He has a Sixth Sense ... for being arrested!

by Tyler Johnson 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:

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.

When Haley Joel Osment was arrested for drunk driving earlier this month, it was an embarrassing affair for the child actor.

Or was it an opportinity for free head shots? As the mug shot of The Sixth Sense star proves, celebrities are posing more and more for police cameras these days:

Of course, Osment is missing the smugness of Mel Gibson after his arrest. And the outright fright of Nick Nolte following his capture.

But give the kid some time. He's young.

Oh, Haley. It looks like the star of the Sixth Sense has been praying to his Mel Gibson poster a bit too much recently.

The 18-year old actor has been charged with three misdemeanors, including driving under the influence, stemming from an incident last month.

Osment was also charged with driving while having a .08 percent or higher blood alcohol content with the special allegation of having a .15 percent or higher blood alcohol content, and possession of marijuana while driving, according to Deputy District Attorney Ed Green.

Linsday Lohan would be so proud of the latter.

In July, the actor crashed his 1995 Saturn around 1 a.m. near Los Angeles. He lost control of his car, hit a mailbox on a brick base and flipped over. Osment broke a rib and hurt his shoulder in the accident, but was expected to make a full recovery.

The actor is scheduled to be arraigned on Sept. 19. Now, we're no conspiracy theorists - but M. Night Shyamalan directed both Osment and Gibson. Could the mysterious writer have infilitrated the minds of his stars and is now plotting his next movie?
We doubt it, really.
