Days after they both tested positive for the novel coronavirus, Tom Hanks and his wife Rita Wilson, are offering updates on social media to their concerned fans.
The couple, who is currently under quarantine in Australia, have posted to their personal accounts frequently. Hanks expressed he has no qualms about being in isolation until he and his wife are no longer contagious because “there are those for whom it could lead to a very serious illness.”
Wilson, on the other hand, has been having fun on social media. She told her followers she wanted to create a Spotify playlist for people who are self-quarantined with songs related to isolation and asked them for their suggestions for songs to include as well as a name for the playlist. Named “Quarantunes,” the collection of songs include “I Wanna Be Sedated” by the Ramones, “Survivor” by Destiny’s Child, “I Want to Break Free” by Queen, “Stronger (What Doesn’t Kill You)” by Kelly Clarkson and “U Can’t Touch This” by MC Hammer.
Hanks and Wilson were in Australia for the pre-production of Baz Luhrmann’s untitled Elvis Presley film where Hanks is set to play Presley’s longtime manager Colonel Tom Parker.
