Celebrities shared their concern for those on the East Coast at the Hollywood premiere of Disney’s “Wreck-It Ralph” on Monday.
“[I’ve] been watching the weather channel non-stop and I feel like I’m there, and then I turn and there’s just blue skies and sunshine,” Sarah Silverman, who voices Vanellope von Schweetz in the animated 3-D flick told CNN. “And I feel guilty, but not too guilty.”
Jane Lynch had a similar sentiment: “It’s a very, very strange thing that we are enjoying a beautiful day here in Los Angeles. … Our hearts are with everybody on the East Coast, and hang in there and know that when this blows over, and it will, we will all take care of each other.”
Jack McBrayer, who plays Kenneth Parcell on “30 Rock,” which films in New York City, joked, “I think work is cancelled today, and I think work is cancelled tomorrow. I might be stuck here for awhile.”
Meanwhile, McBrayer’s “30 Rock” co-star Tracy Morgan took to Twitter to update followers on his status: “No [sic] electicity so I sit alone in my four cornered room staring at candles.”
Taraji P. Henson, on the other hand, didn’t seem quite as content passing the time indoors. “Experiencing the onset of CABIN FEVER!!!!!” she tweeted.
Former “American Idol” contestant Pia Toscano posted, “I can't sleep soundly knowing what is going on in Queens right now. Praying for all those who lost their homes in Breezy Point.”
And Octavia Spencer asked her followers to keep the victims of Superstorm Sandy in their prayers: “Have a blessed & wonderful day and know that someone else isn't. Pray for them!”
