This post is a reminder that Tom and Rita Hanks are dual citizens of America and Greece. This may not mean much to you, but it is significant to them.

Salacious rumors about Tom Hanks have been making the rounds for years. Your auntie won't repeat such rumors because we live in a very litigious society.

The Hanks are among the bold name stars who accepted free trips on Jeffrey Epstein's infamous "Lolita express" to his pedo island.

Other names on the flight logs include Beyonce and Jay-Z Carter, Will Smith, Pharrell Williams, former Presidents Bill Clinton and Barack Obama, CNN anchor Anderson Cooper, and more.

The Hollywood power couple are among A- and B-list stars and political figures scrambling to get out of dodge - or at least out of the reach of the feds - before Ghislaine Maxwell's dirty secrets become public fodder for the tabloids next week.

Attorneys for Epstein's former madam pleaded with a Manhattan judge to delay the release of previously sealed documents filed in a 2015 lawsuit against Maxwell by a woman who says she was defiled as a minor.

The case was settled out of court to protect the people named in the documents.

U.S. District Court Judge Loretta Preska ruled last week that the public was legally entitled to view the evidence against Maxwell.

The documents allegedly contain the names of red-faced Hollywood celebrities, CEOs and politicians who don't want their alleged predilections for children publicized.

There are reports that "Maxwell has tapes of two prominent U.S. politicians having sex with minors".

Citing "great concerns" about Maxwell's ability to get a fair trial if the documents and tapes go public, Maxwell's lawyer, Laura Menninger, asked the court to delay releasing the documents for two weeks to file an appeal of the court's ruling.

The judge gave Menninger one week to file an appeal.

The corporate-owned news media in America will do the best they can to protect their liberal icons. But there are websites and blogs on the Internet that have nothing to lose by publishing the names.

Tom Hanks and his wife of 32 years, Rita Wilson have tested positive for the coronavirus, also known as Covid-19.

The megacouple announced they acquired the virus while filming down under in Australia. But Australian health officials say not so fast.

According to Australian health officials, the power couple contracted the virus in the United States before traveling to Australia.

Hanks announced that they were diagnosed with the virus while both were on location filming an upcoming biopic about Elvis Presley in Queensland, Australia.

Without naming the stars, officials from the Queensland Health department said that they believed that all the new cases, including Tom and Rita, both 63, originated outside Australia.

"At this stage we believe all seven contracted the illness outside Australia and traveled to Queensland with the virus," an official said in a press conference posted on Facebook. "They are all receiving fantastic care at hospitals throughout Queensland.

A later Facebook post stated that a 63-year-old male is "in isolation in the Gold Coast Hospital in a stable condition" having recently arrived there from the U.S., and that a female who was his traveling companion is in a similar condition in the same hospital.

Production on the Elvis biopic, in which Tom was due to play the rock legend's manager Colonel Tom Parker, has shut down - with cast and crew sent home to await instructions.

A spokesperson for the film's studio, Warner Bros., has said they are working with local health officials to identify those who may be at risk of contracting the virus.

Queensland Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk also advised those who may have come into close contact with the famously approachable stars to self-isolate and quarantine.

Hanks met Wilson in 1981 on the set of TV comedy Bosom Buddies. They were reunited in 1985 on the set of Volunteers, and they wed in 1985. Their sons Chet and Colin, who are in constant contact with their parents, have said the couple is doing well.

Actor Tom Hanks is the first A-list celebrity to test positive for the Wuhan coronavirus (Covid-19).

The 63-year-old Oscar-winning actor and his wife Rita Wilson were both diagnosed with the virus that causes potentially fatal pneumonia among the elderly population.

The Hanks have been in Australia where he is filming a forthcoming Elvis Presley biopic when they began experiencing flu-like symptoms. They both subsequently tested positive for the virus.

In a cheerful, upbeat statement that he shared on social media, Hanks wrote:

"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 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 one-day-at-a-time approach, no?"

He concluded with: "We'll keep the world posted and updated. Take care of yourselves! Hanx!"

For most healthy people, the novel coronavirus causes only mild symptoms such as cough, headache, sore throat and low-grade fever.

The virus can cause serious illness among the elderly population, particularly those with existing health problems such as heart and respiratory problems or diabetes.

So far, the 33 deaths in the US are elderly and chronically ill. The average age is 80.
