Tom Hanks likes to take risks with his movies
Hollywood star Tom Hanks said he thinks putting his faith in risky movie projects pays off. The 60-year-old Oscar winner has acted in more than 50 films since he made his breakthrough in 1984 comedy Splash.
And while he could easily call up filmmakers like Ron Howard and Steven Spielberg to create a movie together, he wants to work on projects that are less secure in terms of box office success – he just hopes his instincts pay off, reported Contactmusic.
“In order to create work as an artist, I look for something with danger, risk. That can take time to find. And when you do find it, you ask yourself: ‘Will anyone go see it if we make it?’
“Every time I make a movie, it’s a risk, and I fully appreciate and fear that... It’s this enjoyable, nauseous balance. Every time you make a movie, you have to convince everyone that it’s a great idea.”
