A studious man who won Academy Awards for his performances in both Kramer vs. Kramer and Rain Man has said that he keeps his Oscars in his study.

Hanks famously won the Best Actor Oscar two years in a row (for Philadelphia and Forrest Gump), but he is still one of the friendlier and humbler of Hollywood's giant stars, keeping his Oscars - according to The Hollywood Reporter - on the same shelf as football trophies and "World's Greatest Mom" trophies.
