Hollywood suffered a mass exodus last year as swarms of celebrities fled Down Under to avoid the ravages of Covid-19.

And on Sunday, actors Sacha Baron Cohen and Natalie Portman 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.

They were joined by the cast of the upcoming film adaption of Carmen – including Paul Mescal, Rossy De Palma and Melissa Barrera – as well as Natalie’s husband, Benjamin Millepied, who is directing Carmen.

Sacha’s wife Isla Fisher didn’t appear to be in attendance. 

Natalie, 39, enjoyed a friendly conversation with Sacha, 49, and her husband, as the stars of Carmen chatted among themselves on the lower deck.

Natalie looked effortlessly stylish for her seafaring outing, donning a black long-sleeved jumper and dark blue jeans.  

She went makeup-free for the low-key occasion and threw her dark tresses back into a messy chignon. 

Meanwhile a decidedly windblown Sacha showed off his flare for fashion by wearing a floral-printed button-up shirt and blue shorts.

Natalie has previously spoken about how quickly her children have adjusted to the Australian way of life since they moved Down Under from the US in September. 

Last month, Natalie appeared via a cross on Jimmy Kimmel Live and revealed that her children have started using the local language while living Down Under. 

Jimmy had asked if Natalie’s son Aleph, nine, and daughter Amalia were picking up an Australian accent.

‘More words,’ Natalie revealed. 

‘When you want something, they say lollies instead of candy, tomato sauce instead of ketchup. When you want what you want, you gotta say it like the locals,’ she told Jimmy.

‘I’d like some tomato sauce with my chips,’ Natalie said with a slight Australian accent.

Like Natalie, Sacha and Isla relocated to Australia late last year and have since enrolled their three children at a school in Sydney. 

Sacha and Isla are rumoured to have fled the bright lights of Hollywood not only because of COVID-19, but also to avoid the Trump administration. 

‘They didn’t want to raise their kids in Trump’s America,’ an insider recently told Sydney Morning Herald of the couple’s decision to move to Australia.
