Tom Hanks is one of the highest paid actors and leading men in Hollywood for a reason. After all, almost every movie in which the American is involved as a producer or actor becomes a resounding success. The films in which Tom Hanks was involved up to December 2013 were able to bring in 7.78 billion euros. The horrendous fees for Tom Hanks are definitely worthwhile for the film studios as well. When it comes to the stars who consistently make the box office ring the most, Hanks is the undisputed number 1. Brad Pitt and George Clooney just can’t hold a candle to their colleague either. The estimated fortune of 360 million euros is therefore not surprising.

Curious details about Tom Hank’s successes

Even if you take a closer look at the other facts about Tom Hank’s box office hits, an interesting picture emerges. Because in some of the films that have brought in the most money for the film studios, Tom hasn’t even been seen on the big screen himself. In fact, he’s become the voice for funny cartoon characters on some of these projects. In English-speaking countries, Tom Hanks lends his voice to the cute Woody in Toy Story. With Toy Story 1 to 3, the actor was able to celebrate some of his biggest film hits. These three films alone have grossed 1.78 billion euros worldwide . In Toy Story 4, the English-speaking audience can once again look forward to Tom Hanks as the voice of Woody.

While his film colleagues earn huge sums from advertising campaigns, Tom Hanks made a conscious decision not to do so. He will therefore not be seen in the TV commercials of brands like Nespresso in the future either, as George Clooney, for example, likes to do. For the marketing professionals of many large companies, this is a bitter loss. Because a poll has shown that Tom Hanks is the most trusted of all Hollywood actors in the eyes of consumers. He would probably lose that title if he sold his name for money. But that’s not exactly what the A-lister does. The superstar is not dependent on the income from possible advertising campaigns anyway.

Interesting facts about the actor’s net worth

In the USA alone, Tom Hank’s home country, the actor’s films were able to bring in the equivalent of 4.13 billion euros. The A-lister himself was also able to benefit from this and thus accumulate a fortune of 350 million US dollars. For example, Hanks is said to have received a fee of 18 million US dollars for “The Da Vinci Code” from 2006 , which corresponds to the equivalent of 16.9 million euros. He was even better rewarded for Angels & Demons in 2009. The Hollywood Leading Man was sold for $50 million.

Together with his wife Rita Wilson , Tom Hanks owns several houses , which are mainly located in the US state of California. One of his houses is said to be worth a whopping 24 million euros. Living there with four bedrooms and five bathrooms is definitely very good. Incidentally, Tom Hanks didn’t even need a college degree to afford this luxury. Because he never completed his studies at California State University in Sacramento, the capital of the state of California. However, luck seemed to be on the College Dropout’s side. In addition, the Hanks have a holiday home on the Greek island of Antiparos, where they regularly spend summer holidays. Matching, a beautiful luxury yacht .
