0 5

Although he has starred in at least 85 films during his stellar career, Tom Hanks considers only four of those films to be “fairly good.”

The two-time Oscar winner, 66, is considered one of Hollywood’s greatest actors, but insists that only a handful of films he’s made in the past 30 years are really good.

The actor put on the unveiling People while promoting his debut novel “The Making of Another Major Motion Picture Masterpiece,” which is due out in May 2023.

“No one knows how a movie is made, although everyone thinks they do,” he told the outlet.

“I’ve made a lot of movies, and four of them are pretty good I think, and I’m still amazed at how movies come together. From a flicker of an idea to the flickering image on the screen, the whole process is a miracle.”

Hanks did not reveal which of the four films he was referring to.

Tom Hanks starred as “Forrest Gump” in the movie of the same namesake in 1994.

The actor first appeared on the scene in the 1980s, when he landed roles in ‘Splash!’, ‘The ‘Burbs’ and ‘Big’ – for which he received an Oscar nomination.

But his life changed forever after he won his first Academy Award for ‘Philadelphia’ in 1994. The following year, he took home another Oscar for his role in “Forrest Gump.”

Most recently, Hanks was featured in Baz Lurhmann’s “Elvis” alongside Austin Butler.
