Shit is getting REAL.
National treasure and the one man left in Hollywood that we don't hate, Tom Hanks, has announced that he has tested positive for COVID-19.
In an Instagram post shared on Wednesday evening, the 63-year-old star wrote that he and his wife, Rita Wilson, who are currently in Australia where Hanks is set to begin filming a movie based on the life of Elvis Presley, recently began feeling unwell. "A bit tired, like we had colds, and some body aches," he explained on IG, beneath a photo of a medical glove in what seems to be a hospital.
They got tested for Coronavirus, which has now officially been declared a global pandemic, and the results came in positive.
"We Hanks’ will be tested, observed, and isolated for as long as public health and safety requires," he continued, ending on a seemingly non-panicky note. "Not much more to it than a one-day-at-a-time approach, no?"
Please, universe. The world needs Tom Hanks now more than ever. Here's wishing them both a speedy recovery.
View this post on InstagramHello, folks. Rita and I are down here in Australia. We felt a bit tired, like we had colds, and some body aches. 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. Well, now. What to do next? The Medical Officials have protocols that must be followed. 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? We’ll keep the world posted and updated. Take care of yourselves! Hanx!
