Hanks grew up in Oakland and has fond memories of his time at Skyline High. When he first found fame in 1986, he returned to the school to give a graduation speech, telling the students, “I live in the best city in the best part of the world. I went to the best high school in the best city in the world.” The actor also threw some shade at the East Bay’s private and higher profile schools in the speech, adding, “I’m not talking about Piedmont High or Oakland Tech, and I’m not talking about Bishop O’Dowd. I’m talking about Skyline High!”
The actor recently shared his high school graduation photo on Twitter, writing, “Big Day for Skyline High School in Oakland, CA! Glad to be a part of it! Hanx, ‘74.”
NBC Sports reporter Kerith Burke asked the actor on Twitter Monday if he did indeed learn how to act in the little Montclair Village home; Hanks had not replied at time of publication.
