Heartwarming Celebrity Messages During Coronavirus Lockdown

Heartwarming Celebrity Messages During Coronavirus Lockdown

If COVID-19 is making you feel stressed and anxious, we’ve rounded up some of the most uplifting and heartwarming messages from celebrities about coronavirus to help you feel positive.

Tom Hanks

After testing positive for coronavirus, Tom Hanks has been keeping his fans updated via social media. In previous years the actor has been spotted on board 138-metre superyacht Rising Sun, but he and his wife are now confined to their Australian quarantine quarters.

Taylor Swift

Songstress Taylor Swift has frequently been spotted aboard a superyacht, including the 53 metre Mizu. She shared this heartwarming picture of her cat Meredith, urging her followers to "be like Meredith" for whom "self quarantining is a way of life."

Priyanka Chopra Jonas

The Bollywood star, who was spotted on a yacht with the Jonas Brothers last summer, has been sharing messages of positivity and coronavirus advice on Instagram. In the caption for this post Priyanka addressed the issue of stockpiling and wrote: "There are so many other things to stock up on right now. Please look out for each other and the people who are most at risk for COVID-19".

Elton John

The musician used the #istayhomefor hashtag to show that he was staying inside for families and friends at risk, and in doing so helping to prevent the spread of the virus.

Diane von Fürstenberg

Fashion designer and superyacht owner Diane von Fürstenberg shared an inspirational fact on her Instagram to help her followers avoid boredom while quarantined at home.

Matthew McConaughey

Delivered in his unmistakable southern drawl, actor Matthew McConaughey shared a message of hope and unity to his fans with this video from his home.

Olga Kurylenko

Ex bond girl Olga Kurylenko, who spent plenty of time on board boats while filming Quantum of Solace, was another confirmed coronavirus case. Kurylenko assured her followers: "I have completely recovered. To recapitulate: For one week I felt pretty bad and was mostly in bed, sleeping, with high fever and strong headache. The second week, the fever was gone but some light cough appeared and I felt very tired. By the end of the second week I felt totally fine."

Naomi Watts

Actress Naomi Watts, who previously spent time on a classic Riva yacht, shared a fun video demonstrating her cooking skills while in isolation (accompanied by her dog as sous-chef).

Kevin Hart

Comedian Kevin Hart spread positivity to his followers with this uplifting message.

Karlie Kloss

As well as being a supermodel, Karlie Kloss is also a celebrity who supports ocean conservation. She shared this message to her followers hoping to ease feelings of stress and anxiety at this difficult time.

Miley Cyrus

Singer Miley Cyrus posted this uplifting piece of news to remind her followers of the positive action being taken by those in power right now.

Dame Judi Dench

British National Treasure Dame Judi Dench was filmed joking around in a dog hat and urged viewers to "just keep laughing" to get themselves through this tricky time.

Alexandra Daddario

To offer followers a little perspective, actress Alexandra Daddario reminded her fans that they should follow their pets example.

Justin Bieber

Singer Justin Bieber and his model wife Hailey Baldwin have both spent their fair share of time on superyachts. For now though, they are staying inside and reminding their fans to do the same with this moving Instagram post.

Greta Thunberg

Teenage climate activist Greta Thunberg, who made headlines when she crossed the Atlantic on board Malizia II, reminded followers that "in a crisis we change our behaviour and adapt to the new circumstances for the greater good of society". Her #fridaysforfuture strikes are now being held online. Despite having experienced symptoms of COVID-19 herself in the past weeks, Thunberg has now recovered.

Kourtney Kardashian

Mother of three Kourtney Kardashian is probably busy homeschooling her children while schools are closed, but to liven the mood she posted this jovial picture captioned "I’m the homeschool PE teacher".
