In Hollywood, celebrity couples often don’t even make it past the 10-year mark. But Rita and Tom will celebrate their 30th wedding anniversary this year, which is a great milestone to reach.


Of course, growing up in the shadow of famous parents might not be easy. But Colin, Elizabeth, Chester, and Truman Hanks still found a way to make names for themselves.

So what do we know about Tom’s children?

Colin Hanks

The 40-year-old is the spitting image of his famous dad! He followed Tom’s example by pursuing acting career. Colin appeared in teen comedies, such as Orange County and Get Over It. And he also got roles in popular TV series, including Fargo and Dexter.


Elizabeth Hanks

If you are a fan of Forrest Gump, you probably remember a particularly mean girl on the school bus. This unfriendly kid is Tom’s second child Elizabeth. Now, the 35-year-old is an important figure in the world of publishing, having worked for Vanity Fair and HuffPost.

Chester Hanks

This kid has caused much controversy over the last years. Although Chet is an aspiring singer and actor, he also had a lot of troubles going on around him.

Due to his cocaine addiction and alcohol abuse, Tom’s 3rd child even went to a rehab. Now, he tries to be a better man, and his family totally supports him.

Truman Hanks

We don’t know much about the 22-year-old. But what we do know is that he studies at Stanford University and works at Bad Robot, the production company.

What about grandchildren?

Apart from being prominent actors, Tom and Rita are also cool grandparents. The couple has 3 granddaughters (Colin’s and Chet’s girls).


And Hanks absolutely enjoys spending time with them, portraying funny monsters or playing chase.
