Chet Hanks is the son of not one, but two famous parents, but it hasn’t stopped him from getting into trouble. Chet has had his fair share of Hollywood privileges as the son of Tom Hanks and Rita Wilson. However, as Hanks continues to concentrate on music in the hopes of ascending the charts, he has established a persona that is less like his parents and more like a rapper.

However, Hanks’ job isn’t the only reason he’s made headlines. There was also a feud between the founder of White Boy Summer and his ex, in which the former couple sued each other for physical violence.

In recent months, there hasn’t been much from Tom Hanks’ camp, but he reappeared in a new YouTube video where he discusses the “toxic” aspect of celebrity.

There’s a lot of advantages but sometimes, it can be pretty weird. I got to do a lot of cool sh-t that a lot of people don’t get the opportunity to do. I got to travel the world, stay in nice hotels, fly on private planes and I’m very blessed for that. I wouldn’t change my situation.


My experience was even more complicated because on top of fame already being toxic, I wasn’t even famous. I was just the son of somebody famous so I hadn’t even done anything to deserve any sort of recognition and that created a lot of contempt. People would make up their minds about me before they even got the chance to know me and it was extremely hard to break down their walls.

Chet Hanks also discussed about what it was like growing up as the son of two celebrity actors. According to Hanks, these encounters shaped his rough exterior. Like anyone, he wants to make a name for himself and not ride the waves of his parents’ fame.

Tom Hanks’ son also revealed that he has stopped partying and made substantial adjustments in his life with the hopes of doing better for himself and his family in the future. Take a look at the video below.
