Hello everyone! I wanted to take a moment to address what is happening in our world. Due to the Covid-19 situation I have had some major changes happening in my life to provide safety for my family and the other individuals around me. I have moved to a working from home environment, both of my daughters are home with me full-time, and my schooling has moved to online. Having said that I want to encourage each of you to do the same … take time to consider the state of our world and how YOU can help slow down the spread of this awful illness.
If you need something else to keep you busy … login to Netflix and watch some of Tom’s films like Philadelphia, Saving Mr. Banks or The Money Pit! Another option is to login to Amazon Prime Video and watch more of her films including Apollo 13.
In the meantime I have added some additional outtakes from last year’s Actors on Actors Studio shoot with Renee Zellweger to our gallery for you to enjoy!

Tom is smart. Be Like Tom.
In all seriousness please follow his advice … stay home and keep safe.
Unfortunately Tom has shared the news that while in Australia he and Rita noticed illness symptoms and decided to be tested and the tests came back positive. For those of the followers of our site we want to encourage you to take the necessary precautions of washing your hands properly and following the advice of local leaders and health care providers.
Here is Tom’s instagram sharing the news:

Hello, folks. Rita and I are down here in Australia. We felt a bit tired, like we had colds, and some body aches. Rita had some chills that came and went. Slight fevers too. To play things right, as is needed in the world right now, we were tested for the Coronavirus, and were found to be positive. Well, now. What to do next? The Medical Officials have protocols that must be followed. We Hanks’ will be tested, observed, and isolated for as long as public health and safety requires. Not much more to it than a one-day-at-a-time approach, no? We’ll keep the world posted and updated. Take care of yourselves! Hanx!
I have added hq captures to the gallery from Tom’s most recent film, A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood. Such a beautiful film full of lessons related to love, family, and discovering ones self.
