Tom Hanks might be in quarantine in Australia with his wife Rita Wilson after being diagnosed with coronavirus, but he’s remaining upbeat by quoting a line from one of his famous roles.
In an Instagram post, Hanks wrote: ‘Hello folks. @ritawilson and I want to thank everyone here Down Under who are taking such good care of us.’
‘We have Covid-19 and are in isolation so we do not spread it to anyone else. There are those for whom it could lead to a very serious illness.
The two-time Academy Award winner said he and his wife, both 63, ‘are taking it one-day-at-a-time’ amid the global health pandemic.
In a tear-jerking line quoting his A League Of Their Own character Jimmy Dugan, he signed off in saying, ‘Remember, despite all the current events, there is no crying in baseball.’
In the 1992 movie, the actor played the manager of a World War II-era female professional baseball team that included Rosie O’Donnell, Madonna and Geena Davis.
