Chet Hanks Reveals What It's Really Like To Be Famous

If you've ever wondered what it's like to be Chet Hanks, look no further as the son of Tom Hanks breaks it all down in a Youtube video.

Chet went viral a few times over the past year or two but it was rarely for positive things.

"There's a lot of advantages but sometimes, it can be pretty weird. I got to do a lot of cool sh*t that a lot of people don't get the opportunity to do. I got to travel the world, stay in nice hotels, fly on private planes and I'm very blessed for that. I wouldn't change my situation," he said.

"My experience was even more complicated because on top of fame already being toxic, I wasn't even famous. I was just the son of somebody famous so I hadn't even done anything to deserve any sort of recognition and that created a lot of contempt," Hanks continued. "People would make up their minds about me before they even got the chance to know me and it was extremely hard to break down their walls."
