Kristin Chenoweth Talks Quarters on “Ellen”

Posted Thursday March 22, 2012 11:28 AM GMT

She has a hot new television series called “GCB,” and Kristin Chenoweth is on top of her game these days.

During her interview on the “Ellen DeGeneres Show,” the “Pushing Daisies” dame confessed that she has an obsession with collecting quarters wherever she goes.

Kristin explained, “It’s a weird thing: I don’t know why I have it. This is not a lie. I obsess on saving them. I got to have quarters. I have them in my car. I have jars of quarters. I stash them away. And the minute I get home from a shopping trip or any trip, I put all the quarters away ... I don’t know what it is.”

The beloved Broadway babe added, “I have a collection of jars of quarters in New York. Last week, my best friend e-mailed [and asked me,] ‘What are you doing?’ I’m taking a picture of my jar of quarters … what’s wrong with me?”

Ellen shot back, “It’s a safe addiction. No one’s getting hurt. You like quarters and that’s fine. You get a high from putting a quarter in a meter.”
