Tom Hanks Shaky Hand at Elvis Premiere Raises Health Concerns

Tom Hanks has caused fears for his health after he battled to control his shaking arm at the premiere of Baz Luhrmann’s Elvis. In the new picture, Hanks, 65, plays Colonel Tom Parker, Elvis’s manager. A disturbing video has surfaced showing Hanks’ hand trembling as he speaks to the audience. Hanks, holding the microphone in his right hand, declared, “There is no greater place in the world to make a motion picture than right here on the Gold Coast.”

“I’ve made films in Morocco and Los Angeles and New York City and Seattle and Berlin. Nowhere else in the country can you find what the Gold Coast has, and what is it, exactly? In a nutshell, that’s the definition. Dan Murphy (an alcohol retailer) isn’t available in any of the other towns. Wow, what a man I had the pleasure of getting to know. At this time, Hanks’ right hand, which was holding the microphone, was visibly shaking.

He covered his right hand with his left, switched the microphone to the left hand, and jammed the right hand into his pocket. We had a fantastic day with you guys,” he concluded. “The Gold Coast is a place where you can’t help but go about with a smile on your face because of the combination of the people and the environment. Yes, we played a role in that. Your self-assurance, happiness, and enthusiasm for life are all palpable in our movie.

Baz Luhrmann, your lovely, proactive golden son, loves Australia more than kangaroos, more than Dan Murphy, and more than any other Australian. After the video of the incident went viral, viewers took to Twitter to speculate about what could have been making Hanks’ hand tremble. “God forbid it could just be adrenaline and nerves!” just one author contributed something here. “Saw him on screen lately and thought he looked slim. “I pray for his well-being,” another commented. “He does seem to have aged suddenly – lost weight,” a third person added. Diabetic, she said. Another person added, “This is what occurs when my mom has low blood sugar.”

Type 2 diabetes

Hanks, who has type 2 diabetes, has dropped a large amount of weight in recent weeks. While on The Late Show with David Letterman in 2013, he explained how his primary care physician had informed him of his diabetes diagnosis. I finally went to the doctor about my high blood sugar levels and he stated, “You know those high blood sugar readings you’ve been dealing with since you were 36? You made it through college and graduated! He informed me, “Young man, you have type 2 diabetes.

And because there’s no way I can get back to [my weight] in high school, I guess I’ll have to accept the fact that I have type 2 diabetes. After being diagnosed with diabetes, Hanks was told to reduce his weight, as he explained in a recent interview with Radio Times. He remarked, “I’m a part of the slothful American generation that just kept on dancing through the party till it ended and now we’re all sick with this disease.” That’s right, I weighed a lot. I’ve been to movies, so you can picture me. I completely blew it there. I believed I could escape it by eating my cheeseburgers without buns.


At the beginning of Elvis 2020 production, Hanks and his wife Rita Wilson developed COVID-19 and spent time in seclusion at Gold Coast University Hospital. Hanks used social media to update his followers on his and his family’s well-being. In March of 2020, Hanks posted on Instagram, “(Rita) and I want to thank everyone here Down Under who are taking such fantastic care of us.” We’ve been diagnosed with COVID-19, and hence have been quarantined.

There are some people for whom this could cause a fatal sickness. We’re just taking it day by day. “If we listen to the professionals and take care of ourselves and each other, we can make it through this, right?” The two-time Oscar winner reported feeling weary and had “body aches” with Wilson. Rita felt intermittent shivers. “Slight fevers, too,” Hanks added. We got tested for the coronavirus to play it safe, which is what the world needs right now.

Hanks noted that even after he was cured of COVID, he still suffered from some disabling side effects, such as persistent physical aches. Hanks has returned to the United States after a whirlwind of Elvis promotion down under. The Elvis film is scheduled to premiere in Australian theatres on June 23.
