Kristen Bell Gives Live Update From Orlando Hotel After Hurricane Irma: We're 'Making the Most of a Crazy Situation'

The Frozen star made headlines after she sang for people riding out the storm in Florida last weekend and performed for a large group of seniors who were shuttled to her hotel, where she was staying while in Orlando shooting a movie.

If you follow Kristen Bell on social media, you know that she's now stranded in Orlando, Florida, where she was shooting a movie before Hurricane Irma hit last weekend. Monday night from the hotel where she, two groups of nursing home residents and others have been staying since before the hurricane hit Florida.

The "Frozen" actress gave an update on "Jimmy Kimmel Live!"

Jimmy revealed that Bell has been pitching in, calling bingo and dining with her new friends.

Looks like Bell and the hotel staff are bringing plenty of moments of levity to what could have been a much more dire situation. Bell told Kimmel, "We're all safe and sound here".

"I'll never be the same", John - who believed he was speaking to Johnny Carson thanks to Bell - told the host.

Bell then panned the camera across the room where dozens of people had gathered. She's even dubbed it the #besthurricaneever in her Instagram posts (maybe a little insensitive, but we mostly get where she's coming from). But Bell saved a special shout-out for John, a WWII veteran who's already warmed our hearts via a video the actress posted to Instagram, in which she declared he was her "side piece". Gad wrote on social media on Friday that when Bell heard that Gad's family members were stranded in Florida, she secured a room in her hotel for Gad's parents, brothers, sister-in-law and niece and nephew.
