Forrest Gump: the Facts, the Bloopers, the Trivia

The Guitar Scene

Robin Wright, who played the conflicted character Jenny, gave quite a memorable performance when she strummed away at her guitar while completely naked. I’m going to safely assume that each and every one of you remembers that scene vividly. It was a relatively short scene that took place in a long movie, but the scene took a while to create.


A lot was working against Wright when it came to filming the scene. In total, it took what would amount to a day to get the scene done right. Wright was also sick for a large part of the filming, trying hard to work through sniffles and a runny nose. And that can’t be easy to do in your birthday suit!
