Forrest Gump Cast: Where Are They Now?

by at .  Updated at . Comments

July marks the 20th anniversary of the release of Forrest Gump. The Tom Hanks film that's come to be regarded as a modern classic was one of the biggest box office smashes of the 1990s and went on to win six Academy Awards, including Best Picture.

Catchphrases such as, "Stupid is as stupid does," and, "Life is like a box of chocolates," are among the most oft-quoted lines in the history of cinema.

While A-listers such as Tom Hanks and Sally Field remain very much in the public eye, we figured this milestone anniversary of the beloved film would be a good time to check in on what all of the principal players have been up to in the two decades since Forrest Gump first hit theaters:

Tom Hanks
Hanks has gone on to maintain his title as one of the most beloved and bankable stars in Hollywood. He's now racked up an astonishing 5 Oscar nominations with 2 wins.

Some of the film's marquee names have gone on to reign supreme amongst critics and audiences alike (both Hanks and Fields have Oscars in the years since), while others quickly faded into obscurity (Remember Haley Joel Osment?)

But whatever turns their careers took in the years that followed, we're sure all the cast crew of Gump regard the film as the most pleasant unexpected surprise of their careers. A cherry cordial amidst almond nougats, if you will.
