John Travolta Turned Down Forrest Gump

That’s right, John Travolta, not Tom Hanks, was the original pick for Forrest, Forrest Gump. He, of course, turned down the role and has said that it was one of the biggest mistakes he’s made in his career. But it’s not the only role he and Hanks have in common:

“I wouldn’t trade (my career) for anyone’s except Tom Hanks’, I don’t think.

Other than Forrest Gump and The Green Mile, which I was offered and should have done, and Splash was written for me, I still like my career better because of what I specifically contribute to it.”

You mad, bruh?
