Gary Sinise teased by soldiers over Forrest Gump role

Actor Gary Sinise said was teased when he visited American soldiers because of his role in Forrest Gump.

The 56-year-old star, who helps members of the Army and their families through his organisation, said to FOX411: 'I'm always involved, trying to do what I can. I have a foundation that provides military support and helps the families, we have a lot of wounded soldiers and marines.

'Next week I'm playing a concert with my band to raise money for a guy who got blown up and lost both his arms and both his legs.'

The actor played Vietnam war survivor Lieutenant Dan in the hit movie Forrest Gump and said people still remember his role.

He said: 'I go out and visit the troops and they always call me Lieutenant Dan. I figure that is just part of being in a successful movie, so I just embrace it.'.'
