The two-time Oscar winner is one of Hollywood's most recognizable faces right now. He continues to act in various films, write scripts and engage in production work.

 

Biography of Tom Hanks

 

1. Child of an international family

The baby was born on July 9, 1956, in a medical institution in the American town of Concord, which is located in California. Tom's parents were from two different countries - the UK and Portugal. Father (Amos Mefford Hanks) was an English restaurant worker who moved to the United States. The mother (Janet Marilyn) worked in one of the hospital's departments.

 

2. Divorce of parents

Tom's mom and dad broke up when he was five years old. The three older children (Sandra, Larry, and Tom) went to live with their father, while the youngest (Jim) stayed with their mother. The family often changed their residence; by age 10, Hanks managed to live in 10 different houses. This hurt student achievement. Also, the guy had to find new friends constantly.

 

3. Character

The future idol of millions suffered from shyness in childhood. He had few excellent acquaintances; he often spent time alone. The child rarely rioted and always obeyed adults. Already at a young age, he responsibly treated each assignment.

 

 

4. Favorite hobby

Hanks overcame shyness when he tried to prove himself at one of the school performances. A new hobby captivated the teenager. After graduating, he decides to enter the University of California, where he intensively studies drama and acting.

 

He received his first serious challenge when he was invited to become a member of the annual Shakespeare Festival. The future actor was engaged in stage design, helped with costumes, and installed spotlights. Tom quickly got bored with academic studies; he preferred to spend his free time more interestingly, touring with a small acting troupe.

 

5. Tom Hanks contracted the coronavirus

On March 12, 2020, it became known that actor Tom Hanks and his wife had contracted the coronavirus.

 

Hanks is now 63 and is at risk. The actor is now in Australia, receiving all the necessary medical care.

 

But the huge problem is that the couple was in contact with many people. Tom is with the crew of his new film, and Rita recently sang at the Emporium Hotel in Brisbane and the Sydney Opera House and participated in one of the Australian talk shows.

 

Tom Hanks career

 

6. Early work

The guy moved to New York in 1979 to try his hand at the big cinema. Previously, he managed to apply exclusively for episodic roles in TV shows. His debut work was a motion picture called "He knows how lonely you are," released exactly one year after the move.

 

The young man got his first serious success thanks to filming a romantic fantasy film about the love of a mermaid and a man, "Splash." Over the next few years, Hanks continued to appear in many films, but world recognition came to him only in the late eighties of the last century.

 

7. "Big" breakthrough

In 1988, the movie "Big" debuted in US cinemas. Hanks proved himself as a little boy who magically turned into an adult. Film critics praised Tom's efforts; he was nominated for an Oscar for the first time. Also in his collection appeared the first "Golden Globe."

 

8. Major works

During this period, many filmmakers became interested in the services of a star. He starred in the film "Turner and Hooch," where he played a police detective investigating crimes in tandem with his faithful dog. You can also note his work in the framework of the projects "Zest" and "Sleepless in Seattle."

 

 

9. Oscar-winning movies

 

"Philadelphia."

 

The legal drama Philadelphia, released in 1993, brought Hanks his first Oscar. As part of the film, the man played a truly provocative role. This work has become very atypical for the US in the early nineties because the screenwriters did not dare to make films about the problems associated with homophobia and the fight against AIDS.

 

Tom managed to appear before the audience as a young lawyer who faced blatant discrimination. The specialist was fired because of his sexual orientation and HIV-positive status. The lawyer is trying to defend his position in court to restore justice.

 

The film is based on actual events, and some elements of the plot are borrowed from the life story of the lawyer Jeffrey Bowers. Hanks prepared well for this role, especially for filming; he lost 11 kilograms.

 

"Forrest Gump."

 

The following year, the famous drama Forrest Gump, based on the novel of the same name, debuted on the big screens. As part of the plot, the story of the life of the protagonist Forrest, who suffers from mental retardation, is told. The guy gets into many difficult situations, but thanks to his determination and good nature, he gets out of them with dignity. The hero accomplishes a fantastic military feat and becomes a real hero. Hanks did an excellent job as Gump, for which he received his second Oscar in a row.

 

10. Great talent

Tom is known to the world because of several iconic acting works. He became famous as a film director, screenwriter, producer, and voice actor. For example, Hanks can be heard in the Toy Story animated series (he gave the voice to Sheriff Woody).

 

 

11. Other significant roles

Nearly every Hanks film that hit theaters in the late 1990s ended up with a cult following. The bright diamonds of the cinema were the works "Saving Private Ryan" and "The Green Mile." A special place is occupied by an adventure drama called "Outcast," when, in preparation for filming, a man dropped as much as 22 kilograms! Many movie lovers have been filled with a joint project by Hanks and DiCaprio called Catch Me If You Can.

 

Hanks also played a professor of religious symbology working at Harvard University. He played the role of specialist Robert Langdon in films based on several novels by author Dan Brown.

 

12. Awards and nominations

Hanks is one of the most titled actors of our time. He won almost all the cult awards of world cinema: Oscar (2 nominations and two wins), Golden Globe, Emmy, and US Screen Actors Award. According to the BAFTA, he also remained a step away from receiving a prize several times.

 

In 2016, Tom received the prestigious Medal of Freedom, presented to him by the current President of the United States, Barack Obama. In addition, Hanks is a Chevalier of the Order of the Legion of Honor of France.

Tom's first wife was her university classmate Samantha Lewis. The guy and the girl legalized their relationship in 1978. At this time, the firstborn of the newlyweds was already one year old (currently, Colin Hanks is an actor and producer). After some time, Tom and Samantha had a daughter, Elizabeth. This stage of life was not the most successful for the couple. They experienced some financial difficulties. The problem of lack of money often became the cause of frequent scandals.

 

In 1985, on the set, the man met Rita Wilson. Relations developed rapidly, but Hanks did not dare to break with his ex-wife for a long time. The divorce agreement was finalized in 1987. After a couple of months, the actor decided to marry a second time. The ceremony was held in the Greek style because Rita's ancestors were immigrants from Hellas. Tom also decided to become an Orthodox Christian. Soon the girl gave birth to her husband's two sons.

 

14. Political views

Hanks has always supported the policies of Barack Obama in his interviews and was a supporter of Hillary Clinton in the 2016 elections, criticizing Donald Trump. Tom has repeatedly advocated same-sex marriage legalization and publicly criticized the Mormon Church for its outdated views.

He recently announced the release of his first book, consisting of seventeen stories, each of which will be printed on a separate typewriter. The star had to write the collection in moments free from filming.

Films in which Hanks took part collected a total of $ 9 billion in revenue at the box office (the third highest figure in history). Starring in "Angels and Demons," the actor managed to earn about 51 million dollars.

45-interesting-facts-about-cameron-diaz

Cameron Diaz is one of the most famous actresses and models. The American blonde has become famous for her roles in many popular movies. Her real breakthrough was participation in the film "The Mask," an excellent creative tandem with Jim Carrey that was very successful.

 

Since that time, the best directors have become interested in the services of a promising start, the beauty's fees have increased several times, and many loyal fans began to follow her every step. Today we will tell you the most interesting facts about the actress's biography, career, and personal life.

 

Biography

 

1. The birth in the family of an emigrant

The baby was born on August 30, 1972, in the sunny town of San Diego, located in the southernmost part of the state of California (near the border with Mexico). The girl's father (Emilio Diaz) was born in the USA but had Cuban roots. It was from the pope "inherited" that Cameron received a Latin American surname.

 

In appearance, she is similar to her mother (Billy Diaz), whose parents were from Germany and the UK. The family lived in abundance, Emilio worked in a well-known oil company, and Billy was a sales agent.

 

2. Interesting character

Cameron was different from her peers. She spent a lot of time with her older sister Shimen, with whom she listened to rock music, wandered around the city with guys, and was also not afraid to use her fists in an argument. The girls maintained a good relationship with their mother. The family often attended Metallica and Ozzy Osbourne concerts.

 

3. California childhood

The town of Long Beach has become home to Diaz. A picturesque place on the Pacific coast is recognized as one of the world's largest ports; significant oil deposits and large American enterprises are based here. At Long Beach Polytechnic High School (where rapper Snoop Dogg studied with her), Cameron led an active social life; she regularly attended parties and various events.

 

4. Plans for a future career

Although the girl was not a model of a dynamic character and liked to drink alcohol in high school, her hobby was very calm. As a teenager, she spent much time with pets, caring for birds, cats, and dogs, and even dreamed of working as a zoologist.

 

5. Fateful party

An active social life allowed Diaz to become part of the modeling business. But it all started small; the beauty met a young photographer Jeff Dunas at one of the parties. His offer to participate in a trial photo shoot was not the usual way to meet a beautiful girl; the guy invited her to work in the Elite modeling agency. For the first couple of months, there was no talk of a severe career yet, but many well-known brands became interested in Cameron's services after a while.

 

Career

 

6. The first serious contracts

Although the beginning of Cameron's career had a semi-professional character, the rapid success forced her to concentrate entirely on the modeling business. At 17, she began to travel the world to participate in Calvin Klein and Levi's shows. The undoubted breakthrough was her appearance in 1990 on the main page of Seventeen. A couple of months later, the American went on her severe first business trip to Australia. In this country, she spent a couple of months where she starred in photo shoots for Coca-Cola.

 

7. Scandalous photoshoot

In 1992, the twenty-year-old beauty starred in an S&M underwear commercial. The photoshoot was intimate; the blonde flaunted topless in the frame. These pictures were never published in magazines. Harmless photos later played a cruel joke. A couple of years later (when Diaz had already become famous as an actress), photographer John Rutter offered Cameron to buy resonant videos and photographs for a couple of million dollars.

 

The woman considered such a statement blackmail and wanted to file an application against the extortionist in court. Still, it was impossible to hide the information completely; in 2005, scandalous materials surfaced on the Internet. As a result, Rutter was sent to prison for three years.

 

8. Trying to establish in a new field

The movie "The Mask," released in cinemas in 1994, allowed Cameron to become a national favorite. And it all started very spontaneously: the film's producers invited the beauty to come to the casting, as she fit perfectly into the concept of a pretty singer from the club. Thus, after a successful audition, the role in the comedy was given to a girl who had previously had nothing to do with the world of cinema.

 

The model began to actively attend acting classes, which turned out to be the right decision (her game was quite successful). This film became one of the highest grossing in 1994.

 

9. Next steps

As a result of the success of The Mask, Diaz decided to focus on acting. In just one year, she has been approved for the lead role in the following films: Feeling Minnesota, The Last Dinner, and How to Stay Afloat. Film critics highly appreciated the film "Best Friend's Wedding," considered one of the highest quality romantic comedies. The girl demonstrated her potential in work “Everything is crazy about Mary.” For this role, she was nominated for a Golden Globe film award.

 

10. Huge fee

The film adaptation of the famous series of the seventies of the twentieth century, "Charlie's Angels," brought considerable profits to the producers. Cameron played the role of a girl who, along with her partners, works in a private investigative agency. During filming, she earned about $20 million. Before her, only Julia Roberts was able to achieve such success.

 

11. Hostage of the image?

The movie star most often played mostly comedic or romantic roles, so many mistakenly consider her a performer of exclusively the same type of roles. The filmography of the actress is very diverse and multifaceted. She managed to star in several serious works.

 

Among them are "Gangs of New York" (where the girl appeared in the frame paired with DiCaprio), "Vanilla Sky," and "Being John Malkovich." These pictures are considered the most successful in a movie star's career because, thanks to these roles, the blonde was nominated for the Golden Globe every time. The excellent game of the American can also be seen in the film Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas.

 

Personal life

At the moment, it is known that the forty-five-year-old celebrity is expecting her first child.

 

14. Sex scandal

The National Enquirer published photos on its website in 2005 of Diaz (dating Timberlake) cuddling and flirting with her MTV show's married producer, Shane Nickerson.

Where to watch the latest and best family movies: on Netflix or Amazon Prime Video?

 

The growth of streaming services has continued rapidly over the past few years, with many platforms available offering all sorts of entertainment for all tastes.

 

However, two remain the most talked about: Netflix and Amazon Prime Video. They offer similar functionality: TV shows and movies are available to watch at your leisure. They offer 4K HDR content and offline viewing. This makes it difficult to choose between them.

 

Netflix has a handful of films with titles like The Irishman that make a big splash on the service. There are several Netflix exclusives, but outside of them, the movie selection tends to get old - it's back catalog stuff, not somewhere you go to watch the latest blockbusters. Since everything is part of a Netflix subscription, there is no natural way out of it.

 

Amazon has the upper hand here. Because it offers content to rent or buy, you can find newer stuff and pay for it. Some may not want to fork out the money. Still, if you're going to watch something in particular, Amazon will often have it available for some before Netflix does.

 

Amazon then tends to offer some movies as part of Prime, but that's the flip side of the dual approach - sometimes you see something you want to watch, and then you find out you have to buy it. Netflix never does this to you, so you will never feel disappointed.

 

 

Let's just say that choosing between Netflix and Amazon Prime Video is not an easy task. It will most likely come down to two things: price and preference.

 

You need to consider which type of movies and shows you enjoy the most and compare the results of each incredibly original and exclusive content. Top Gear fans, for example, will no doubt want to subscribe to Amazon's The Grand Tour service to watch the exploits of Jeremy Clarkson and his henchmen.

 

Comic book fans would prefer to choose Netflix due to the content partnership with Marvel Studios. However, there is now a move to DC with Disney + taking Marvel under its roof. Netflix is ​​probably the best single access to streaming content - with so many big shows running through the service, watching it is practically a must.

 

On the other hand, Amazon is a much larger platform - content to rent or buy, additional channels to subscribe to - Amazon offers a lot beyond streaming entertainment. Of course, the TV service is essentially free for those who pay for Amazon Prime.

 

Could you live with Amazon Prime instead of Netflix? Of course, you can - you will have a lot of entertainment. The question is, can you live without Netflix, which still dominates streaming communication.
