'The Big Bang Theory' actor Jim Parsons revealed in "The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon" that he was infected with Covid-19.
The actor along with his husband Todd Spiewak tested positive for Covid-19 in March, reported by Yahoo.
While Parsons hadn't told anybody about his diagnosis prior to his appearance on the late night show, the actor told host Jimmy Fallon, "I figure, you know, why not talk about it with you on television."
"We had it. Todd and I both had it early on. It was, like, middle of March," Parsons told Fallon. "We didn't know what it was. We thought we had colds, and then it seemed less likely, and then, finally, we lost our sense of smell and taste."
"It defied the descriptions for me. I didn't realize how, completely, taste and smell could be gone. And when you're in quarantine, and there is really nothing to do but eat – oh my God that was brutal," added Parsons.
The actor shared that, while recovering in quarantine, he picked up some new creative hobbies like a painting class and a creative writing class. However, "everything petered out" for him. Fortunately, Parsons and Spiewak have since completely recovered and are back to being healthy.
Parsons won four Emmy awards and a Golden Globe for his role as Sheldon on The Big Bang Theory, which went on for 12 seasons before ending in May of 2019.
