Kristin Chenoweth, 52, talks life in quarantine with beau Josh Bryant, 38, and how they ‘managed to make it work’
Life as we all knew it has dramatically changed these last eight months since COVID-19 was deemed a pandemic in mid-March.
And like countless couples across the world, Kristin Chenoweth and beau Josh Bryant have had to be keenly aware to keep a healthy balance while living in close quarters together in quarantine.
‘We managed to stay creative and still have a good time,’ the Tony and Emmy-winning actress shared during an interview with People.

The couple, who’ve been romantically linked since August 2018, stayed creative and busy, in part, by making TikTok videos together, and filming a Tiger King musical parody dubbed, Little Pieces, that Bryant shot on Chenoweth’s iPhone.
She gave all credit to Bryant, a guitarist, for introducing her to TikTok, and has now garnered over 1.6 million likes since joining the social media platform in March.
‘My boyfriend is 14 years younger than me. Thus, I’m good at TikTok,’ the Holidate star, 52, said while laughing.
‘I didn’t know what TikTok was, I didn’t necessarily want to do TikTok. Now I love TikTok with his help.’

The Oklahoma native says their TikTok time together was invaluable for her to be able to connect and interact with an audience, albeit, a virtual one.
‘I have been a creature of the theater and on concert tours for so long that I am used to the immediate gratification of a live audience reaction,’ she said before confessing she has a newfound love for social media platforms.
‘It’s the audience, so to speak. And until we can come back safe and strong, then that will remain the case.’

Recognizing everyone needs personal space, the couple has also made sure to spend some necessary time apart from each other.
‘He took a couple of walks on his own, as did I, because you just can’t be with someone 24/7,’ Chenoweth added.
‘That’s the truth. And yet we managed to make it work somehow.’
Chenoweth has also been busy with her new, and still untitled, Apple TV comedy/music series that’s premiering soon, and as host of Food Network’s new baking competition series, Candy Land.
She also stars in the romantic comedy holiday film Holidate, which premiered on Netflix October 28, alongside Emma Roberts, Luke Bracey, Jake Manley and Jessica Capshaw.
