Tom Hanks was one of the first stars to become coronavirus in March. In an interview on The Late Show, he told the host Stephen Colbert what symptoms COVID-19 encountered and how his wife Rita Wilson overcame the illness, who also became infected.
The couple fell ill in Australia, where Hanks flew to shoot a new film. The actor noted that for him the news of a positive test for coronavirus was a shock: “We had no idea where we could get infected.”
According to the actor, the wife had a high fever and “terrible nausea”. Rita also lost her sense of smell: “We did not yet know about such a symptom. We ate food from delivery, and it seemed amazing to me, and Rita is like “tastes like sour milk”. I thought she was out of her mind. “
Interestingly, with Tom Hanks, the coronavirus showed itself in a completely different way: “My bones turned out to be made of crackers. Every time I walked, it felt like something inside me was cracking. ” At the same time, the 64-year-old actor’s sense of smell remained, but he was overtaken by another misfortune: Hanks admitted that there were severe pains in the “fifth point”, “as if someone had punched her”.
The couple took about 9-10 days to recover.
