Tom Hanks’ films have grossed more than $8 billion worldwide. He’s won multiple Oscars, Golden Globes and Emmys. Now, another accolade: he’s one of five performers named as a 2014 Kennedy Center honoree, reports “CBS This Morning” co-host Gayle King.
Hanks was born in 1956 in Concord, California. After his parents divorced when he was 4 years old, he spent his childhood moving from one town to another as his mother and father each remarried several times.
He took to acting on the stages of Sacramento and at the Great Lakes Theater Festival in Ohio. But we first came to know Hanks in 1980, on a sitcom about cross-dressing roommates called “Bosom Buddies.”
He said after “Bosom Buddies,” one thing led to another, which led to another.
“Without a doubt; It was the greatest thing that had ever happened to me,” he said.
