On Thursday night Jimmy Kimmel Live showed a special at-home episode and interviewed medical worker, Kimball Fairbanks about her role in the ongoing Coronavirus crisis. Fairbanks is a nurse who is currently furloughed from her role after contracting Covid-19. She has two daughters, aged 4 and 18 months old and is currently quarantined.
In the middle of her interview Kimmel told her, "We wanted to cheer you up a little bit, so I’d like you to meet somebody. Her name is Jennifer," as Jennifer Aniston suddenly appeared in the split-screen video call with Fairbanks.
"Hi, honey, it’s so good to meet you," Aniston said. "I just have to say, God bless you and all of you that are out there doing what you’re doing. 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."
Fairbanks, looking very shocked, told her, "Well, thank you, I really appreciate that." Before, Aniston then surprised Fairbanks further by gifting her a $10,000 gift card courtesy of food delivery service Postmates.
Aniston then told the show how she was managing self-isolation, "The most challenging thing is watching news and trying to digest [what's] going on out there,” she said. “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."
She also mentioned that she had been clearing out her clothes, saying, "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. Thirty more days! I’ve got to pace myself."
Imagine being a famous person and having more than one wardrobe of clothes?
