Yesterday, Tom Hanks revealed that he and his wife Rita Wilson both have the Coronavirus. In the reveal, he did not show us what they looked, so we were left to imagine.

Today, they posed for this photo and had a little message for us. He wrote, “Hello folks. @ritawilson and I want to thank everyone here Down Under who are taking such good care of us. We have Covid-19 and are in isolation so we do not spread it to anyone else. There are those for whom it could lead to a very serious illness. We are taking it one-day-at-a-time. There are things we can all do to get through this by following the advice of experts and taking care of ourselves and each other, no? Remember, despite all the current events, there is no crying in baseball. Hanx”

So don’t cry for them because they will be bringing it home soon.

Earlier today, I was thinking this is something that would happen to Forrest Gump, and he would unknowingly become the face of the virus.

UPDATE: Rita Wilson is trying to have a sense of humor about it, “From here on out, the only Corona I want is from Mexico and you drink it.”

Tom Hanks and Rita Wilson are the first celebrities with the Coronavirus

Hollywood is not immune from the Coronavirus because Tom Hanks revealed today that he and his wife Rita Wilson both tested positive for the virus in the land down under.

Hello, 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?

Hopefully, the two 63-year-olds will be healthy soon like most of the people who get it.

BTW Why wasn’t anyone protecting him from getting it. The 2-time Oscar winner is a national treasure and needs to be protected. There are a handful of celebs, who meet this requirement, and he is one of them.

UPDATE: Colin Hanks gives an update on his parents.

“We are so grateful for the outpouring of support from everyone. My parents are receiving excellent care in Australia and are doing well (and in good spirits) given the circumstances. Despite the fact that I’m in LA and haven’t seen them in over three weeks, we have been in constant contact and am confident that they will make a full recovery.”

Hollywood nice guys Henry Winkler and Tom Hanks don’t get along

When you think of Hollywood’s nicest actors, Henry Winkler and Tom Hanks’ names immediately come to mind. However, these two men do not get along.

Yesterday, when The Fonz was on Watch What Happens Live, a caller wanted to know if it is true that he and Kip Wilson had a falling out when they worked together on Turner & Hooch in the late ’80s. Turns out Winkler was hired to direct the film and on the lucky 13th day, Jeffrey Katzenberg sent him home never to return again.

Andy Cohen asked him that is true, Winkler said, “I got along great…great with that dog.” Then he added, “I love that dog.”

Of course, he said it in the nicest way possible because when it comes to Hollywood’s nicest guy, he is tops on that list. Followed by Jerry O’Connell. Hanks used to be third, but now he is going to be slipping a few notches after this reveal.

We need to get these two men together and have them reconcile. I feel like if they can’t make it work, no one else can. How can we expect peace in the Middle East if these two cannot be bosom buddies? I feel like all of my happy days just became sad ones.

On that note, I wonder if Hanks has had an issue with Winkler because he kicked his a$$ during their 1982 fight on Happy Days. Never saw their epic fight, then click here!

Proof Tom Hanks’ career has been leading to A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood

Yesterday, Sony released the trailer for Tom Hanks as Mister Rogers in A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood. Part of starring in that movie is singing the theme song that every kid knows until this day

However, the Oscar winner has sung that song before in several of his movies. It was just in code, a code that Jimmy Fallon broke on The Tonight Show yesterday.

Therefore, his films like Philadelphia, Big and Toy Story were all leading to this. Who knew?

Try not to smile throughout the A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood trailer
July 22nd, 2019 under Tom Hanks. [ Comments: none ]


The first trailer is out for A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood that has Tom Hanks starring as Mister Rogers. If that is not enough reason to put a huge smile on your face, then the 2:26 seconds that come after you hit play will do just that.

Both men are pure goodness. There is no actor who could do a better job playing the legend, so I will be there on Thanksgiving seeing this movie. Because I am thankful that I had both of them to look up to when I was growing up.

And thankfully as This Is Us’ Susan Kelechi Watson warns her husband in the promo, it doesn’t ruin our childhoods. It just makes the make-believe a reality!
