Once and for all, Daniel Radcliffe does not have coronavirus. After rumors had been circulating for months that he was the first celebrity to contract COVID-19, Radcliffe was glad to finally shut them down in a conversation with Stephen Colbert on Tuesday night.

Radcliffe told the host he’s nearing the end of a 14-day total quarantine after the play he was starring in was canceled early due to coronavirus. He said he’s staving off boredom by reading a lot and peicing together a LEGO structure that happens to be a genius way to keep kids entertained for days on end.

“The thing that has mainly passed a lot of the time, although there is now a huge hole in our lives because it is finished, is a massive LEGO project,” Radcliffe told Colbert. “It’s a 3,200-piece set of Jurassic Park. It’s the doors and a T-Rex. It’s awesome, it was very, very fun to do. And it took up a lot of time and was weirdly meditative. I think we did it over the course of three days.”

Radcliffe’s elaborate LEGO set is one of the most popular right now. His strategy is to wing it, which sounds pretty difficult with this behemoth set. But hey, whatever works for you.

“I actually find the ‘trying to follow instructions and wondering if I’m getting it right’ part quite stressful, so I don’t really do that, I sort of just organize the pieces into shapes and colors, and then I pass them to [my girlfriend], Erin, and she puts them together. So when I say, ‘I built a LEGO,’ I helped.”
