Hollywood star Tom Hanks has acted in nearly 100 movies but thinks only four of them are "pretty good"."No one knows how a movie is made though everyone thinks they do," Hanks said in a new interview with 'People', reports 'Variety'.
"I've made a tonne of movies (and four of them are pretty good, I think), and I'm still amazed at how films come together. From a flicker of an idea to the flickering image onscreen, the whole process is a miracle."
Hanks has led some of cinema's most celebrated films over his four-decade career, including 'Forest Gump' and 'Philadelphia', both of which earned him the Academy Award for best actor.Hanks was also Oscar-nominated for 'Cast Away', 'Big', 'Saving Private Ryan' and 2020's 'A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood'.
But it's unclear which titles in Hanks' filmography he considers to be the best."Movie-making is very hard work over a very long period of time that consists of so many moments of joy slapped up against an equal number of feelings of self-loathing," he said.
"It is the greatest job in the world and the most confounding of labours that I know of."Hanks, who starred in box office smash 'Elvis' and Disney's live-action 'Pinocchio' remake this year, is gearing up to release his first novel, titled 'The Making of Another Major Motion Picture Masterpiece', out May 9, 2023.
