Gwyneth Paltrow made a joke about her past role in the deadly virus film Contagion as she shared a photograph of herself headed to Europe with a mask covering her mouth.

The 2011 movie by Steven Soderbergh, about a fast-moving mystery virus that kills tens of millions of people worldwide, has found increased popularity since the outbreak of coronavirus.

En route to Paris. Paranoid? Prudent? Panicked? Placid? Pandemic? Propaganda? Paltrow’s just going to go ahead and sleep with this thing on the plane. I’ve already been in this movie. Stay safe. Don’t shake hands. Wash hands frequently. 😷

Paltrow played patient zero, who contracted the virus from a chef in Hong Kong who had handled a slaughtered pig that had been infected by a bat.

Sharing a photograph of herself on the plane wearing a black eye mask and an Airinum air mask, the actor and wellness entrepreneur wrote: “En route to Paris. Paranoid? Prudent? Panicked? Placid? Pandemic? Propaganda?

“Paltrow’s just going to go ahead and sleep with this thing on the plane.

“I’ve already been in this movie. Stay safe. Don’t shake hands. Wash hands frequently.”
