Wright was nominated for both a Screen Actors Guild Award and a Golden Globe for her role as Jenny in 1994’s beloved Forrest Gump.
In many of Tom Hanks’ running sequences, his younger brother Jim Hanks is said to have doubled for him. This is surprising because they don’t necessarily look alike.
During the Vietnam rally that was held in Washington, Tom Hanks’ microphone was not audible. These are the exact words he said: “Sometimes when people go to Vietnam, they go home to their mommas without any legs. Sometimes they don’t go home at all. That’s a bad thing. That’s all I have to say about that.”
Tom Hanks ad-libbed the line “My name is Forrest Gump. People call me Forrest Gump,” and it turned out to be a line used in the film. It stayed in the final cut of the film because the film’s director, Robert Zemeckis, loved it so much that he allowed it to be used.
Haley Joel Osment, who famously acted in The Sixth Sense, acted as Forrest and Jenny’s son. He acted amazingly and most people who watched the movie liked him. The most amazing and surprising thing is that this was his first film performance yet he aced it.
