Paramount had said was too expensive to film, and when director Robert Zemeckis couldn't convince them otherwise, Hanks offered to help. "And he said, 'Well, this run is going to cost X amount of dollars.' And it wasn't cheap. And I said, 'OK'.
"Ladies and gentleman, my name is Jefferson Kyle Kidd and I’m here tonight to read the news from across this great world of ours," he says.
As he decides to take in Johanna and return her to her family, Kidd protects her from outlaws and dangers after explaining why he's chosen to take this journey.
"She needs to laugh and dream. She needs new memories," he says.
According to, Hanks' character's goal in the film is to "bring people together and expand their perspective of the world" through his one-man show about true stories from around the world.
"When the fabric of society is in tatters, you’ve got a character in Kidd, who in his lonely, singular, small way is a thread who connects one community to another,” director Greengrass told the publication.
He adds of the film, which takes place in 1870: "Even though it’s set then, it’s a film about our times."
"Neighbors and families and communities were in stark and often violent conflict with each other, and Americans needed to decide who they were as Americans."
