The 2006 Cannes Film Festival opened with the Da Vinci Code, based on the book of the same name by Dan Brown, starring Tom Hanks as the symbolist professor Robert Langdon, and won the audience's appreciation.

As of July 2020, the Player Tom Hanks wife actor Rita Wilson He became a citizen of Greece with. Prime Minister of Greece Kyriakos MitsotakisVisiting Tom Hanks and his wife Reta Wilson on the island of Antiparos in the Aegean, gave their double passports and citizenship documents.
64-year-old Tom Hanks and 63-year-old Rita Wilson wife in their summer residence on the island of Antiparos Mareva Kyriakos Kyriakos Mitsotakis, who visited with him, gave the citizenship documents with the passports of the famous star and his wife.
Hanks was born in Concord, California. As a child, Tom Hanks actually lived a middle-class life that lacked passion and talent. When he turned five zammoment family broke up. They remarried several times before their divorce. Later, his father married an Asian woman with a large family. Much later, Tom Hanks told Rolling Stone, "Everyone in my family loves each other." he said and added: “But every zamthere were almost fifty people at the time. I didn't feel exactly like a stranger, but somehow I was out of it. " Family divorced zamMoment, Hanks, his brother Larry and his sister, a traveling cook, traveled from city to city until they settled in Oakland with their father. Tom, they landed in California zammoment was 8 years old. Tom's younger brother remained with his mother.
Hanks was an insignificant person at school. “I was awkward,” he said to Rolling Stone and continued: “I was terribly and uncomfortably shy. Same zamfun during filmstrips at the moment zamI was the young man who could scream at moments. But no zamI didn't get into trouble at the moment. Each zamat the moment I was a really good kid and quite responsible. ” Although he played in several school plays (whose name he could not remember), acting was not a realistic prospect for Tom Hanks until he moved from Chabot College, San Francisco Bay Area college, to Sacramento State University. “Role-playing classes would seem like the best place for someone who likes to make noise and hangs cool,” Hanks told New York. said. “Going to the plays zamI spent the moment. He never takes the dates with me. I would go straight to the theater, buy myself a ticket, take my seat, check the schedule, and go right into the game. Seeing Bertolt Brecht, Tennessee Williams, Henrik Ibsen and others zamI had a moment. "
Hanks' encounter with Vincent Dowling, the head of the Great Lakes Theater Festival in Cleveland, happens during these role-playing classes. On Dowling's recommendation, Hanks Festival becomes an intern that encompasses a three-year experience that covers everything from lighting to set order and stage management. Such a decision required Tom Hanks to drop out of college. But at the end of these three years, Hanks decided he wanted to be an actor. Partly because of this desire is the Cleveland Critics Circle Award, in which Shakespeare won the best actor award for his performance in the role of Proteus (which is only one of the villains roles he played several times) in the Veronese Two Gentlemen games.
Hanks is the same actress in 1978 zamHe came to New York, where he married Samantha Lewes, who was the producer at the time. They divorced nine years later (when they had a daughter and a son), but Hanks still sees her children regularly. While in New York, Hanks played for the Riverside Shakespeare Company. In addition, he showed his first movie acting performance by starring in a low-budget (cheap) movie and starred in the television movie called Labyrinths and Monsters. He went on to take on various roles and eventually landed a role in ABC television in Bosom Buddies. Hanks flew to Los Angeles and then to California, where he met Peter Scolari, where they played a couple of young men who had to dress up as women in order to live in a cheap all-women hotel. The series lasted for two years and ratings were not zamTelevision critics gave the show high marks, even if it wasn't very good at the moment. “The first day I saw him on the set, I thought, 'Too bad, he won't be able to hold on to the screens for long,' said Ian Praise, co-producer of the show, to Rolling Stone. But I knew that two years later he would be a movie star, ”he said. Even if Praiser knew this, he couldn't persuade Hanks. "The TV show isn't going anywhere," his best friend Tom Lizzio told Rolling Stone. "Later, when this didn't get anywhere, Tom Hanks thought he would go back to pulling the strings at a theater and turning on the lights."
But what drove Ron Howard to contact Tom Hanks was his minor role in an episode of Bossom Buddies and the Happy Days series. Howard was working on the romantic comedy Splash at the time, which tells about a mermaid falling in love with man. At first, Howard thought of Tom Hanks for the relapse brother of the main character, who later played John Candy. But in contrast, Hanks got the lead and a career gained more than $ 69 million in revenue, gaining momentum with Splash, the number one in box-offices.
Progression to dramatic roles
Tom Hanks made his debut as a failed baseball coach in A League of Their Own (1992). He told Vanity Fair that this was his 'modern era of making movies'.
This 'modern era' welcomed the extraordinary 1993, first with Connections of Love and later with Philadelphia. Connected by Love was about the summer adventure of a widowed man who finds true love in the airwaves. ZamRichard Schcikel of the moment described his performance as "attractive" and agreed that his performance made him one of the leading romantic-comedy stars of his generation.
The real output of Tom Hanks is in Philadelphia. Hanks, who portrayed a gay lawyer with AIDS who sued his firm for discrimination, proved both talent and depth to be one of the best. (To make his performance in the movie more realistic, Hanks has weakened by about 16 pounds and thinned his hair to look sick.) In an interview with People, Lean Roze praised Hanks' ability: “Above all, Philadelphia's success is not a saint, but a saint. "Hanks knows he's playing the character, and his performance deserves Oscar."
Hanks' success with Philadelphia continued with Forrest Gump, which was a hit in the summer of 1994. Film, close yourself zamWho is a naive young man who finds himself in the midst of some of the most important events in American history? zamwho is the moment painful zamwhat is sweet is his story. In the film, the true wisdom of the character positively influences the lives in which it emerges. Robert Zemeckis, director of Forrest Gump at Vanity Fair, praised Tom Hanks' performance: “Hanks does what a real actor does, which is true honesty, in this role.”
In the same post, Hanks explains what he liked about the script: “I read Gump's script. zammoment, I saw that it was one of the big and hopeful movies that audiences could go and feel… some hopes for their fate and position in life… I got this a million times from movies I watched as a kid. Success with Forrest Gump not only boosted his place and reputation, it also zamat the time it won a second Academy Award. Tom Hanks is the second actress to win the Oscars twice in a row in the history of the Academy Awards, and no third star has ever achieved this feat. (Sprencer Tracy came first with awards in 1937 and 1938.)
Hanks' next work brought him together with director Ron Howard in the Apollo 13 movie, starring astronaut James Lovell. In 1970, Apollo 13 was heading towards the Moon when an oxygen tank exploded, and the space crew was almost unable to return to earth. Critics liked and applauded the overall performance of the film crew, including Kevin Bacon, Bill Paxton, Gary Sinise, Ed Harris, and Kathleen Quinlan, and the film in general.
1998 and after
Later, Hanks produced the documentary (From Earth to the Moon) as a producer (and assistant scriptwriter and assistant director). He chronicles a space program that ran from a 12-part series start, to his flight with Neil Armstrong and Jim Lovell, to personal emotions around the fact that he stepped on the moon. The Emmy-winning $ 68 million project was one of the most expensive productions for television. Undoubtedly, Tom Hanks' next project was no less expensive. Hanks met with Steven Spielberg to make a movie about the quest aimed at bringing him back home from France, which was divided by a military war. Saving Er Ryan earned the praise and praise of the film community, critics and the public. The film, which won Spielberg's second Best Director award and Tom Hanks nominated for Best Actor, has been recognized as one of the best war films ever made. In late 1998, Hanks starred in another romantic comedy with Meg Ryan, with whom he starred in the movie Love Tied. The duo appeared in The Message Around You, the remake of The Shop Around the Corner, shot in 1940, starring Jimmy Stewart and Margaret Sullavan.
Green Road / New Life
In 1999, he starred in the production of the same name as the movie, adapted from Stephen King's novel Green Road. The following year, he won an Academy Award nomination as well as a Golden Globe Best Actor for his character in the role of modern Robinson Crusoe, played in the New Life film directed by Robert Zemeckis. In 2001, he contributed to the production and production of the Band of Brothers television series.
Torment / Catch Me If You Can
Later, the director of the American Beauty film, Sam Mendes, and Max Allan Collins and Richard Piers Rayner met for the novel The Road of Torment, in which he played an escaping shooter with his son. In the same year, Hanks opposite Leonardo DiCaprio in the movie Catch Me If You Can Catch, based on the true story of Frank Abagnale, and worked with director Spielberg.
Women Hunters / Terminal / Polar Express
Until 2004, Hanks remained away from the films until Coen Brothers appeared in the Women Hunters, Terminal with which he worked with Steven Spielberg, and the Polar Express, with which he worked with Robert Zemeckis. On 12 June 2002, he won the Lifetime Achievement Award of the American Film Institute and became the first player to receive this award.
Hanks has been married to actress Rita Wilson since 1988. Although they first worked together on the production of Sincere Friends, they began to get closer while working on the movie Volunteers. Currently they have two children. Hanks was previously married to Lewes between 1978 and 1987.
Wilson is of Greek and Bulgarian origin and is a member of the Greek Orthodox Church. Hanks returned to his belief before marrying him. Hanks actively participates in the church.
Tom Hanks also had two children from this marriage, one of whom was his actor son, Colin Hanks. Hanks is also known to be a supporter of the Cleveland Indians baseball team and the Premier League teams, Aston Villa.
On December 27, 2019, Greek President Prokopis Pavlopoulos signed official documents, which are the official Greek citizens of Tom Hanks.
On March 12, 2020, he and his wife, Rita Wilson, announced that their tests were potent and that they caught the Coronavirus. Later, they passed the treatment process and got rid of this disease.
