Hanks disclosed his first plasma donation a month ago, saying at the time that it was easy as “taking a nap.” That was after he and his wife Rita Wilson had said they were going to donate blood to help COVID-19 patients.

During his appearance on NPR’s podcast Wait Wait … Don’t Tell Me!, Hanks had stated that he and his wife learned that they had the anti-bodies after recovering from coronavirus.
