Tom Hanks caused concern among his fans earlier this month as he seemed to be struggling to contain his trembling hands.
The 65-year-old girl is in the midst of an advertising whirlwind for the biopic Base Luhrmann about Elvis, in which Hanks will play the singer’s manager.
The Sydney-born Luhrmann hosted the Australian premiere in the Gold Coast, 50 miles south of Brisbane, where the filming took place.
30-year-old Austin Butler, who plays King, was at the event on June 4 with Hanks.
“There’s no better place in the world to make movies than here on the Gold Coast,” he said, holding a microphone in his right hand and his left in his pocket.

“I made films in Morocco and Los Angeles, New York, Seattle and Berlin.
“None of them have what’s in the Gold Coast, and what is it? Two words. None of these other cities have Dan Murphy, ”he said, referring to Dan Murphy’s chain of liquor stores.
“What a man I knew well,” he said in applause.
As his hand trembled, Hanks tried to control it by placing his left hand at the bottom of the microphone, under his right.
He also tried to get out of hand for a while.

However, the audience did not notice it, as Hanks pleased them, saying: “We had a great time with all of you.
“There is something in the people and places of the Gold Coast that makes everyone walk with a confident look on their face. We were part of it.
“Your confidence, joy and passion for life permeate our film.”
He added: “You have a wonderful enterprising golden son at Base Luhrmann who loves Australia more than a kangaroo, more than Dan Murphy.”
Hanks played a great World War II soldier with PTSD in the movie “Saving Private Ryan,” whose hands trembled noticeably because of the tremendous stress he endured.
At one point, Hanks’ hero, Captain Miller, tells Sergeant Horvat that the tremor is “coming and going.”
Horvath replies, “You may have to take up a new direction. It seems that this one no longer agrees with you.

After the Prime Minister of Australia Hanks returned to the United States, where on June 11 the film was shown in Graceland.
“The only reason I’m here is done right,” Lisa Marie Presley said, praising Luhrmann and Butler’s interpretations of her father’s story.
“I was quite young, but I still remember my father’s energy and his mood.
– And Austin, he – what kind of word? He nailed it.
She said Butler’s success in the role was a contrast to Elvis ’previous attempts on screen.
“In my life, it was one disappointment after another, in terms of the people who paint my father.
“Bless their hearts, I’m sure they had good intentions.”
