    Tom Hanks definitely got everyone's attention when he said he's made "a ton" of films during his career but only called four of them "pretty good."

    The 66-year-old actor made the shocking comment in a discussion about his upcoming novel titled, "The Making of Another Major Motion Picture Masterpiece," due out in 2023, People magazine noted.

    "The source for a movie can go back as many years as are in history," Hanks explained. "A story turns on a single moment in the life of someone, then all the anecdotes of the current day magnify that moment. Going back to 1947 makes sense, as would have starting in, say, 1559. Human yearning has proven to be timeless."

    "No one knows how a movie is made - though everyone thinks they do," he added. "I've made a ton of movies (and four of them are pretty good, I think) and I'm still amazed at how films come together. From a flicker of an idea to the flickering image onscreen, the whole process is a miracle."

    According to IMDb, the actor has 94 credits to his name, with his career on the big screen starting in 1983 with "Splash."

    It is hard to imagine which four of the nearly 100 movies he's been part of he's calling "pretty good."

    The "Toy Story" star discussed details of his upcoming book with People, saying, "every character in the book does something I've experienced while making a movie, as well as discovered a philosophy or learned an important lesson."

    "Even the foolish moments are some kind of stunt I've pulled or mistake I've survived," he added.

    Hanks's book will deal with the entertainment industry and the making of a "colossal, star-studded, multimillion-dollar superhero action film and the humble comic book that inspired it," per an official synopsis.

    He said that he hopes it "captures as much of 'the accidental judgements and casual slaughter' that go into a motion pictures dictum to hold 'a mirror up to nature' that I have witnessed (and caused) since I joined the Screen Actors Guild."
