Step 1: Quickly get off your chair and arrange a chair for your husband beside you when he is greeting your friend.
Step 2: Gently brush a hand on his back as he passes in front of you.
Step 3: Make eye contact with him once he is seated to make sure he is comfortable. If you notice that his chair is too far away from yours make him pull it closer.
Step 4: Fix him a drink. But what if there is no new glass for him? No problem. Just finish the drink in your glass and fix him a drink in the same glass since you have share way more bodily fluids than saliva with him.
Step 5: Carefully read the labels on each bottle before choosing the best one for him. Make sure the one you choose smells good before pouring him a glass.
Step 6: When you hand him the glass, make sure it looks nonchalant and hide your face.
This was kinda what got me, was… So, signing autographs—and some of you guys were probably a part of the situation—I don’t know if you remember when Misha walked up with her (points to fan who volunteers with the crisis line) and said, “Hey, she’s one of the counselors that is part of what we set up.” I hadn’t actually… that hadn’t been personified for me yet. So I spoke to you for a brief second, and it was something like… was it fifty hours? Right? Could you stand up?
Fifty hours you’d spent on the phone. And she walked away, and… that hit me. That that was fifty hours…
It’s hitting me now. Shit.
That something that was spawned out of this (gestures to crowd), and out of this (gestures between himself and Misha)… could help people to that degree, to where there was a verified person to counsel somebody, or people, for that amount of time, and she was one of them. And I know that there’s many of them. It hit me hard.
And I get to look at you, and I get to see you guys, and I know you all have a story, and I wish I could hear and talk to every one of you at length. I don’t have that opportunity, but knowing that something that I was a part of helped create that… that betters people, and inspires people to be a better person… Because—and Jared shared this with me—he’s like, “No one can help you but yourself. You are the only person that can help yourself. But if you get inspired by something, if something touches you and inspires you and makes you believe something that then helps you help yourself, then that’s important.” And she’s doing important things. And the fact that I was a small molecule of a being that helped many people…
I don’t know. It hit me really, really hard. And I had to take a… I had to take a breather. I had to take a knee. And so I went upstairs to Daniela’s room—she was like, “You need to come upstairs,” and I’m like (crying voice) “Yeah, I think I do.”
(laughter, cheers, applause)
All right, all right…
I remember walking up to her room… I didn’t make it. So I held out for maybe like 70 more autographs. I was like, (mimics signing fast while holding back emotions) “Mmmph… thank you. Mmmph, thank you. Mmmphhhh, thank you. Ffffffffff aaahhhhh—“
He was very flatulent during that time.
Yes. That was just the gas.
Then we were walking, and I was like, “Nope, nope, you’re not gonna make it to the elevator.” And I just sat there, and Jared just, like, grabbed me and hugged me… It was like, one of those moments where it’s like… This shouldn’t exist. Like, from a point of view that is, like, a television show, actor/fan relationship, this probably shouldn’t exist. It exists, guys. We feel you. And you mean a shit ton to us. You really do.
