Top ten movies of famous Hollywood actor: Tom Hanks

Famous Hollywood actor Tom Hanks

He was born Thomas Jeffrey Hanks on July 9, 2956 in Concord, California (USA). Best known as simply, Tom Hanks, he is one of the best-known movie actors in the world. In addition to his many unforgettable movie roles, Tom also produces, directs, writes and does voice-overs. He made his debut in film with a splash. Actually he made it in movie entitled, Splash. The 1984 Ron Howard film about a man in love with a mermaid was a hit and got Tom’s name notice in Tinsel-town. After a few less-than-memorable follow-ups, he had another hit, this one entitled Big, in1988. Through the late ‘80s and early ‘90s, Tom had a string of comedic films, but didn’t land a major dramatic role until 1992’s A League of Their Own. His 1993 portrayal as a homosexual male in the movie, Philadelphia, won Tom his first Oscar. From that point on, he seemed destined to succeed and few films with the name Tom Hanks in the credits turn out to be total losses, either at the box office or with the public.

Tom’s work in films such as Forrest Gump, Apollo 13, Saving Private Ryan and more cemented his status as a top Hollywood star. Critics applauded his performances and audiences got deeper glimpses into the man’s genius. He has few who dare to criticize his work any more, except perhaps, for himself.

  • 2002 American Film Institute’s AFI Lifetime Achievement Award, 2002 Hollywood Film Festival Actor of the Year
  • 2004 BAFTA/LA Britannia Award for Excellence in Film
