The coronavirus seems to have become a social leveller. The pandemic has just affected not only the ordinary commoner but also the café society and the world of tinsel and glitter, Hollywood.


Events are being cancelled while movie releases have been postponed.

The virus fears have also turbocharged anxieties.


The former wife of Sylvester Stallone, "Rocky IV" actress Brigitte Nielsen, is a bundle of nerves: she fears for her sons, who are in Milan and have run out of food in the wake of the nationwide lockdown amid the panic over the coronavirus, declared by WHO as a pandemic.

The actress, popular among many new-generation viewers as Ludmilla Drago in "Creed II", cited details during a recent TV appearance, reports

"I speak to my children every day. They are in Milan, and they are in the area where it's more dangerous. My younger son had to go out to the supermarket and get food. There is no more food," said the 56-year-old Danish actress.

The former wife of Hollywood star Sylvester Stallone compared the situation in the US, where she lives, to Italy.

"Here in America, they are looking for toilet paper. In Italy, they are looking for food. There is a panic, not only (about) getting the virus but the fact that there is nothing to be eaten and there is no clean water," she said.

While assuring others that her children are fine despite the circumstances, she said: "It is a very, very difficult situation for them because they are scared. It's pretty scary when you're young and it's hard for me as a mom to be on the other side of the planet. I said, 'You cannot come over for Easter.' Now they definitely cannot come over because [of] the entire lockdown."

During the talk, the "Red Sonja" actress sent message to Americans on how they should handle the situation should worse things happen.

Nielsen shares two sons, 26-year-old Aaron and 24-year-old Raoul Jr. with former-husband Raoul Meyer. She also has a 35-year-old son Julian with first husband Kasper Winding, and a 30-year-old son Killian with ex-fiance Mark Gastineau.

From her current husband Mattia Dessi, she has a one-year-old daughter named Frida.
