Forrest Gump: little known facts
 

 
Forrest was suppose to be an astronaut, a pro wrestler

Movie based on unpopular book

Others who were considered for role: John Travolta, Bill Murray and Chevy Chase

Tom Hanks wasn't sold his southern accent would fly

6th sense kid, is Jenny's seed

d*ck Cavette wasn't added in cgi, it was really him with make up on to look younger

Terry Gilliam was the first choice of director, and 2nd was Barry sonnenfeld who chose the Adam's family values over it

Sally field was suppose to be the love interest

At the time only lion king did better at the box office
Won back to back best actor (only 2md time ever done)

The original line in the book is" being an idiot is no box of chocolates"

A sequel was written where Gump is in the 80s and eventually meets Tom hanks

Sequel was written in2001 and scrapped when 9/11 happened

There is an Indian remake coming out, it's delayed due to the pandemic

Forrest never blinks when playing ping pong after guy tells him never take your eye of the ball

GARY SINISE MADE A BAND CALLED: LT DAN BAND AND RAISES MONEY FOR VETS AND DOES USO SHOWS

Ton hanks + Gary Sinise = Green Mile, Apollo 13. And Forrest Gump

Jenny's last name is Curran. Only can be seen on Forrest mail

. Forrest never blinks when playing ping pong after guy tells him never take your eye of the ball

Dam... Never noticed that in the movie... I wonder if the director told him that before the scenes and Tom's great acting made it happen

My aunt lives in Savannah and she took me to the little square/spot where the bench is where he was waiting for the bus. Apparently, they only pull the actual bench out for special occasions or holidays.

Lot of other factz

Kurt Russell did the Elvis voice but someone else played the Elvis charahcter.

The Alabama football stadium was some stadium in LA and all the fans were CGI.

The Vietnam scenes were shot in South Carolina.

Tom Hanks based his accent off of the kid who played young Forrest, not the other way around.

Paramount didn't know Bubba Gump Shrimp would become what it did. After the movie came out, they got demands from Paramount to mass-produce more hats that they quickly sold throughout the country. Bubba Gump Shrimp Company is now a worldwide seafood restaurant chain with 29 locations in the U.S. and several others across the globe.

What Forrest Gump Said at the Vietnam Protest March

“Sometimes when people go to Vietnam, they go home to their mommas without any legs. Sometimes they don’t go home at all. That’s a bad thing. That’s all I have to say about that.”
