One of the scenes that Tom backed, along with filmmaker Robert Zemeckis, was the run across America.

Hanks, who was the protagonist in the 1994 film, said that he and Robert came together as "soulmates" to make the scene happen.

"Forrest Gump" is an iconic movie with Tom Hanks as the main character, whose will and determination helps him, a handicapped and slow-witted man, run a marathon throughout the United States, expose the Watergate scandal, meet with JFK and fight in the USA army. "And I said 'ok, '" he shared on In Depth with Graham Bensinger. "What have I done wrong?' And they would say, 'Well, what do you think you've done wrong?' 'Why am I so unhappy?' 'Well, tell me about your unhappiness".

"Bob said, 'Look, I know what you are trying to do. I don't. You're right.' And he just said, 'Don't try so hard.' And from that, everything settled down in a moment's notice", the actor admitted. I shall open up the reductions and chat about each facet of the post creation of the with you personally if you are my collaborator instead of only my worker.

He explained, "And (Zemeckis) said, 'Well, this run is going to cost X amount of dollars.' And it wasn't cheap". I said "Okay you and I are going to split that amount and we're gonna give it back".

"To what the studio said, "Fabulous, good, fine, it is very good for us also.' It occurred, they said'We cannot receive the insurance you cannot take" and Bob and I said, "Ok we will pay the insurance", and we all did. So it ended up being very easy after that".

This film' could not have been more ideal and productive for Tom Hanks who won about USA $ 65 million when the film became a hit - it estimated $ 677 million worldwide - and who also won several awards from The Academy.

He also went on to win Best Actor at the Oscars for his performance.
