Tom Hanks Reflects On His Son

When it comes to Tom Hanks and his son Truman, there’s a lot of love in the air. That’s because the actor is working with his son on A Man Called Ove, a documentary about a man named Otto Warmbier from Wyoming who was killed after being imprisoned in North Korea.

Tom Hanks is an actor and Truman Hanks is his son. Tom has also excelled in directing films like The Post and Saving Private Ryan, but he’s not the only one with a career in Hollywood to be passing along his skills to the next generation.

Tom Hanks Shares A Father-Son Moment

In fact, there are several celebrity parents who have children who’ve followed them into the entertainment industry. Here are some of their stories:

  • Justin Theroux’s daughter with Jennifer Aniston—Maeve—is following in her father’s footsteps as an actor on HBO’s upcoming show Sunset Stories (though she recently revealed that she would “love” to act opposite her mom on Friends.)
  • Mila Kunis’ daughter Wyatt was named after her grandfather Howard Stern; she has expressed interest in following him into radio when she grows up…but for now, she wants to focus on college!

    Tom Hanks recently told PEOPLE about the film, Tom Hanks: A Man Called Ove. The film is about a man named Otto Warmbier from Wyoming whose life was cut short in North Korea and will air on the History Channel next month.

    “I didn’t know what my job was going to be until we started shooting,” Truman said of working with his dad on this project. “I just wanted someone who would give me really good direction.”

    “The thing I realized when he got there is that I had changed his diapers,” Hanks added of Truman’s early years as an actor. “It was pretty special.”

    “I changed his diapers,” he quipped.

    A film about a man who was born in the U.S., moved to Germany as a young adult, and became an SS officer during World War II titled Man Called Ove was released in 2016. The film was adapted from Fredrik Backman’s book of the same name, which won fiction awards in Sweden and Norway.

    Hanks plays Ove—the curmudgeonly anti-hero of this story—in the movie adaptation directed by Hannes Holm (Kon-Tiki). The actor said that his son Truman played baby Ove in flashbacks during filming, so they were able to reenact scenes together after all these years.
