Movies are like a box of chocolates — you never know what you’re gonna get.
Tom Hanks might be one of America’s favorite leading men, but the two-time Oscar winner and four-time nominee only thinks a handful of his films are up to snuff.
“No one knows how a movie is made — though everyone thinks they do,” the “Saving Private Ryan” and “Forrest Gump” star, 66, told People in an interview out Tuesday. “I’ve made a ton 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 didn’t name which films he had in mind.
Among his beloved works that have been up for a best picture Academy Award are “Apollo 13,” “The Green Mile,” and “Forrest Gump,” which won.
He’s also starred in five of Oscar-winning director Steven Spielberg’s films, starting with best picture nominee “Saving Private Ryan” in 1998 all the way through fellow best picture nom “The Post” in 2017.
