Jim Parsons Had COVID-19, Reveals the Symptom That 'Defied the Descriptions'

Big Bang Theory‘s Jim Parsons reveals he had COVID-19 aka the Coronavirus during the beginning of the pandemic.

During his appearance on The Tonight Show, Jim revealed he and his husband Todd Spiewak thought they had colds, but then realized it was probably COVID.

“And then it seemed less likely and then finally we lost our sense of smell and taste … utterly,” Jim said when he realized it was not a cold. “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’s really nothing to do but eat ― oh my god, that was brutal.”

He did say he still ate “everything, ” but “I just didn’t taste it. The definition of wasted calories.”
