Over the weekend, Tom Hanks and Rita Wilson arrived in Los Angeles from Australia after staying there an additional two weeks to self-quarantine after being tested positive for COVID-19. They were initially there so Hanks could film for the upcoming Elvis Presley biopic he will be starring in.

The couple frequently updated social media regarding their conditions and they were very positive about their circumstances. Wilson took to Instagram to post her singing her "Broken Man" song and even rapped to Naughty By Nature's "Hip Hop Hooray." She also had her own quarantine playlist.

"One year ago on March 29, I was honored with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, a street, that as a child, I’d walk on an read all the names of the stars I admired, never believing one day my name would be on one of those stars. And one year ago today, I released my fourth album, Halfway to Home. Every day I get to make music is a gift. So much has happened musically in that one year. So much goodness. All of this would not be possible without good health."

Wilson also released her fourth studio album, 'Halfway To Home' on March 29 a year ago. She released her first album, 'AM/FM' back in May of 2012.
