Trivia: The park bench that Tom Hanks sits on for much of the movie was located in Savannah, GA, at Chippewa Square. The fiberglass bench he sat on has since been removed and placed into a museum to avoid being destroyed by the weather. The church where the feather first falls is about 100 yards just down the street from his bench.

Trivia: Dave Chappelle was originally offered the role of Bubba in Forrest Gump, which was in a pre-production stage. He was concerned about what seemed to be a racially demeaning character so he turned down the part. He has since admitted to regretting the decision.

More quotes from Forrest Gump


Question: What does Jenny die of? And is it mentioned anywhere in the film at all?

Chosen answer: It's not specified in the film, but in the sequel book "Gump & Co" the author mentions that Jenny dies from Hepatitis C as a former drug addict in the early 70s. Hepatitis C was an unknown disease until 1989.

Answer: In 1981, when Forrest meets Jenny again, she says she has a virus that doctors don't know. This virus was the HIV virus, as 1981 marks the AIDS outbreak in the World.

Answer: It could have been HIV or Hepatitis C or something else. Maybe someone related to the story or even Winston Groom himself told this at some other place. Nonetheless, it's false that it appears in that book.

Question: What is the "million dollar wound" Forrest says he he got while rescuing Lt.Dan?

Chosen answer: He's refering to being shot in the butt. They called it a million dollar wound because it didn't do any real permanent damage, but the solider would still be taken to a hospital and sent home from Vietnam. It was a great relief to get a million dollar wound rather than be killed or permanently maimed.
