Is there anything Tom Hanks can’t do? Hanks is a successful actor, producer, writer, and oh, did we mention he has a beautiful family too. If we were the jealous type…okay maybe we are the jealous type. But seriously, Tom Hanks seems to have it all.

Over the years, the 62-year-old actor has worked his way up the ranks in Hollywood. Now he is one of the most respected and highest earning actors in Hollywood. But just how much does this megastar earn? What is his net worth? Let’s take a look.

Tom Hanks got his start in horror

It’s hard to believe that Hanks got his start in show business nearly 40 years ago. Hanks’ first role was as Elliot in He Knows You’re Alone. That same year, the California native landed a role on the popular show Bosom Buddies.

Since then, the actor has kept himself busy. According to IMDB, Hanks has had appeared in a film or TV show every year since 1980 except for 1991 and 2018. But to his credit, Hanks did produce two TV documentaries and one movie in 2018. The actor has 89 acting credits to his name, 57 producer credits, 8 directing credits, and 7 writing credits. He has been nominated for over 100 different awards winning a total of 84.

He married the love of his life in 1988

In Hollywood, Tom Hanks and Rita Wilson are the gold standard. They are the couple you want to be. Hanks and Wilson first met on the set of Bosom Buddies, but Hanks was married to someone else at the time.

The two met again in 1985 and this time they knew they were meant to be. In 1986 Hanks and Wilson began dating. His divorce from Samantha Lewes was finalized in 1987 and he was married to Wilson in 1988.

Hanks says his relationship with his wife is what drives him and makes him a better actor. In 2001 he told Oprah Winfrey, “I view my wife as my lover, and we have a bond that goes beyond words like wife or girlfriend or mother,” he continued, “For example, I was able to construct a number of things in Philadelphia because of my relationship with Rita. The way my character felt about his lover is the way I feel about mine. The same was true when I played Forrest Gump, who loved Jenny. Without my connection with Rita, I don’t know how I would’ve been able to connect with what Forrest was going through.”

The actor has continued to garner critical and audience praise for his work

Hanks has an impressive body of work. The Big star has won two Oscars, one for his role in Forrest Gump and one for Philadelphia. Hanks was nominated three other times. He has also won six Primetime Emmys.
