Tom Hanks doesn't care about money

Sep 30 2013, 6:06am CDT | by Bang Showbiz

Tom Hanks isn't driven by money.

The Oscar-winning actor regularly commands multi-million dollar pay days for his movies, but he insists he would be just as happy making small sums like he did when he was a young upstart in Hollywood.

He explained: "My attitude to money? On a 1980 TV series called 'Bosom Buddies' I made $5,000 (£3,000) a week. If I had made that kind of money for the rest of my life I would have been happy, honestly. But I have been getting ludicrous sums of money for quite some time.

"The best part is not owing money to anyone. Money, though, has never been my driving force. You can live in the biggest and best house in the world but it can be s***t if you are unhappy."

The 57-year-old screen legend has earned critical acclaim for movies such as 'Forrest Gump', but he admits that he isn't worried when one of his films flops because it keeps him grounded.

He added to The Sun newspaper: "I have been lucky in my career simply because I made bad decisions, and learned good lessons, out of the public eye. I made the 1984 film 'Splash' and that was successful. Then I was in movies which flopped. No one was paying me any attention. But had it all happened for me overnight, I would have suffered problems. When fame finally came, I was as ready as you can ever be.

"I will always be known as Forrest Gump to some, but so what?"

Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Swim 2015 Official Coverage - Day 3
It was only a few months ago that analysts had, foolishly it would seem, branded Disney's live-action adventure 'Maleficent' as a flop, and that was even before it had been released in cinemas. However, after a strong opening and consistent debut week and beyond, the stattos were left scratching their heads at the impressive $697 million it has made to date, from a $180 million budget. But what's more impressive is that ...

Floyd Mayweather Has a Love Misunderstood

Floyd Mayweather Jr. v Marcos Maidana - Press Tour
Floyd Mayweather said he is actually friends with Justin Bieber and not just pretending to like Justin Bieber like the rest of the people who like Justin Bieber. Mayweather was offended when it was suggested otherwise, as if him and Biebs used to hustle in the same crew back in the D in the late 80′s: “To me, that’s kind of racial profiling” Clearly Mayweather does not understand what that term means. Being questio ...

Reese Witherspoon in the first trailer for “Wild”: awesome or disappointing?

Q Live In Portland Show
Cheryl Strayed’s bestselling memoir Wild: From Lost to Found on the Pacific Crest Trail was one of my favorite reads last year. I loved the unassuming way that Strayed told the story of how she hiked 1,000 miles following her divorce and the loss of her mother. Strayed never seemed like she was bragging or exaggerating, just like she was explaining how she overcame a very difficult transitional period by challenging herself. I came away admiring Strayed and f ...
