“No one knows how a movie is made – although everyone thinks they do,” he told the outlet.

“I’ve made a lot of movies, and four of them are pretty good, I think, and I’m still amazed at how the movies come together. From the flicker of an idea to a picture flickering on the screen, the whole process is a miracle.”

Hanks did not reveal which of the four films he was referring to.
