1. They’re binge-watching TV shows
Just like us mere mortals, Courtney Cox revealed that she’d be spending her time in self-isolation binge-watching the legendary day-time sitcom Friends, which she was actually a part of. She mentioned on Jimmy Kimmel’s online Quarantine Minilogue
that she does not even remember being on the show! What blasphemy! She also spoke about the reunion being pushed back and how staying indoors was making her anxious and angry.
2. They’re also having Zoom reunions, hopefully with better connection
Just like the movie High School Musical portrayed a better school-life than yours, they also did a reunion better than you could have! The cast got together with the entire Disney family to belt out a fun rendition of the song “We’re all in this Together.” But as reunions go, someone had to be missing and here it was Zac Efron, which led to quite a bit of debate online!
3. Seriously, thank God for FaceTime
Even Ariana Grande hosted a reunion for the 10-year anniversary of 2010’s hit Nickelodeon show, Victorious
. She then shared a screenshot of her and nine of her castmates who tuned into the meeting on Instagram and captioned the picture “happy.” How cute right? And while we’re on the topic of reunions, can we also have a Victorious reunion episode then?
5. And they are Tik-Toking because they’re bored
Britney Spears has been really cool during this pandemic as she gave out the perfect advice to stay safe and communicate, meditate, and workout. She even posted a clip on Instagram of herself bopping to music, calling it her version of TikTok or Snapchat or the latest cool thing. Yes, she’s doing it in a mansion but if you haven’t been tempted to give it a go, you’re lying!
6. Super-duper bored!
There are those who haven't uploaded some really weird stuff online just out of sheer boredom but Madonna isn’t one of them! The pop queen and diva has taken to social media to upload some really really weird stuff online! From bathing in rose petals (because who does not do that, right?) to doing this little weird remix about fried fish and being out of pasta!
7. But, they’re dancing the blues away
Being stuck at home mostly means running out of things to do but settling into our new reality does not have to be sad — Little Mix’s Perrie Edwards truly believes that! She, in fact, decided to have a little fun at home and shared this video of her dancing to some tunes which, let’s be honest, we’re all doing! So, yeah same!
8. Some of them are meditating
Our mental health has taken a major hit during this lockdown and celebrities are no different in this case. On March 13th, Lizzo posted a thirty-minute video on Instagram where she gave us an amazing mantra and tune to meditate to, simply because she loves us so. The video has since been viewed almost 3 million times — a true icon and queen.
10. And they’re finding a way to make meditation entertaining
Another one of the bunch who has been the most relatable during this entire pandemic is Leslie Jordan. The actor has been self-isolating with his mother and posts hilarious stories and videos to his Instagram platform, from intense pillow talk to watching workout videos. One of the most iconic ones is him meditating on his kitchen counter which screams lawful chaotic all over!
11. They’re definitely washing their hands
One thing celebrities and we have in common these days is we’re all washing our hands constantly. Take Hugh Jackman for example. Uploaded to his profile on Instagram, a short video showed the former X-man demonstrating how to wash your hands. He also told everyone to turn the water off while getting your hands squeaky clean, concluding with a “wash your hands but don’t keep the tap running” PSA.
12. Even their kids are washing their hands
Also, when Mariah Carey stayed indoors because she not only cared for her health and safety but also for the healthcare workers who are stressed, overburdened, and fighting on the frontlines. She posted a video of her doing a rendition of “Fly Like A Bird” on Easter to keep our spirits up and even shared some snaps from her birthday celebrations!
13. They’re picking up old hobbies and gaining new ones
A whole lot of us are finally using this time and getting around to those dusty books lying on the shelf that we promised we would read in 2019 and Sir Patrick Stewart has the same idea. Much to our delight, he has been diligently posting videos of himself reading Shakespeare’s sonnets. The first one was released on March 22nd and has since become a daily ritual for many.
14. Some of them are busy reading us bed-time stories to help maintain our sanity
Josh Gad has also been catching up on his reading under the #GadBookClub where he reads books by different writers and the one he read yesterday was titled I’m Bored. These sessions are honestly the best because they’re therapeutic and just what we need. He also voices out the different characters which is honestly the best thing ever! Okay, BRB, going to cry while we watch this on loop!
15. A whole lot of them are singing
Most of us stick only to bathroom singing, but thankfully for us, a whole bunch of celebrities have taken to social media platforms to croon their hearts out! This trend began when Chris Martin performed live to raise awareness and funds with Global Citizen and the WHO. Nothing can be more relaxing and fun than a little bit of at-home karaoke!
16. Plus, they’re busy doing online concerts
Joining Chris Martin was John Legend, who emphasized on the importance of social distancing and proceeded to do an hour-long sing-song session with his wife Chrissy Teigen by his side. Chrissy Teigen is the embodiment of literally all of us as she hangs out in a towel throughout the video! It’s going to be difficult getting back into real adult clothes once this gets over!!
17. They are getting those workouts in
Who better to inspire fitness goals than Chris Hemsworth? Staying fit and sane is a necessity during this
period and his health and fitness program that will last for six weeks sure is helping us! The Thor star shared the news via a short video on Instagram and wrote about how we needed to focus on living healthier and happier!
18. They’re reposting and sharing cutesy videos on social media
Gerard Butler, much like we would, reshared a thirty-six-second video of a wee Scottish granny asking everyone to stay indoors. He captioned the awww-worthy video with the words “Sending gratitude, love and respect to all of the doctors, nurses, caretakers and everyone on the front lines around the globe. Take care and have a listen to what this lovely Scottish lady has to say.”
19. Some of them started their own talk-shows (very casually)
Some celebrities actually took the time to start their own TV show and not a pretend one in the shower. (Feel attacked?) The Office
-favorite John Krasinski began hosting his own show titled Some Good News
and hosted an online prom for every student who was missing out on theirs and even got The Jonas Brother, Chance the Rapper, and Billie Eilish to perform, all while in his shorts!
20. Others decided to educate the masses by spitting facts
Steve Carell has always been a funnyman and there’s no reason for that to change. He even retweeted this hilarious video of Michael Scott that 30 by 30 titled “What if I told you, the greatest Michael wasn't Jordan?” And he was not lying, he was simply spitting straight facts as he, in turn, captioned the video “Dinkin’ flicka” because truly, that’s life!
21. Some took this as an opportunity to hang out with their fur babies
Some celebrities chose to hang out with their four-legged babies. For starters, we had Glenn Close who has embodied lawful good throughout this entire pandemic. She posted this video to Instagram and spoke about how it’s going to be difficult sticking to our schedule and then just went prfffttt!! She captioned it with — “I’ll finish my thoughts after Pip and I have had something to eat!!!! Love to all.”
22. Some gave out important PSAs
Arnold Schwarzenegger was one of the first ones to post a video of him with his beloved fur babies. The PSA featured his two loves, Whiskey and Lulu, and zero minced words. The caption was “Stay at home. Stay at home as much as possible. Listen to the experts, ignore the morons (foreheads). We will get through this together.” Can’t say we fault him!
23. A few more pet-lovers for you and the world to love
Chris Evans is not just a superhero on-screen but also in our hearts! He has been a strong advocate of social isolation and distancing since the very beginning and he’s been using these weeks to spend some quality time with his little buddy Dodger. Don’t believe us? Here's what the star posted to his twitter recently with the caption “Two seconds later he full-body sneezed directly into my face.”
24. Even Ellen Degerenes hung out on a large couch with her pets
Ellen Degeneres makes another appearance on this list since the talk-show host has managed to keep so busy during the quarantine by spam calling, solving jigsaw puzzles, and making memes. She’s also set aside time for her pets and this cute little picture is proof! She captioned it with a cheeky “This is how we Saturday.” To which we say, this is how we everyday!
25. Some got their partners to cook for them
Many of us are in-isolation with our partners and so is Sophie Turner. She and Joe Jonas have already proven to be the cutest couple ever but what we’re about to tell you takes the cake. Joe's been cooking her delicious meals as evinced by this cute picture captioned, “One of the many benefits of marrying a good italian boy... @joejonas ???????????? Also please may I have my hat back!!”
26. Others tried their hand at cooking
On the other hand, there are some of us who are cooking at home for ourselves, including celebrities such as Florence Pugh. The Midsommar
actress shared her recipe for a delicious butternut squash soup. As a plus, the dish requires some intense stirring action that doubles as an anti-anxiety therapy. You can find the video on her Instagram highlights, so get to cooking!
27. Some tried their best to share accurate information
In this whole mess, we’re all trying to not only stay informed but also stay accurately so. This means it’s not too much of a leap that a celebrity would want the same for themselves and their fans. Priyanka Chopra Jonas did her bit to pass on the right information as she did a fifteen-minute session with WHO to raise awareness about what can be done to keep ourselves safe!
28. Some did not mince their words when it came to asking people to stay indoors
It should not have been a thing in this scenario, but many people tend to take all kinds of advice only from celebrities. What we need right now is to stay indoors and pop queen Ariana Grande minced no words when it came to asking people to quarantine and self-isolate to avoid putting other people at risk. Seriously, your hip hop yoga class can wait, Karen. Thank you, next!
29. Some stepped out to get groceries but ensured they followed all the rules
Not all have the privilege to stay indoors and that is on period. Gwyneth Paltrow, much like some, has been leaving her home to get groceries, but most importantly, has been doing so while following the rules of distancing. Donning a mask and gloves, she stepped out to the local farmers market to get essentials and urged people to stay indoors unless absolutely necessary!

@bradfalchuk and I were grateful to learn our local farmers market was open this morning; we walked there (keeping lots of distance) and donned masks and gloves once we got nearer to the market, only taking them off when we were almost home and there were no other pedestrians in close proximity. Yesterday I heard tales of crowded hiking trails and parks. Although we are all on a learning curve and aren’t always perfect as we figure out this temporary new normal, we must take the orders seriously and not abuse the freedoms we still have; grocery store and essential errand runs, bike rides or walks (being disciplined about correct protocol). It’s not the time for denial. We must take this seriously and shelter in place. It’s time for nesting, reading, cleaning out closets, doing something you’ve always wanted to do (write a book, learn an instrument or a language or learn to code online, draw or paint) going through photos, cooking, and reconnecting on a deeper level with the people you love. I find hope in the generosity, love, protection and care I see and feel through out our country everyday and my heart goes out to everyone directly affected or simply in fear. We will get through and I bet you our humanity will shine like never before ❤️
30. Rita Wilson made a badass playlist on Spotify
On the other hand, his wife Rita Wilson did the most millennial thing ever! Clearly bored out of her mind, she made a playlist called Quarantunes while she and her husband, Tom Hanks, had to spend time in quarantine while they received treatment for COVID-19. The playlist contains some serious bops such as songs from The Cranberries, Destiny’s Child, Akon and more! Watch us bop to it too!
31. A few are just trying to stay busy
No one said that self-isolation and distancing was going to be easy but no one told us it would be this difficult. Some of us are struggling to sit still and one of those people is Julliane Moore. The Still Alice
actress shared a snap of her with a vacuum outside and spoke about how she’s just keeping herself busy inside and outside wherever she’s needed.
32. Others are well… trying
Have you tried your 455th face mask, pretending that just because you have clean skin you will stay 100% sane? Well, January Jones has! There is nothing more relatable in this moment, than this video that the Mad Men
actress posted to her Instagram with the caption “Skin: 455 Marbles: nope.” We hope we all find our marbles before this quarantine is done!
33. Some played dress-up and gave us a show
Justin Timberlake may be promoting his new Trolls movie with this post but let’s be honest, we’re all dressing up at home, either out of boredom or just to try something new. Are we sorry about it? Nope. Are we happy about it? Also, nope. It’s fun nonetheless and allows us to explore the depths of our closet, so you do you, boo!
34. While some resorted to using Snapchat filters as a way of life
Charlie Puth has done a whole bunch of live concerts to raise money and awareness for COVID-19 but the best so far has been the ones with the baby filter. TBH we’re not sure these look too different from adult-Charlie since the singer has one of the cutest baby faces in the business! If you haven’t spent a day at home only using these filters, have you even socially isolated?
