Meanwhile, he is also considered an American cultural icon and is one of the most renowned and recognizable cinema stars in the world. Likely, his films have grossed more than $4.9 billion in the US and more than $9.96 billion worldwide, making him the fourth-highest-grossing actor in the country.

According to the supposed report, he was arrested on 135 counts of child p*rn possession. As a result, many people have been curious to know if he is a pedophile. Well, here is what we know.
An Instagram Post Accuses Tom Hanks of Being a Pedophile by Using an Out-Of-Context Video of Him!

The video's caption reads, Tom Hanks Not Even Trying To Hide It, and it includes several hashtags, including #epstein and #ghislanemaxwell, which refer to Jeffrey Epstein, a financier who died in jail in 2019 before being tried on sexual abuse and sex trafficking charges, and Ghislaine Maxwell, Epstein's friend who was sentenced to 20 years in prison in June for conspiring with Epstein to sexually abuse minors.
Pants on Fire has received similar, unsubstantiated accusations concerning Hanks and pedophilia from PolitiFact. Further, the Instagram post was highlighted as part of Facebook's attempts to combat misinformation and misleading news in its News Feed. However, the piece later removes his footage from context. It's from a sketch he did in 2011 for the late-night talk show Jimmy Kimmel Live, satirizing the reality show Toddlers & Tiaras.
Toddlers & Tiaras, which broadcast on TLC from 2009 to 2016, was chastised for sexualizing young children competing in beauty pageants, wearing costumes, and doing routines that were deemed too adult in tone. The sketch made fun of the reality show but did not condone pedophilia. It starred Tom Hanks as an overbearing father obsessed with his imaginary daughter Sophie winning a child beauty competition dubbed Miss Ultimate Sexy Baby Nevada.
Without evidence, QAnon conspiracy theorists have long alleged that some famous politicians and celebrities are participating in a demonic child sex trafficking organization.
Mattel Is Moving Forward With Tom Hanks in Major Matt Mason Film!
Tom Hanks will star in a new type of adventure in the near future as he takes on the title role in Mattel's Major Matt Mason film. According to Variety, the film was announced in 2019, but the success Barbie has had at the box office is encouraging the toy industry to continue converting their concepts into theatrical movies.
The next film about an astronaut who lives and works on the Moon already has some talent tied to it, even though a production date hasn't been set. The famed actor has already been seen flying a plane and guiding a popular bunch of toys into the future, but now it's time for him to travel to the Moon.

The screenplay for the next space story has been written by Akiva Goldsman and Michael Chabon, but with the current Writers Guild of America strike attempting to bring significant change to the industry, it will be some time before any progress can be made in the development of the picture.
Moreover, Goldsman has already worked on the screenplay for The Dark Tower, a 2017 adaptation of Stephen King's novel starring Idris Elba and Matthew McConaughey. In contrast, Chabon has written stories that take place in the Star Trek universe and has won the Pulitzer Prize.
Mattel understands how rapidly things move in the industry, and if they want to capitalize on the success of their most recent project this summer, they will need to start filming sooner rather than later. The toy firm is presently working on films based on several of its other trademarks, including Barney, Hot Wheels, and even Polly Pocket.
Perhaps toys are exactly what the box office needs now that superheroes look to be no longer a safe bet for production firms. It remains to be seen whether the future will be available in a limited edition bundle.
