Biography for Tom Hanks


Birth name


Thomas Jeffrey Hanks




6' 1" (1.85 m)


Mini biography


Born in California, Tom Hanks grew up in what he calls a 'fractured'

family. His parents were pioneers in the development of marriage

dissolution law in that state, and Tom moved around a lot, living with a

succession of step-families. No problems, no abuse, no alcoholism, just

a confused childhood. He had no acting experience in college, and in

fact credits the fact that he couldn't get cast in a college play with

actually starting his career - he went downtown, auditioned for a

community theater play, was invited by the director of that play to go

to Cleveland, and there his acting career started. He met his second

wife, actress HYPERLINK "" Rita Wilson

on the set of the movie HYPERLINK ""

Volunteers (1985) - they have two children and Tom has another son and

daughter by his first wife. In 1996 he made his first step behind the

camera, directing as well as starring and writing the film HYPERLINK

"" That Thing You Do! (1996).
