After recovering from the corona virus, seasoned actor Tom Hanks and his wife Rita Wilson have now offered their blood to help develop a vaccine against the corona virus.
They were the first celebrities to show that they tested positive for coronavirus last month.
Last week, the couple volunteered to donate blood and plasma to coronavirus research.
"Many of the questions (are) what we are doing now? Is there anything we can do? And in fact we just found out that we are carrying the antibodies," Variety Hanks quoted for a podcast.
The 63-year-old added: "We were not only addressed, but also said: Do you want our blood? Can we give plasma?"
The actor with a good sense of humor also jokingly mentioned the name he would like to give if a blood vaccine is used to make a coronavirus vaccine.
"In fact, we will now give places to those who hope to work on what I would call Hank-ccine," added the Oscar winner.
Earlier, Wilson confirmed that while she and Hanks were unsure of where or by whom they were infected with the virus, they had learned that they were both "simultaneously" exposed to the virus.
The singer & # 39; & # 39; New Girl & # 39; & # 39; and Hanks were in Australia when their novel virus tests were positive.
Hanks had been down in the country to shoot an upcoming Elvis biopic before director Baz Luhrmann stopped filming.
The Forrest Gump actor recently explained how different the symptoms were for the couple, saying that his wife had been through a harder time than he.
