E! IN THE ROOM EXCLUSIVE: The Sweet Way Britney Spears and Sam Asghari Stayed Connected While Quarantining Apart

Loneliness ain't killing Sam Asghari and Britney Spears no more.

Though the superstar decided to self-quarantine following a trip home to Louisiana, she has recently reunited with her longtime love. But even apart, they found sweet ways to stay connected.

"When we were not together, it was just like when I was on a project or away from her," Asghari exclusively told Jason Kennedy during an Instagram Live for In the Room. "I trained with her for workouts via FaceTime. It went great."

While their time apart felt like "a lifetime," according to the "Toxic" singer, the duo are now relishing in their endless time together spent playing cards, swimming in the pool and watching movies. "We play a lot of tennis—she's very competitive," the fitness guru says. "I think she's trained before to be a professional tennis player. That's how good she is. She's a natural athlete."

Their days often include homemade breakfast by Asghari and workout to help keep them calm. "We usually go on a bike ride, something to help reduce anxiety and stress," the 26-year-old. "Something that has solid movement."

In between workouts and preparing for upcoming acting gigs—he's set to appear in the upcoming film M.I.A—he's also making a point to give back to the community amid the coronavirus pandemic. Along with influencers Montana Tucker, Jesse Pattinson and Sara Dastjani, Asghari donated cases of VOSS water to the UCLA Medical Center, where his sister works as a nurse.

"I wanted to choose something that is significant to me," he shares. "I wanted to appreciate the people who are working so hard to make sure we are safe and our city is safe. I wanted to give back in a small way."
