Tom Hanks Has a Message to Deliver to People Not Wearing Masks

'DISCOMFORT': Tom Hanks opens up about having COVID-19

Tom Hanks is urging Americans to continue to do their part in trying to slow down the spread of the coronavirus.

Opening up to The Guardian about his bout with the virus, the "Sully" star said that enduring the symptoms while far away from home - he was in Australia at the time - was a bit odd considering Hanks and Wilson, both 63, experienced different symptoms back in March when they each tested positive. Speaking to Reuters, he said: "At the very least, three tiny things (are) in everybody's wheelhouse, if you choose to do them".

"I had crippling body aches, I was very worn out all the time and I couldn't concentrate on anything for more than about 12 minutes", the actor told The Guardian.

The Oscar victor said he had concerns about his diagnosis but said their lack of rising body temperatures gave him hope they would come out OK on the other side.


"The Australian officials put us in the hospital, and they kept very strict attention on our fevers because if they had spiked, we were going to be in trouble; our lungs, because if they had filled up or scarred we were going to be in trouble; and the levels of our oxygen". "But I think you flout a lot of realities when two and two don't add up to four", he said.

After previously telling those that refuse to wear masks to stop "being a pussy", the acting legend has once again spoken out on the importance of taking basic precautions amid the outbreak, saying he has "no respect" for people that refuse to wear masks. I know societally it's been politicized, but I don't get it, man. "Simple things. Do your part", he said.

Greyhound was originally set to be released in theaters, but due to the coronavirus shutdown, the film will now be streamed on Apple TV+ which was acquired from Sony Pictures. "If you can't do those three things, you shouldn't be driving a vehicle", he said. "Don't be a p*ssy, get on with it, do your part".

"You've got to use your turn signal, you've got to avoid hitting pedestrians. My Lord, it's common sense". They were among the first famous figures to contract the virus, making them "the celebrity canaries in the coalmine of all things Covid-19", he says.
