Tom Hanks terrified critics will halt his careerMay 13th, 2009 - 12:57 am ICT by IANS
London, May 12 (IANS) Oscar-winning actor Tom Hanks is terrified his acting career will come to a screeching halt someday as critics are constantly reviewing his old films.
Despite the 52-year-old’s track record with box office totals in his native US alone exceeding $3.3 billion, Hanks is convinced his success could unravel at any minute courtesy the movie critics, reports contactmusic.com.
“(Each film) lasts forever that’s the thing…Years from now, three, four, five years, everybody’s film is re-calibrated. (Critics ask) if it’s worthwhile or not, whether moments are proper or authentic or if it really has some purpose in some human zeitgeist…so every day, no matter where you are in the world, it’s petrifying when you think about that.
“I’m walking that tightrope,” Hanks said.
