In March 2020, Rita Wilson and her husband Tom Hanks were two of the first of the group of celebrities to announce that they had tested positive for COVID-19. Wilson recently shared that she and her husband of more than 30 years have not yet received the vaccine.
Speaking to “Today”, the actress and singer explained why they have not yet been vaccinated.
“How about hearing this for the first time in your life: ‘You’re not old enough,'” she said. “It’s like, ‘Okay, I take it!'”
“But now we are queuing because there are already many people vaccinated and they are opening to the next level,” he added.
The couple was diagnosed while in Australia. Hanks was making a film about Elvis Presley, directed by Baz Luhrmann, in which he plays the singer’s manager, Colonel Tom Parker, and Wilson was touring for his latest album, “Halfway to Home.”
They suffered mild symptoms and Hanks later said they planned to donate their blood to help others, as it contained antibodies.
Wilson told “Today” that finding out that they were carriers of the antibodies “was extraordinary because you know you have some protection. That is why the vaccine also helps people.
“Witnessing how people hug each other for the first time in a year, grandparents hugging their grandchildren, people hugging their parents, there is nothing like that,” he said. “It is a real gift.”
