Australians are poking fun at how Tom Hanks eats his quarantine Vegemite

Last week, America’s honorary uncle Tom Hanks announced he and his wife Rita Wilson had tested positive for the coronavirus, demonstrating that not even beloved celebrities are immune from the crisis. The pair are currently isolated at Gold Coast University Hospital in Queensland, Australia, where they had been doing pre-production on Baz Luhrmann’s Elvis Presley biopic.

They are fortunately in good spirits, with Hanks tweeting that their symptoms are relatively mild. However, hundreds of Australians are now worried about the actor for an entirely different reason.

‘Life is like a tube of Vegemite. Don’t try it all at once.’
