Jimmy Fallon is the much beloved late night host who gives so much of himself on The Tonight Show entertaining his guests and viewers at home.

But he's also known as an absolute sweetheart.


This was evident at a restaurant in the Hamptons on Monday night.

Fallon picked up the neighboring table's bill to express his gratitude for being left alone while dining with his wife and producer, Nancy Juvonen.

Enzo Lentini, the manager for Il Mulino, told Newsday that the talk show host usually comes in on Sundays, but he happened to come in on a Monday.

Due to the Hampton Classic Horse Show running through the weekend, the restaurant was busy for a Monday night. So Lentini ushered Fallon and his wife through the kitchen door.

"I walked him downstairs, through the kitchen and into the dining room."
"He's like, 'Enzo, where you taking me!' The kitchen [staff] got a big kick out if it, too — they were all clapping when he came through."

When Fallon and his wife sat down next to a table with two couples about the same age as the late-night host, they instantly recognized him.

However, Fallon and his wife of eleven years were able to enjoy their dinner undisturbed.


Giphy

Lentini explained that the visiting New Yorkers appeared starstruck, but they respected the couple's privacy.

"They wanted to jump out of their skin. But they were cool — they didn't want to interrupt him."


After dinner, Fallon surprised his fellow diners with a grand gesture.

"He went up to them and said, 'I appreciate you guys not wanting to disturb us. I knew you wanted to say hello."
"So he picked up the tab. With tip it was $1,136."

According to Newsday, the story was confirmed by the celebrity's spokeswoman, Claire Mercuri.



Although it was generous of him to pick up a stranger's tab, some commenters couldn't get past the fact that diners in the Hamptons could afford the meal.


Regardless, it was the thought behind the gesture that counts. It was meant as a sincere "thank you."


No matter what the typical patron could afford when dining out in the Hamptons, Jimmy Fallon is still just an overall nice guy.

There's something seeing a person litter that drives me up the wall. I remember being a kid and being explicitly told to hold on to my trash and not just throw it in the street. As a kid, I distinctly remember being made fun of for not just throwing the bag of chips I'd just eaten or an empty soda bottle into the gutter.

I can't imagine doing that. Why?! We truly treat this planet as if we have somewhere else to go.

When you're in the market for a slew of very specific facts that all fall under the same general theme, the internet really delivers.

Forget streamlined public health capabilities and revolutionized human communication, the true beauty of the internet is all the random, barely useful information you can find when a bunch odd people decide to assemble and swap info.

Working in a doctor's office means helping people when they're at their lowest. Sometimes, that leads to wonderful moments when the patient is thankful for all the advice and care you provided. Other times, it means taking something out of someone's bum.

Turns out, that second one happens a lot more than you might think.

I love movies. The cinema has long been a savior of mine and has given me some of my greatest inspirations. But being an avid film watcher has also made me quite the critic. I can always tell when a movie is worth the money to see in theaters or wait until it's on basic cable with commercials. The signs of mediocrity abound, and sometimes they aren't that difficult to spot.

Redditor u/fjv08kl wanted to know what is obvious about mediocre cinema by asking.... What are some subtle 'red flags' that tell you a movie is not worth watching?
