Tom Hanks cried off-camera to help 12-year-old co-star – Page Six

Tom Hanks is such an acting pro, he cried off-camera to help a 12-year-old co-star with an emotional scene for their upcoming Western flick, “News of The World.”

“He was literally crying in every scene, even when it wasn’t shot on him — it was my close-up,” Hank’s German co-star Helena Zengel said at a digital screening.

“He cried in every scene that I should get emotional … Doing it again and again for your partner when you don’t even see yourself in the movie was really amazing and great.”

The movie, about a Civil War veteran helping a child return home, comes out Christmas day in select theaters.
