Jim Parsons shared The Tonight Show starring Jimmy Fallon that he and his husband Todd Spievac had agreed with COVID-19 back in March.
On Monday night, Parsons told Fallon about his experience with the coronavirus.
“We didn’t know what it was, we knew we had colds and we lost all sense of smell and taste.” Hollywood the actor told Fallon. “This contradicted the descriptions for me, I didn’t realize how taste and smell could disappear.”
After describing his time when he learned of his diagnosis, Parsons said he and his partner grieved that they could not taste any food at home as eating became more of a favorite pastime during the pandemic. The conversation then turned to the two TV stars, discussing what occupied them during the quarantine.
Parsons said he took classes in creative writing and hair bleaching, the last of which Fallon also did, albeit years ago.
Fallon then noted that the last time Parsons appeared on the show, he was still acting on The Big Bang Theory. When asked what life was like after the show, Parsons likened it to death.
It reminds me when someone has died or died and for a moment feels so monumental and you think it will never end after nine months and you are like “life goes on”
