Oscar winner Tom Hanks is one of the most bankable and famous A-list actors in Hollywood today. He is well known for some of the most critically-acclaimed films like “Catch Me If You Can,” “Saving Private Ryan,” and “Philadelphia.”
He also starred in some of the most popular movies of the 20th century, like “Forrest Gump,” “Castaway,” “Sleepless in Seattle,” and “The Da Vinci Code.”
Long-lasting leading man.
Surprisingly enough, Hanks is likeable and approachable despite his A-list status.
This is a far cry from most celebrities who are known to be self-centered and concerned only with how to further their star power.
The media has never reported Hanks as getting into or stirring up trouble, this despite the actor having been in the film business for nearly 40 years.
Another thing Tom Hanks is known for is his long-standing marriage to fellow actress, Rita Wilson.
Hanks and Wilson have been married an astounding 28 years, considered a miracle in the fickle and short-term hookups of Hollywood.
Hanks first met Wilson when they co-starred in the 1985 comedy film, “Volunteers.” However, they didn’t get married until 1988, a year after Hank and his first wife, actress Samantha Lewes, got divorced.
It was true love for Hanks.
He even agreed to convert to the Greek Orthodox Church to marry Rita Wilson.
Now, over 30 years after they married, the 60-year-old actor admits his marriage is “untouchable.”
“When we first looked at each other there was definitely a kind of a, ‘Hey, this is the place!’ I felt that anyway. I think the end result is that we got married for all the right reasons.”
His wife agrees with him thoroughly.

And very publicly, too.

“We just like each other. You start there.”

Little Girl From the Philippines Does Awesome Taylor Swift Impersonation
Child performer Xia Vigor — who literally became Taylor Swift’s “mini me” — is getting global attention for her talent.
Child performer Xia Vigor has gained worldwide fame for channeling Taylor Swift in a kiddie talent show in the Philippines. The weekly show is titled Your Face Sounds Familiar: Kids and is broadcast on ABS-CBN, one of the country's most popular TV networks.
As the show's title indicates, the child contestants impersonate popular performers. Seven-year-old Xia — who is the daughter of a British national named Alan Vigor and a Filipino lady named Christy Bernardo — stunned everyone with her T-Swift number. She even donned a blonde wig for it. She performed an elaborate routine to the tune of Swift's 2008 hit "You Belong With Me."
Of course, she had the same costume as T-Swift.

How Silent Movies Created Their Special Effects Without Modern Computers
Just brilliant and creative. This is most impressive!
Thanks to modern computers, movies these days now have more eye-popping effects than we ever enjoyed, say, 20 years ago. CGI (short for ‘computer-generated imagery’) has brought appealing visuals on our favorite movies, regardless of the genre.
Those gigantic robots and flying superheroes? Heck, even those realistic animals interacting with humans? They’re all created using computers.
Actually, the technology has even progressed to the point that even digital recreations of deceased actors look almost completely flawless now. Just think Peter Cushing ‘reprising’ his role as Grand Moff Tarkin in the recent Star Wars: Rogue One movie, despite having passed away back in 1994.
