Tom Hanks was recently in Australia to attend a special premiere of his new film ‘Elvis’ which stars the 30-year-old Austin Butler in a lead role. The Hollywood biggie attended the event that was arranged by the movie’s director Baz Luhrmann. While addressing the live audience, Tom Hanks sparked concern amongst his fans as he appeared to struggle to control the shaking of his hands.

The ’Cast Away’ star, who will be seen playing the role of Elvis’ manager in the film, is currently in the middle of promoting his latest flick. At an event in Australia, the 65-year-old actor shared, “There is no better place in the world to make a motion picture than right here on the Gold Coast” while holding the microphone in his right hand, and left hand in his pocket.

Is Tom Hanks OK?

While speaking at the event, Tom Hanks stated, “I've shot films in Morocco and Los Angeles and New York City and Seattle and in Berlin. None of them have what the Gold Coast have, and what is that? Two words. None of those other cities have Dan Murphy” referencing the chain of liquor stores, Dan Murphy's. Whilst speaking, Tom Hanks’ hands appeared to be shaking as he tried to control it by placing his left hand at the bottom of the microphone, below his right, as reported by The Daily Mail.

According to the publication, the award-winning star also briefly attempted to switch hands. While the live audience may have not noticed his hands shaking but the Internet was quick to react on the news. Many on Twitter recalled how the actor’s character in his movie ‘Saving Private Ryan’ had the same issue. Tom Hanks famously played a Second World War soldier with PTSD in ‘Saving Private Ryan’, whose hands visibly shook due to the immense stress he had endured.


‘That’s his hand acting trick. He does it in Saving Private Ryan’

Speaking about Tom Hanks’ health, one user stated, “Unable to control shaking huh? Didn't that happen to Killary? Merkel? Could it be withdrawals from something? Hell, just spit balling here.  Shake away.” Another user tweeted, “Another poorly celeb.  Will he blame his condition on his rona infection in 2020?” One posted, “It is extremely unkind to speculate on Tom's health. Tom has a Loving Wife & Family thus they will make him rest if it's due to tiredness or any other issues.”  Meanwhile, an individual asserted, “That's been happening since before he went ashore on D-day.” Whereas, one shared, “That’s his hand acting trick. He does it in saving private Ryan.” One person added, “May be familial tremors. I can sympathize if it is” as another concluded, “Pretty weird considering his character had the same issue in Saving Private Ryan.”
