Tom Hanks is a mammoth actor who has delighted fans with extraordinary performances for just short of 40 years. He started his career by providing us with some delightfully 80s classics in the era of big hair and bright colours with greats such as Splash, Big and Turner & Hooch. In the 90s he gave us a cacophony of feel-good flicks including Sleepless in Seattle, Forrest Gump and the first of one of the most successful trilogies of all time, Toy Story.

"Earn Your Own Money" Sting Denies Children His Fortune


Sting

Sting doesn't want his children to inherit his £180m fortune so that they can earn their own way in the world. The British rocker revealed his rather divisive plans in an interview with the Mail on Sunday, making it clear that his six children haven't had and won't have an easy ride and will have to stand on their own two feet.

The 62 year-old former Police star, who is one of Britain's wealthiest musicians, has revealed that he places an emphasis on encouraging his children "to succeed on their own merit" which they are happy to do. What's more, Sting claims that his fortune is depleting because of hefty outgoings.

He said: "I told them there won't be much money left because we are spending it. We have a lot of commitments. What comes in we spend, and there isn't much left. I certainly don't want to leave them trust funds that are albatrosses round their necks. They have to work. All my kids know that and they rarely ask me for anything, which I really respect and appreciate."

Hugh Jackman Clint Eastwood Sting

Not only are the Tonys hilarious, entertaining… glittery, etc. – they’re also pretty democratic.

Hugh Jackman
Ten years after his first time hoSting, Jackman has gotten even better.

As for Hugh Jackman, who hosted the musical theatre awards for the first time in a decade, the Wolverine star did not disappoint. Jackman gave it his all straight from the opening sequence, which to be fair, is often the centerpiece of the show. That Wolverine training must have come in handy, as Jackman  he hopped his way through the theater and backstage, down the aisles and into an elevator before making his way to the main stage for the show's opening.
