CONTAGION STARS REUNITE FOR CORONAVIRUS PSAs: Kate Winslet, Matt Damon and other stars of the 2011 hit Contagion have reunited (virtually) to share important info about the coronavirus pandemic. Winslet says: “In the movie Contagion, I played an epidemiologist trying to stop the spread of a hypothetical virus. To prepare for the role, I spent time with some of the best public health professionals in the world.” She continues: “And what was one of the most important things they taught me?” she continues. “Wash your hands like your life depends on it because right now, in particular, it just might. Or the life of someone you love, or even the life of someone you might not know but is still deserving of your consideration. Like the people on the front lines of this fight right now, the doctors and the healthcare providers, the people who are still working in the grocery stores or delivering food to your homes, which is where you should be right now.”
