Tom Hanks and Rita Wilson Have Tested Positive for the Coronavirus

Late last night, Tom Hanks shared some surprising news on Instagram and Twitter: He and his wife Rita Wilson have tested positive for the coronavirus. Currently, the couple is in Australia, where Hanks is filming Baz Luhrmann’s upcoming Elvis Presley movie, and both got tested after they began feeling slightly ill. “We felt a bit tired, like we had colds, and some body aches,” Hanks posted. “Rita had some chills that came and went. Slight fevers too. To play things right, as is needed in the world right now, we were tested for the coronavirus, and were found to be positive.” Hanks went on to say that he and Wilson “will be tested, observed, and isolated for as long as public health and safety requires.”

As the news broke, Warner Bros., which is producing Luhrmann’s film, also issued a statement, saying, “We are working closely with the appropriate Australian health agencies to identify and contact anyone who may have come in direct contact with the individual. The health and safety of our company members is always our top priority, and we are taking precautions to protect everyone who works on our productions around the world.”
