Young Forrest Gump: Now

Michael Conner Humphreys followed in his onscreen character's footsteps and joined the Army in 2005. Michael served until his term ran up in 2008, which included a tour in Iraq. When he left the Army in 2008 [2], Michael said he was still going to school at the University of North Alabama but also wanted to pursue acting. He didn't land many roles since leaving the Army, but he did get a role in 2011's Pathfinders: In the Company of Strangers and scored a bit part in a Norwegian commercial [3] that went viral back in 2010!

Young Jenny Curran: Then

With her big blue eyes and golden blond hair, it was easy to see why young Forrest developed a big crush on little Jenny. But what does she look like now?

Young Jenny Curran: Now

Hanna Hall, the actress who played Jenny in Forrest Gump, looks very different from her young blonder days, but she still has those remarkable blue eyes. Hanna, 30, is still a working actress, but she hasn't had quite the same success as she did when she was a child star. Her most famous post-Forrest Gump credits include 1999's The Virgin Suicides and 2007's Halloween.
