TOM HANKS: ELIZABETH ANN HANKS
We’re used to seeing celebrity kids entering the limelight to follow their parents’ career paths. However, for some, it isn’t always the exciting path to take. Elizabeth Ann Hanks, one of the two children of industry legend Tom Hanks and his former wife Samantha, decided that the glitz and glamour wasn’t the path for her. After starring in popular films That Thing You Do!, Anchorage, and Forrest Gump, she decided to save her investment money, retire from the entertainment industry, and pursue her career as a writer. Today, she continues to live a quiet and happy life with her husband in Los Angeles.
Today, Tom remains one of Hollywood’s brightest stars with a $400-million net worth. He was recently honored with the Golden Globe Cecil B. DeMille Award and Presidential Medal of Freedom. Tom is also set to appear in the American remake of the comedy-drama film A Man Called Ove.
