Tom Selleck, a reclusive Hollywood legend, was spotted out for the first time during lockdown.
The Magnum PI and Blue Bloods actor, who turned 76 on January 29, was spotted running errands near his Los Angeles neighborhood on Monday afternoon, according to DailyMail.
He dressed down in a baggy navy T-shirt, black shorts, and sneakers. He wore a face mask before removing it to enjoy the cool California breeze.
This is Selleck’s first public appearance since 2019.
Selleck tipped a waiter $2,020 and left a handwritten note to New York City restaurant servers as part of the 2020 Tip Challenge in December.
The generous tip was left on a $204.68 tab at the Italian restaurant Elio on New York City’s Upper East Side in November, according to Blue Bloods co-star Donnie Wahlberg, who revealed it on Twitter.
‘I found out that my TV Dad #TomSelleck has generously accepted the #2020TipChallenge at Elios Upper East Side!’ said Wahlberg, 51. Dad, I adore you. I didn’t start it, but I’m glad I’m a part of it. THANK YOU to everyone who contributed even a small amount extra this year.’
Wahlberg shared a photo of the receipt as well as a note he left for his server, which read, ‘I am honoring my friend Donnie Wahlberg’s tip challenge with my heartfelt hope for a better 2020.’
After taking part in the tip challenge, Wahlberg, who has previously chronicled his large tips, spoke with People about Selleck’s low-key nature.
‘We’ve done three dinner scenes since he did it,’ he said, adding that Selleck ‘never mentioned it to’ him on multiple occasions while filming the police show.
In April, Selleck told the publication that he is a “fairly private person” who has “always treasured the balance between work and time with my family,” adding, “It’s always about them.”
I knew intellectually what it would mean to be a public figure, but there’s no way to understand it until you’ve lived it. “I don’t think I’m cut out for this,” I thought.
Selleck has been married to Jillie since 1987, and they have a daughter Hannah, 32; Tom also has a son Kevin, 54, from his previous marriage to Jacqueline Ray.
‘My relationships and ranch keep me sane,’ he explained.
