Actor Tom Hanks and his wife, Rita Wilson, announced via Twitter on Wednesday that they both tested positive for COVID-19 while in Australia filming for one of Hanks' movies.
They've been in recovery since then, making a Spotify playlist and sharing updates on social media.
On Sunday, Hanks shared a picture on Twitter of toast covered in popular Australian spread Vegemite, which is savory and has a famously acquired taste.
Fans and followers from Australia were quick to poke fun at the actor for the excessive amount of Vegemite he used.
On Sunday, Hanks shared a photo on Twitter of two pieces of toast covered in Vegemite, the iconic savory spread loved by Australians. Vegemite is said to have a notably strong flavor and, similar to something like black coffee, is an acquired taste.
In his tweet, Hanks wrote: "Thanks to the Helpers. Let's take care of ourselves and each other."

The "Forrest Gump" actor's Vegemite-spreading method wasn't met with approval by native Australians, according to tweets sent in response to his food picture.

Some people even shared graphics with Hanks that showed what many Australians apparently consider to be socially acceptable amounts of Vegemite.
