Jennifer Aniston Says Because She's "An Agoraphobe" Staying Home Has Been Easier For Her
During a recent talk show appearance, Jennifer Aniston opened up about how self-isolation is going for her! Find out why the actress isn't finding it too difficult!
Jennifer Aniston really doesn't mind having to stay at home! On Thursday's episode of Jimmy Kimmel Live!, which was recorded from Kimmel's home, Aniston checked in with the talk show host to talk about how quarantine is going for her. Surprisingly, she shared that she hasn't been having that hard of a time with her current situation!
When Kimmel asked her how long it had been since she had last left her house, Aniston revealed that she's now been staying at home for 3 whole weeks! "I’m a born agoraphobe," Aniston said. "This is kind of a dream — not a dream, it’s obviously a nightmare. But, me personally, it’s not been that much of a challenge".
Aniston shares "most challenging thing" about self-isolation to her
Aniston may be handling the situation well overall, but she admitted to Kimmel that there is something she finds difficult about it. "The most challenging thing is watching news and trying to digest [everything] that’s going on out there," Aniston revealed. "I allow a check-in in the morning and then I’ll do a check-in in the evening, and that is it because basically, it’s regurgitating the exact same thing".
Since she's found herself with much more free time on her hands than usual, Aniston says there's one particular chore she's been enjoying... doing the dishes! She calls it "her favourite thing in the world," explaining that "not only are you doing your dishes, but you’re washing your hands" in the process.
Another thing Aniston has been doing to stay busy at home is reorganizing things. However, she admitted she went a bit overboard with it at first! "I was a crazy person the first week, and then I realized I had to pull back because I was going to run out of closets," she said. "Thirty more days! I’ve got to pace myself".
Aniston and Kimmel surprise medical worker with on-air video call
Aniston also brightened a nurse's day during her appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live! through thanking her for her service. Kimmel began the call with Utah medical worker Kimball Fairbanks before introducing her to Aniston, who appeared next to her in a split screen.
"I just have to say, God bless you and all of you that are out there doing what you’re doing," Aniston said. "I just, I don’t even know how to express my gratitude to everything that you guys are doing, putting your health at risk and all of that. You’re just phenomenal".
On top of the video call, Aniston also surprised Fairbanks with a $10,000 gift card for online food delivery service Postmates, which is sending the other nurses who work on Fairbanks' hospital floor gift cards as well.
