Los Angeles, May 3 (IANS) Actor Tom Hanks thinks he has the “greatest gig in the world” because he loves acting and is in a position to pick and choose the roles he wants.
The Oscar-winning actor’s considers himself in a “fabulous” place and unlike some people with “twisted” motives, he says that he only got into the movie-making business because he wanted to have fun, reports femalefirst.co.uk.
“I’m at a fabulous place. I really have to be intrigued by a part. It is like saying, ‘I’m going to give up, go off, form my repertory company in Cleveland, Ohio, and do plays I’d like to be in.’ It’s not unlike that and it’s nice,” Hanks told Sunday Times Culture magazine.
“Some people are in show business for twisted reasons. Power. They want to get laid. The money is good.
“But when I stumbled into this, I did it because it was fun and I’m no goo at anything else. To get paid to make movies? This is the greatest gig in the world,” he added.
