Tom Hanks

In 1994, he thanked his “gay teacher” when he was awarded his Best Actor Oscar for “Philadelphia.” The speech was not only a tearjerker, but Hanks also outed his former teacher in the process! . It went on to inspire the 1997 movie “In & Out” that was about a gay teacher (played by Kevin Kline) who was similarly outed when a former student thanked him in his acceptance speech.
