NEW YORK: Two-time Oscar winner Tom Hanks has broken his silence on the drug addiction of his son Chet, saying he applauds the way his child shared his issues with the world.
During the premiere of his newest movie "Bridge of Spies" here, the actor applauded Chet's courage.
"As a parent, you love your kids unconditionally. You support them every step of the way. You got to applaud the bravery and honesty when it actually comes out of your own house," Tom told Entertainment Tonight, reports aceshowbiz.com.
Chet, 26, an aspiring rapper, had opened up on his personal struggles on social media.
He had spoken about his journey of self discovery on Instagram, explaining that having a famous father made it difficult for him to find a place where he could fit in.
"There's nothing glorious about bringing yourself closer to death and prison. If you're struggling with this sh*t take yourself to a meeting, you know? Call some people,” he had said.
