Tom Hanks and his wife Rita Wilson arrived home in Los Angeles after they both tested positive for coronavirus and spent weeks in isolation in Australia.
The actor stretched to touch the tarmac, then did a festive dance before entering a terminal after he and Wilson landed in Los Angeles on a private jet. The couple were then photographed as they drove back to their house through LA with Hanks at the wheel of a Range Rover.
Hanks and Wilson, both 63, were in Australia to pre-produce Biz Lurhmann’s Elvis Presley film when they announced earlier this month that they had tested positive for the virus.
They were hospitalized briefly before being released in isolation at an unknown Australian residence. And he had tweeted this week that they both felt better before flying home.
Hanks shared several updates on Twitter during the ordeal to remind his followers of the importance of self-quarantine to contain the pandemic.
“Sheltering in place works like this: you don’t give it to anyone – you don’t get it from anyone. Common sense, no?” Hanks wrote.
He added: “It will take a while, but if we take care of each other, help where we can and give up some comforts … this will pass. We can find out. “
Earlier this week, he announced on social media that two weeks after the positive test with the virus, he and Wilson were beginning to feel better as they shared their quarantine playlist with fans.
It is not yet known whether the couple tested negative before returning to the United States. A Hanks representative did not contact us immediately.
