Tom Hanks the actor shows us characters who overcome tragedy despite long odds.
Tom Hanks the real-life father now is struggling to overcome his own family tragedy.
And he, and his son, may actually succeed.
“I know, like, my name’s been in the media about me like going missing or getting kidnapped or something. I just want to let you all know, I’ve been in rehab … and I’m doing pretty damn good,” the 25-year-old said earlier this week in one of a series videos that show him grateful and pointing others toward God and treatment, the Los Angeles Times reported.
“A couple months ago I was selling coke, doing coke until I couldn’t even snort it up my nose anymore because it was so clogged,” he said in another video. “I even smoked crack. If I can change, you can change. There is a solution.”
Chet Hanks said he has traveled a long journey “discovering who I am because of all the pressures that I’ve dealt with in my life, you know, being the son of my dad and everything, and just trying to find where I fit in.”
