Typewriter fan (he has a collection) Hanks also revealed that he brought with him an eerily apt model on his trip to Oz.

“I travelled here with a typewriter, one I used to love. We are all in this together. Flatten the curve,” he added.

Hanks revealed he'd tested positive for the virus last week, and was admitted to hospital.

He's in Australia in pre-production for Baz Lurhmann's new movie, a biopic of Elvis Presley in which Hanks is set to play Col. Tom Parker, Presley's manager.

However, Lurhmann is now also self-isolating, after having come into contact with Hanks, and the film's production is halted for the time being.
