The 42-year-old The Eternals actor showed off his buff biceps in a tight, white T-shirt as he enjoyed a little break from his quarantine with the 40-year-old screenwriter.

Kumail and his wife Emily soaked up some fresh air while going for a walk around their neighborhood in Beverly Hills.

A few days before, Kumail took to his Instagram to share some thoughts about walking during social distancing: “Walked around an empty Beverly Hills yesterday. It was eerie. (Yes my eyes are closed in the picture. I was trying to picture normalcy),” he said. “(And yes in LA you are allowed to go on walks as long as you stay 6 feet away from people. As you can see, that was not a problem here. In fact, WHO’s official recommendations on how to deal with coronavirus include: go on walks while practicing social distancing.)”

It was recently announced that Kumail and Issa Rae‘s new movie The Lovebirds will now be released on this streaming site instead of hitting theaters.
