A Bored Ellen DeGeneres Cold-Calling Her Celebrity Friends Is All of Us at Home Right Now
Like most of us, Ellen DeGeneres is social distancing amid the global outbreak of coronavirus (COVID-19). Unlike most of us, she has a phonebook filled with celebrity contacts to call whenever she damn well pleases.
But regardless of how many famous friends and square feet she has at her disposable, DeGeneres is still feeling the itch of boredom during her self-quarantine. In order to cope, she started cold-calling some of her A-list contacts (some of whom did not appear to have her number in their address book).
DeGeneres, sprawling across her couch in sweats, paid a virtual visit to Adam Levine, who was celebrating his birthday with his “wonderful family,” and admittedly “doing nothing.”
Next, she checked in with Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel, who were similarly consumed by, uh, “nothing.”
John Legend and Chrissy Teigen were also doing “nothing,” but they were doing so with their kids (Luna, 3, and Miles, 22 months). “I wish I had kids right now, I’m so bored,” DeGeneres told the couple. But, alas, having toddlers doesn’t solve the problem. “We’re bored too,” Legend told her. “We’re super bored,” Teigen echoed.
Stars, they’re just like us: SUPER BORED.
