Tom Hanks Blames His Lack Ability to Trust Others on Dysfunctional Upbringing


Tom Hanks


The 'Sleepless in Seattle' actor admits that he isn't able to easily trust someone because when he was a kid, he spent his early years moving from town to town.

Tom Hanks has opened up about his childhood, blaming his dysfunctional upbringing for his inability to form lasting bonds in adult life. The "Philadelphia" star's parents divorced when he was just five years old and he spent the rest of his early years moving from town to town with his siblings and dad Amos, who made a habit of uprooting the family to new locations.

And Hanks believes the lack of stability in his youth has affected his ability to trust others. He tells Britain's Daily Mirror, "When I was growing up, we moved around an awful lot so we didn't have a lot of friends around us that we really knew well."

"We were always taking off. Our father was a cook who moved often, uprooting us. We saw our mother on holidays. Altogether, I had three mothers, four fathers, five schools and 10 houses. My childhood wasn't a bed of roses, but it made me independent."

"Since I moved around so much as a kid, I didn't have an awful lot of friends. I don't think it's part of my make-up to completely open up. I can pretend to be very good friends with people then not have anything to do with them for 18 months."
