“We can really do three things to get to tomorrow: Wear a mask, social distance, wash your hands,” he was quoted as saying. “These things are so simple, so simple, if no one can find them in the practice of these three basic things – I just think you would be ashamed.”
Hanks and Wilson were diagnosed – and quarantined – while in Australia in March.
There he did some pre-production about the Luhrmann Base film Elvis Presley in which Hanks plays the singer’s manager, Colonel Tom Parker.
Wilson had scheduled performances in the country in support of his album.
Now Hanks is urging people to “do their part” to stop the spread of the coronavirus.
“It’s very basic,” he said in a statement for the film he wrote about, as well as the stars. “If you drive a car, don’t go too fast, use a pointer and avoid hitting pedestrians. My lord, that’s common sense.”
