Tom Hanks has shared an update now that he and wife Rita Wilson returned home safe and sound after their coronavirus diagnoses and quarantine in Australia.
Back on March 11, Hanks announced that he and Wilson had contracted the novel coronavirus while in Australia for pre-production on Baz Luhrmann’s untitled Elvis Presley film, in which Hanks is set to play Presley’s longtime manager Colonel Tom Parker. Filming for the movie has been halted following Hanks’ diagnosis. The actor is the only person on set believed to have tested positive for the virus, according to a representative from the film in Australia.
Throughout his quarantine, Hanks continued to share positive updates on social media. Five days after they were both diagnosed, he and Wilson were allowed to leave the hospital. And the next day, on March 17, Hanks kept things light as he shared with his followers that he was feeling “the same” as before. He also joked he had his typewriter for company, one that he “used to love,” as the make was called a Corona.
