Tom Hanks Heartfelt Letter To An Australian Boy Named Corona

Hollywood star Tom Hanks pens a heartfelt letter to an Australian boy who was bullied by his friends over his name - Corona. The eight-year-old kid, first wrote to Hanks, asking the actor about his and Wilson's health. He then revealed that he loved his name but people in his school are calling him coronavirus, which makes him sad and angry. In the letter, Hanks wrote, "Your letter made my wife and I feel so wonderful! Thank you for being such a good friend - friends make friends feel good when they are down. Even though I was no longer sick, getting your letter made me feel even better. You know, you are the only person I've ever known to have the name Corona like the ring around the sun, a crown. Along with the letter, Hanks also sent a gift to the boy -- a Corona-brand typewriter, which he used when he was in quarantine in Australia. Tom and his wife, Rita Wilson, were among the Hollywood celebrities who were diagnosed with the coronavirus.
