Tom Hanks recently said he was proud of his son Chet’s “bravery and honesty” after the 25-year-old posted a series of Instagram videos sharing his struggles with addiction – and urging others facing similar issues to get help.

There’s a lot to be proud of in the Hanks household lately.

Hanks, 59, spoke with PEOPLE at the Bridge of Spies premiere in New York City on Sunday, where he shared his pride for his eldest son, Colin, 37, from his first marriage with actress Samantha Lewes.

Colin has been hard at work directing the documentary film All Things Must Pass: The Rise and Fall of Tower Records, set to release on Oct. 16th – coincidentally, the very same day his father’s film Bridge of Spies hits theaters.

“I’m in competition with my son!” Hanks joked.

Hanks said he already had a sneak peek at his son’s work and admitted that it made him cry.

The Oscar winner is hoping to have a Hanks family movie night when both films release.

“We really might try to do a tweet-off,” he said. “I hope that he sees mine and I see his on the same night.”
