It may have been released 22 years ago, but most of us still remember the movie like it was yesterday. It was a film that did what few films had done before: Taken us through decades of American history with real footage and facts, but telling the story through the perspective of a man that many thought would never amount to anything.
If you haven't guessed already, we're talking about Forrest Gump, the 1994 film based on a 1986 novel, directed by Robert Zemeckis, and starring (among others) Tom Hanks. It was a massive hit, and most of us can still quote the film like it was yesterday. And while Hanks and Robyn Wright were amazing in their roles, some of the most unforgettable scenes centered around the young Forrest and Jenny, the two childhood friends whose lives ebbed and flowed into one another's. The actors that played them were amazing, and one has got to wonder: Where are they now?
Well, look no further. Forrest and Jenny are all grown up, and they've each done some pretty remarkable things. Find out what the pair are up to now, below.
Remember these two?
They’re probably one of the most memorable pairs of childhood besties/sweethearts in film, the imitable Forrest Gump and his lifelong pal, Jenny.
Forrest was just an awkward little dude with a leg problem.
And a fierce momma (played by Sally Fields) who would do just about anything to protect him.
The film had many memorable scenes.
This one was one of the best, where Forrest gets fitted for his old-fashioned leg braces to correct his spine.
However, nothing can top this cinematic moment.
Encouraging him to stay out of harm’s way, the young Jenny said these three words that will be forever etched in our movie memory.
So where are they now?
Michael Conner Humphreys played the young Forrest Gump, and that boy sure was a running fool. But what’s he been up to since?
