Tom Hanks confirmed on Twitter tonight that he and wife Rita Wilson have both tested positive for coronavirus, or COVID-19, after experiencing colds, body aches, and slight fevers while in Australia. Per Deadline, the couple are currently there preparing for Baz Luhrmann’s upcoming Elvis Presley film, in which Hanks will play Presley’s manager Colonel Tom Parker.
“Well, now. What to do next?” Hanks wrote, in true wholesome Hanks fashion. Following medical guidelines, “We Hanks’ will be tested, observed, and isolated for as long as public health and safety requires. Not much more to it than a one-day-at-a-time-approach, no?”
