Stars of 'Contagion' reunite for a PSA
NEW YORK – The stars of the 2011 virus thriller “Contagion” — a prescient film these days — have reunited for a series of public service announcements to warn about COVID-19. Matt Damon, Laurence Fishburne, Kate Winslet and Jennifer Ehle have teamed up with scientists from Columbia University's Mailman School of Public Health to offer four individual homemade videos. “Wash your hands like your life depends on it,” Winslet says in her PSA. “Because right now, in particular, it just might.”Ehle stresses that the coronavirus is novel, meaning no one is immune. “Contagion,” directed by Steven Soderbergh, explores a scenario in which a lethal and fast-moving influenza is spreading around the world.
