Eventually, she spilled, “I gave him a … phone for senior citizens.” Specifically, she says she got him the Jitterbug which is a smartphone designed to be easy to read and has other emergency functions. It’s no iPhone X but it doesn’t sound like he had any complaints!

Grant … who’s in my movie.” She continued, “He found out on the way home. He’s like, ‘Wait, is this your anniversary?’ I’m like, ‘Yes, you’re the gift.’ And we just ate hamburgers.”
