TOM HANKS SAID HE REFUSED JEFF BEZOS’ OFFER TO GO TO SPACE

Olivia Dejonge plays Butler’s on-screen wife, Priscilla Presley. “Elvis” hits theaters on June 24 before debuting on HBO Max in August.

Butler was hospitalized the day after Baz Luhrmann’s musical biopic ended. The actor told GQ Magazine that he caught a virus that simulated appendicitis and was bedridden for a week.

“The next day [after filming wrapped] I woke up at 4 a.m. in excruciating pain and was rushed to the hospital,” Butler told the outlet. “My body started to shut down the day after the end of Elvis”.

Hanks recently made headlines by photobombing a bride on her wedding day in March.

The ‘Forrest Gump’ star took part in a wedding photoshoot outside the Fairmont Hotel in Pittsburgh. Grace Gwaltney, the bride, revealed she was “shocked” to see Hanks.

Gwaltney told KCRA, “He was like, ‘Hey! I’m Tom Hanks. I’d love to take a picture with you,’ and I immediately froze and just looked around. I didn’t know not what to do.”

The bride’s wedding photographer, Rachel Rowland, also detailed the encounter at KCRA.

“We all lost it,” Rowland said. “The bridesmaids got out of the limo, he posed with pictures and congratulated everyone, then as quickly as he arrived he left. It was so cute and fun!”

Hanks was in Pittsburgh filming his movie “A Man Called Otto.” The Sony production has a Christmas Day release date.
