Can you believe it has been 22 years since Forrest Gump sat on the bench and said: “life is like a box of chocolates. You Never know which one you’re going to get?”
When we sit down and relive Forrest Gump, we know exactly what we’re going to get: one of the sweetest, saddest, funniest movies of all time.
That nice but slow-witted guy Forrest and his beloved pal Jenny captivated us with many unforgettable scenes. The two childhood sweethearts lives ebbed and flowed into one another’s and the actors that played them were amazing, and one has got to wonder: Where are they now?
The first time the two little buddies met each other, Trump was fascinated by the blue-eyed, slightly disheveled girl.
‘I don’t recall what I got for my first Christmas, I don’t know when I went on my first outdoor picnic, but I do remember the first time I heard the sweetest voice in the whole wide world.’ Forrest recalled.
And the three words the young Jenny encouraged young Forrest with, will be forever etched in our movie memory.
when his enlistment ended in June 2008, and he returned to his acting roots playing a soldier in the independent film Pathfinders: In the Company of Strangers.
Recently, during a 10km charity run, members of the crowd cheered him on by shouting,” Run Forrest, run.” We can imagine how many times he’s heard that in his lifetime.
She has been acting ever since. Here is her playing Sophie in “Neal Cassady.”
Here, she lounges in a pool, playing Georgia in “American Cowslip.”
Here, she tackles the bloody role of Judith Myers in Rob Zombie’s version of the slasher classic, “Halloween.”
She made an impression in “The Virgin Suicides” as Cecilia, the young depressive who takes her own life.
She might have had a lot of roles since, but to us, she’ll always be Jenny, telling Forrest to run.
