Fans have become increasingly worried about Hanks’ health after video appeared to show him visibly shaking while promoting his new Elvis Presley biopic.
During a June 4 promotional event for the film, Hanks was on stage celebrating the production of the movie, holding a microphone in his right hand while his left hand was kept in his pocket.
“There is no better place in the world to make a motion picture than right here on the Gold Coast,” Hanks said as his arm trembled, according to the Daily Mail.
