Hollywood suffered a mass exodus last year as swarms of celebrities fled Down Under to avoid the ravages of coronavirus.
And on Sunday, A-list actors Sacha Baron Cohen, 49, and Natalie Portman, 39, enjoyed the perks of living in a largely coronavirus-free zone as they set sail on Sydney Harbour.
The famous duo, who both relocated to Australia with their families late last year, were spotted relaxing on a yacht with their respective children.
