While more than a dozen celebrities threatened to leave the country if Donald Trump was elected president, now that he’s actually been elected, actor Tom Hanks has a simple message for all of America: Keep calm and carry on.

During an acceptance speech Tuesday at the Museum of Modern Art in New York City, Hanks shared his words of wisdom to a crowd that included a slew of celebrities.

“We are going to be all right. America has been in worst places than we are at right now,” Hanks said.

“In my own lifetime, our streets were in chaos, our generations were fighting each other tooth and nail, and every dinner table ended up being as close to a fist fight as our families would allow,” he added. “We have been in a place where we looked at our leaders and wondered what the hell were they thinking of? We’ve had moments with administrations and politicians and leaders and senators and governors where we asked ourselves, Are they lying to us? Or do they really believe in this? That’s all right.”
