See What The Young Forrest And Jenny From The Movie 'Forrest Gump' Are Up To Now!
Every movie buff out there will agree with me when I say that 'Forrest Gump' is one hell of a movie. From the story-line to each and every character in it...everything in it was superb and spot on! It made us cry with them, laugh with them and hope with them....that is not an easy feat to accomplish. And Tom Hanks.....was absolutely golden in it. That man is beyond perfection!
Today, we are not gonna talk about the grown ups in 'Forrest Gump', we are gonna talk about the ones who laid the foundation to the story, the young Forrest Gump, and young Jenny.
Michael Connor Humphreys played the role of young Forrest Gump while Jenny Curan was played by Hanna Hall. Both of them were just 10 years old at that time! What a way to start their acting careers huh?
#6 Young Forrest
Playing the role of Forrest Gump was the most amazing way to kickstart his career in Hollywood for Michael Connor Humphreys. Right from the beginning of the movie, Michael played his role to perfection! Perhaps we need to thank him for making us fall in love with the odd kid that Forrest Gump was at first sight.
#5 Young Jenny
Jenny Curan was always a sort of complicated character in the movie. She made us love her and hate her at the same time. Even young Jenny was a tough one! But Hanna Hall sure nailed that part. And of course, it was these two kids who gave us the epic movie line- 'Run Forrest Run!'
#4 Grown Up!
And like Forrest, time sure runs! These two adorable kids are all grown up and making their mark in this world in their own ways. Let's see what they are up to shall we?
Michael Connor Humphreys was inspired by the movie so much that he, like Forrest Gump, joined the U.S. Army infantry for 4 years. During which time he did an 18-month tour of duty in Iraq.In short- he became a real life hero. But that wasn't all!
#2 More Acting!
Michael acted in a couple of movies back in 2011 like 'Pathfinders: In The Company Of Strangers.' But he is currently still in school en route to getting his international relations degree. He plans on selling planes for Airbus or Boeing overseas.
#1 Meanwhile Jenny...
Meanwhile, Hanna Hall continued working in Hollywood by playing the role of Cecilia in 1999's 'The Virgin Suicides' and the 'Halloween' remake which was directed by Rob Zombie. After which, Hanna took some time off from acting to attend the Vancouver Film School. Now, Hanna is working as a theater director in Venice, California. She makes TV show appearances on shows like 'Masters of Sex' and 'Criminal Minds.'
