With the news that Tom Hanks and his wife Rita Wilson have been diagnosed with the COVID-19 virus while filming a movie in Queensland, media outlets have been falling over each other to try and get an interview with the star.

Luckily for Mix 102.3, Erin Phillips has some pretty impressive connections back in the US.

She pulled some strings and was able to organise a TOTALLY EXCLUSIVE, ONE-ON-ONE sitdown with Tom Hanks.

For some reason, Hanks seemed intent on only talking in quotes from his movies, which was odd.

You can listen to the full chat (which was absolutely not cobbled together using quotes from Forrest Gump and dodgy Tom Hanks impressions) here:
