Tom Hanks’ son Chet Hanks is in the eye of the storm after admitting he suffered a lot because of his dad’s fame in a new YouTube video.
The actor and musician claimed that he didn’t have a “strong male role model” growing up, and Tom’s fans immediately defended him on social media.
“Ummm…. Sir, your father was WHOLE Tom Hanks!!! Are you kidding me?? He wasn’t a strong male role model?? 🙄🙄🙄,” one fan wrote on Twitter while another wrote, “My sister is a personal assistant/nanny. One of the people she always talked fondly of was Tom Hanks and how involved he seemed with his children.”
“OMG. This is just pathetic. No one. No one has a perfect childhood or life without problems. Poor Chet was the son of a famous man.” shared another person.
After claiming that lots of people were “intimidated” by him, Chet revealed he went down “a path of self-destruction” and wished he had someone to give him good advice.
