Tom Hanks’ Son Shares About Drug Addiction

The recent confession of Chet Hanks again unveils a brusque truth about the glamour life. The tomb of success touches the zenith but the shadow underneath is darker than imagination. The 25-year-old Chet, son of much celebrated and recognized actor Tom Hanks, has recently uncurtained some filthy facts about his life. The darker days and the heaviness for being the offspring of Tom Hanks.

Chet has shared an inspiring journey in a series of Instagram posts that narrate how he comes out of his drug addiction with the help of motivation. Rita Wilson, Chet’s mother does not feel ashamed for his son’s past mistakes but rather encouraged the effort as she posted the videos in Instagram that may inspire others to open up and tell their stories. Chet is recovering from his Cocaine addiction and somehow put a partial onus on the pressure and baggage he had to carry as a star-kid, especially as the son of Tom Hanks, such a revered actor.


The trend of drug addiction is not new in Hollywood, the largest showbiz platform on earth. Starting from 1940s-50s, perhaps earlier, celebrities are enduring incessant addictions sometimes intentionally summoning their doom. The names are endless. Ranging from Elizabeth Taylor, Marilyn Monroe, Judy Garland, Elvis Presley, to Robert Downey Jr, Johnny Depp, Amy Winehouse, Lindsay Lohan, Drew Barrymore and many others. Though the reasons are different in every case but they all are found in a state of melancholia. It’s undeniable that the unremitting contest, the constant struggle to stand strong and repeated betrayal make their lives apparently like bubbles and thereby entering an unending solitariness. Some can deal with the pessimism and some seeks refuge in the transient world of drugs.

Fortunately Chet is one of them, who are bringing back the main course of life after heading to a rehabilitation center. He admitted to snort cocaine frequently that sometimes he ended up clogging his nose. The aspiring rapper added that he was even into the trading deals of drug for a couple of months.

Finally the good news is he has found the solution to discover himself in a new and positive journey.
