People around the world are finding ways to pass the time spent at home, as measures to reduce the spread of coronavirus have led to restrictions on movement. Many are discovering, or rediscovering, the joy of LEGO building – as is the case with film actor Anna Kendrick.
“I’m doing too much LEGOs, like, I’ve never really done, like, LEGOs—like, the LEGO kits. Turns out, LEGOs are amazing. It’s so much fun. It shouldn’t be this fun. I’m a grown up, what’s happening?” she said to Jimmy Fallon, in an interview conducted remotely while production of his show is shut down.
“You’ve become like a LEGO nerd,” Fallon says.
“Obviously I am going to take it apart and give to a kid when this is all over,” the actor says. “It’s hard for me to not want to build a shelf of all the LEGOs I have made, because I do feel weirdly proud of it. Like, when you make an IKEA piece of furniture and you’re like ‘maybe I’m a carpenter? Maybe I’m amazing at this?’”
