What’s your favorite Tom Hanks movie or character, and why?
My favorite Tom Hanks movie or character is... obviously Forrest Gump. That movie is one of my all-time favorites. Just the irony of him being at all of these historical events is funny. Also, it really shows that the simplest of people really have a sense of... contentment? about the world. I mean, Forrest even says that he is not a smart man... however he is happy. HAPPY. How many people can actually say that they are happy? And that is what I love about his character. He takes what is given to him. And he is happy. He may not understand or know what to do all the time... but is that really the point of life? No... Accepting the world and being happy is all that matters. No one can change the world. No one can stop war or hunger or anything. The important thing is to find your Jenny, never let her go, and live your life. And you will be HAPPY. Like Forrest.
