The actress has been a model citizen when it comes to practicing self-quarantine amid the covid-19 outbreak, thanks to her reclusive habits, but after so many days, the lack of human contact it is taking a toll on her.


50-year-old actress Pauley Perrette, mostly known for playing forensic expert Abby Sciuto in the police procedural drama series “NCIS” for 15 years (2003-2018), has been sharing her social distancing wisdom in social media during the health crisis.

Perrette has been bragging about how prepared she was for isolate herself from others even before anybody had heard of the coronavirus, crediting her naturally reclusive personality with making it all this easier for her.


But as much as Perrette allegedly enjoys her solitude, apparently only needing the company of her dogs, after at least ten days of social distancing she too has reached her limit when it comes to not touch other people.

On March 24, the “Broke” star shared what she missed the most in these circumstances, and we can’t help but agreeing with her on this:

“I really, really, really, really, really, really miss hugs! I need to hug! I need hugs.”



Fans of the actress were deeply touched by her desperate admission, and they replied to the Tweet with supporting messages and lots of cybernetic hugs.“Sending digital hugs and luv. Even virus scanned. Hang in there kid. It’s gonna be ok,” one of her fans wrote.

“I'd like to hug my sons, my daughter-in-law, my grandchildren, my siblings, and my Mother, but I can't. Not about to endanger others regardless of what I'd like to do,” reflected another conscious netizen.


Up to this point, Perrette had proven to be a self-quarantine champion, and she even offered tips to all of us isolation amateurs to help us transit this period of reclusion as we hope to flatten the curve of the coronavirus spread.


She started by acknowledging that having a pet really helps cope with the loneliness, and, true to her commitment to animal rescue, she suggested her readers that this is a “fantastic time” to adopt a dog.

Taking care of plants was another of Perrette’s suggested activities that could help making the days spent at home more bearable.

While TV and the telephone can provide much entertainment and make time go by faster, Perrette also recommends spending some of the unplanned free time learning new skills on YouTube’s many how-to videos.



Trying to do as much as possible to help, Perrette has put her wealth and platform to good use and help others get by during these emergency times.

To make the most out of her initiative, the actress invited others to support family-owned restaurants by ordering food for delivery, thus helping them keep their businesses alive in this period of economical slowdown.


Setting an example, the star treated her entire neighborhood by ordering food for all of them, as she revealed in a video posted to her Twitter feed on March 24.

“I got my whole neighborhood @micelis1949 take out and Frank Miceli brought it! (Everyone took it home to eat, we were distancing!)” Perrette tweeted.
