Hollywood legend Tom Hanks has posted a photo of himself and wife Rita Wilson wearing peaked caps as they recover from coronavirus in isolation on the Gold Coast.

The Oscar-winning actor looked sombre while Wilson was smiling as he assured fans and friends on Twitter that the couple is doing fine and wanted "to thank everyone here Down Under".

"There are things we can all do to get through this by following the advice of experts and taking care of ourselves and each other, no? Remember, despite all the current events, there is no crying in baseball. Hanx".

Hanks tweeted on Thursday that he and Wilson were in hospital on the Gold Coast after contracting the coronavirus.

The 63-year-old star is in Queensland for the untitled Baz Luhrmann-biopic on Elvis Presley. He's playing the role of the star's manager Colonel Tom Parker.

Singer-songwriter Wilson performed at the ballroom of the Emporium Hotel South Bank in Brisbane last Thursday, while their son Truman was in the audience.

She then performed at the Sydney Opera House on Saturday night.

Production has temporarily ceased on the big budget untitled Elvis movie at Village Roadshow's Gold Coast studios.
