Tom Hanks as Woody
Toy Story was released in 1999, and went on to gross over $373 million dollars. Toy Story was the first feature-length film to be entirely computer-animated, as well as the first feature film from Pixar and featured the voices of heavyweight superstars like Tom Hanks, Woody Allen, and Don Rickles. Apparently, the film’s director had always envisioned Tom Hanks as the happy-go-lucky toy cowboy who fights fearlessly to be returned to his home.
Today Tom Hanks boasts a net worth of over $350 million. Tom Hanks is one of those timeless actors who are really in a league of their own. His films include Big, A League of Their Own, Sleepless in Seattle, Apollo 13, You’ve Got Mail, The Green Mile, and need we continue? Hanks’ instantly recognizable voice has a been a comfort to moviegoers since the 80s, and we’re hoping to continue to see much more from this legend.
