Thomas Horn Tears Up and Talks Having "a Blast" With Tom Hanks and Sandra Bullock

Thomas Horn took home the best young actor/actress award tonight at the Critics' Choice Awards for his work in Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close, and the former winner of Jeopardy: Kids' Week couldn't hold back some tears as he talked about his first big-screen role, his costars Tom Hanks and Sandra Bullock, and whether he'll continue on his newfound path as an actor.

On learning from Tom Hanks and Sandra Bullock: "It was really amazing to work with them and I learned so much from them. . . . Just about the way an actor has to carry themselves on camera, off camera, the way the actor has to get completely into character and remain there. . . . They're really great. It was just a blast. I fell in love with them! I'm so lucky."

On having a fan in Angelina Jolie and maybe working with her in the future: "I think I might. I met her once, briefly, but she seemed really kind and I mean, I've seen some of her work and she's amazing. She's an amazing actress, and yes, I'd love to if I get the chance."


On whether he'll continue acting: "It's really been great to meet all these people, all these actors producers, directors, and I've met so many . . . but I may never necessarily do another movie again, and that would be just fine."

On what he's like in his day-to-day life: "Thomas is a very normal, boring sort of boy, and he likes to read a lot of books and walk and run around and sleep a lot."

On his Jeopardy winnings: "I won $31,800 before taxes and so far I have not spent it."
