In 1994, Tom Hanks won his first consecutive Academy Awards for his performance in Philadelphia, in which he plays a gay man seeking justice after his employer wrongly terminates him due to his HIV infection. The actor explained in an interview with New York Times Magazine Friday posted that he understood why he couldn’t play that role today.

“Can a straight man do what I did Philadelphia Currently? “No, and rightfully so,” Hanks said. The bottom line of Philadelphia do not worry. One of the reasons people aren’t afraid of this movie is that I was playing a gay guy. We’re over that now, and I don’t think people will accept the falsity of a straight guy playing a gay guy. It’s not a crime, and it’s not boho, for someone to say we’re going to demand more of a movie in the modern world of authenticity. Do I look like I’m preaching? I do not mean that “.

Hanks, who is promoting his latest project, Baz Luhrmanns Elvis, in which he plays the famous singer’s manager, Tom Parker, is remembered for some of his other memorable roles as well. One was by Professor Robert Langdon, who portrayed him in three films based on the bestselling books by author Dan Brown: The Da Vinci CodeAnd the Angels and Demons And the big fire. He called the next two series “Business Enterprise” and they are both “Fun”.

However, he shared an amusing memory that he made for the first time.

Hanks, 65, said, “It was my 40th birthday, we were filming at the Louvre at night. I changed my pants in front of the Mona Lisa! They brought me a birthday cake at the Grand Salon! Who? Gets that experience?”

As for his personal life, Hanks explained why he is inactive Twitter Since May 2020.

“I stopped posting because I thought at first it was an empty exercise. I have enough interest in me,” he said. “But I’d also post something goofy like, ‘That’s a pair of shoes I saw in the middle of the street,’ and the third comment would be, ‘”[Expletive] You, Hanks. I don’t know if I want to give this guy a forum. If the third comment is[Expletive] You, Obama-loving communist, “It’s like, you don’t need to do that.”
