Ellen DeGeneres Dresses as a Real Superhero, a Nurse, for Halloween

Ellen DeGeneres dressed up for Halloween for her talk show’s latest episode and she dressed up as her favorite superhero: a nurse!

The 62-year-old talk show host was joined on the show by her DJ and co-producer tWitch, who traveled back to the ’70s with his costume.

“I’m dressed as my favorite superhero. I’m a nurse. I think all nurses are superheroes. Their superpower is going 48 hours without sleep. That’s one of their superpowers,” Ellen said during her monologue. “Now more than ever, we are realizing who the true superheroes are, people like nurses and teachers. They’re all essential workers. They’re true celebrities.”

She continued, “What we should do – we should give them awards. We should be putting them on the cover of magazines. Teenagers should have posters of them hanging up in their rooms to practice kissing on. I like that we’ve redefined what jobs are really heroic. That’s why I’m wearing a cape.”

Despite the pandemic, Ellen was able to continue one of her favorite Halloween traditions!
