While in quarantine, Hanks and Wilson have been active on their social media accounts. Hanks shared an image of his stuffed kangaroo holding an Australian flag along with toast with an overabundance of Vegemite on it. Meanwhile, Wilson revealed that she will be focusing on songwriting and even created her own "Rita Wilson's Quarantunes" Spotify playlist.
