Well the conservative movement doesn’t have a lot of love loss for Tom Hanks. He has a message for all of us though.
If you won’t wear a mask, you’re a pussy. That’s what Tom Hanks literally said in an interview according to People.
“Those things are so simple, so easy, if anybody cannot find it in themselves to practice those three very basic things — I just think shame on you,” said Hanks of mask-wearing and social distancing at a recent press conference promoting his new film, Greyhound, according to a report by People. “Don’t be a pussy, get on with it, do your part. It’s very basic. If you’re driving a car, you don’t go too fast, you use your turn signal and you avoid hitting pedestrians. My Lord, it’s common sense.”
“There’s really only three things we can do in order to get to tomorrow: Wear a mask, social distance, wash our hands,” said Hanks of what Americans need to be doing in order to ensure that they are doing their part.
Hanks and his celebrity wife Rita Wilson both contracted the virus when they were in Australia.
“As the canaries in the coal mine for the COVID-19 experience, we are fine,” added Hanks of his and Wilson’s personal experience with the disease. “We had about 10 days of very uncomfortable symptoms. Not life-threatening, we’re happy to say.”
“We were isolated in order to keep an eye on ourselves because if our temperatures had spiked, if our lungs had filled, if any number of things had gone wrong with this, we would have needed expert medical care. We didn’t,” the actor continued.
“I guess we were model recoverers from COVID-19, but we were also isolated so that we would not give it to anybody else that we came in contact with, and since then have been doing the same isolating, social distancing that is being asked of the world so, we are fine,” he added.
