(FOXNEWS) – Forrest Gump (1994) is one of the most iconic persons
in movie history, but according to actor Tom Hanks, the film hit a
lot of
roadblocks. So much so, that Hanks and “Forest Gump”
director Robert Zemeckis had to dig into their own pockets
to pay for some scenes to be shot. 

On the podcast In Depth With Graham Bensinger, the 64-year
-old actor revealed Paramount wouldn’t approve some of the
budgets, including the scenes where Forrest famously runs
across the United States (below).

Zemeckis and Hanks knew the scene was integral to the movie
and came up with their own plan.
