Young Jenny from "Forrest Gump" is all grown up and as beautiful as ever
When Forrest Gump hit the big screen waaay back in 1994, our cinematic lives were forever changed – and we haven’t looked at a box of chocolate the same ever since. We still can’t get over the story of the lovable Forrest Gump, the love of his life Jenny, and their larger-than-life experiences (and influences) with some of the biggest events of the 20th century. Of course, we love ALL the performances in this iconic film by its all-star cast, including Tom Hanks, Sally Field, and Robin Wright…but let’s not forget about some of the smaller, but still totally memorable, roles.
Like Young Jenny.
Portrayed by actor Hanna Hall, Young Jenny plucked our heart strings from the moment she offered a seat to Forrest on their school bus. Aside from the fact that Jenny and Forrest are one of our favorite film-mances ever, we also loved Hanna’s stellar performance as Young Jenny! We were seriously impressed.
In real life, Hanna is still as beautiful and talented as ever and has continued to act in a number of high-profile film and TV projects, post-Gump.
Here’s Hanna now, just casually rockin’ some fierce red lips.
**Quietly yells,** “Hanna, what shade is that and where do we get it?!”
And most recently, Hanna guest starred in Showtime’s Masters of Sex.
Slaying the retro lingerie game!
You may even remember some of Hanna’s earlier projects like Sofia Coppola’s The Virgin Suicides.
Hanna starred across Kirsten Dunst and gave another powerful performance.
And, of course, Hanna is no stranger to ~killin’~ it on the red carpet either, like when she did for the premiere of the 2007 Halloween reboot.
We can’t wait to see where life takes this talented star next!
And we’re sure whatever Hanna gets up to next, it will be amazing.
