Who is Truman Theodore Hanks?
Truman Theodore Hanks was born in Los Angeles, California USA, on 26 December 1995 – his zodiac sign is Capricorn and he holds American nationality. He is probably only known for being the son of the famous American actor Tom Hanks, and his second wife Rita Wilson, an American actress and singer-songwriter.
Early life and education
Truman was raised in Los Angeles alongside his older brother Chester Marion ‘Chet’ Hanks, his half-brother Colin Hanks and half-sister Elizabeth Hanks from his father’s first marriage to Samantha Lewes. As both his parents are actors, Truman became interested in acting at quite an early age, but soon learned he didn’t have the talent to succeed in that profession.
He is quite secretive when it comes to his personal matters, and not a lot is known about his early life.
He attended a local high school at which he played ice hockey and soccer, and matriculated in 2013. Truman hasn’t talked about his further education, but it’s believed that he enrolled at Stanford University from which he graduated with a Bachelor’s degree in 2017.
Truman has worked in the camera and electrical department of one TV series and four movies. In 2019, he contributed to 12 episodes of the thriller crime series “Babylon Berlin”, and then worked on the action adventure film “News of the World” – which starred his father – and the action thriller “Wrath of Man”. He is currently working on the action adventure science fiction film “Black Widow”, and the musical crime drama “West Side Story”.
He has a single acting credit, having appeared as German Rider in “News of the World”.
He was a production assistant on the 2018 action science fiction horror movie “The Cloverfield Paradox”, and on the 2019 adventure comedy action film “Charlie’s Angels”. He also served as a cinematographer for the 2019 short comedy “The Ice Queen Society”.
Love life and relationships
Truman is quite secretive when it comes to his love life, and hasn’t mentioned any girls (or boys) he might have dated.
It’s believed that he was quite popular at school thanks to being the son of famous actors, and that he has dated several girls as a couple of his father’s fans have claimed to have seen Truman walking hand in hand with different girls over the course of five years. Truman hasn’t commented on any of the rumors, so nothing about his love life or sexual orientation is known.
As of January 2021, he appears to be single, hasn’t married and doesn’t have children.
Hobbies and other interests
Truman goes to the gym several times each week, and is also involved in various sports. He likes to ski, snowboard, as well as swim in the ocean during summer. Truman also enjoys watching sports on TV – his favorite ice hockey team is the Los Angeles Kings, while his two favorite soccer teams are the Greek Panathinaikos, and English Liverpool.
He is keen on travelling and has kept his father company during many of his red carpet events, while he has also travelled alone to various US states, as well as a couple of European countries.
Truman is a dog-lover and has a pet dog.
He has his own favorite actors and actresses, some of whom are Matt Damon, Natalie Portman and Emma Watson, while a couple of his favorite movies are “Good Will Hunting”, “V for Vendetta”, and “The Art of Getting By”.
