About Colin Hanks
As for the day, Colin Hanks net worth amount to $15 million dollars. Even though this kind of fortune would allow him to engage in the costliest sports or travel around the world 24/7, this type of entertainment is not for Colin. In one of his interviews the actor, who is currently 35, has said: “Normally, what I do for fun is just nothing. I try to just relax. Normally, it involves just relaxing and reading and maybe going out and meeting up with a friend. I live a very simple existence. I would much rather just sit around and listen to a couple of records and read the paper“.
Anyway, Colin does not have much time for relaxation as he is an in-demand actor. Of course, he is not as popular yet as his father, Tom Hanks. As you might know, with two Academy Awards and 5 nominations, one BAFTA Award, four Golden Globe Awards, fife Emmy Awards, 2 SAG awards and 38 wins in total Tom is one of the most acclaimed actors in the world. Hence, it is not surprising that his fortune is much more impressive than Colin Hanks net worth – the father has some $350 million in his disposal. He earned this money appearing in films like Big, Philadelphia, Forrest Gump, Apollo 13, Saving Private Ryan, The Green Mile, The Da Vinci Code and Saving Mr. Banks.
