Tom Hanks decided to hop on Reddit and respond to a few random questions. This was not a typical AMA (ask me anything) on Reddit, in which celebrities respond to users' questions in a planned forum, which Tom did about a year ago. Rather, he just decided he would respond to questions that were posted in subreddits, where users discuss random questions about life, personal opinions, and their favorite books and films.
One we thing we now know is that Tom Hanks is not a fan of reality tv. He wishes for it to be the one thing that disappears in ten years.
Please: Reality TV.
He really, really does not like reality tv. So much so that he equates it as a "scam" casually accepted by the masses.
Again: Reality TV
Tom Hanks loves That Thing You Do, which he named as a movie that doesn't usually come up when discussing prominent actors' careers.
Look, I'd go back to That Thing You Do! -- as I think pound for pound it's as accurate a film as any I've been in.
He may write screenplays on something other than a computer, evidenced by a "luxury" item on his wish list for under $150:
A typewriter in good working order.
And proving once again that Tom Hanks is just a regular person like the rest of us, his favorite theme song from a tv show is from the first season of True Detective.
From the first season of True Detective: The Handsome Family. I can't get it out of my soul!
Tom Hanks has truly brightened several users' days by responding to their subreddits. Just more fun from a guy who also makes appearances in pop music videos. This is most impressive for a guy that prefers typewriters and his own earlier works from the mid-nineties.
