Chet Hanks Has Opened Up About His Famous Family
Chet went into detail about his famous upbringing in a February 2022 video posted to his YouTube account titled “Hanx Fit.”
Chet explained that because of his famous parents, many people saw him as an “arrogant, entitled, spoiled brat.” “People would make up their minds about me before they even got a chance to know me,” he continued, “and it was extremely difficult to break down their wall, so I encountered a lot of disdain, animosities, and negativity because everybody was just prepared to hate my guts.”
He also admitted that he “lacked a strong role model to tell [him] ‘bro, f—k these people, they’re just jealous of you.'”
He continued: “I was just the son of someone famous, so I hadn’t done anything to deserve any kind of recognition, and this earned me a lot of scorn… It simply led me down a path of self-destruction throughout my twenties.”
Chet, who has appeared in supporting roles in many films, including Bratz and Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull, as well as television shows such as Empire and Shameless, proudly explained that he earned all of his money himself: “My parents did not lavish me with gifts; I was never given money or an allowance. I’ve had to work for everything I’ve gotten, and it’s been that way my entire life.”
Chet concludes that he “loves his parents” and “wouldn’t want any different parents, and I wouldn’t want any different life, so I’m very grateful and blessed for all of that.”
