DeGeneres said that she did not have money to pay the delivery man. “I don’t have any money,” DeGeneres said at the
show. “Sandy? You’ve got a lot of money. You can tip him, right?” she asked Sandra Bullock, before asking Miramax film studio executive Harvey Weinstein.

DeGeneres managed to collect some money in Pharrell Williams’ famous hat for the tip, but the pizza guy had left. “So you left before, I wanted to get you a tip and I passed Pharrell’s hat around and I ended up getting around USD 600 something like that,” DeGeneres said on the talk show. “Here is some more… here is USD 1000. Here is a total of USD 1000,” she said.

The chat show host also asked him, “You thought you were going to bring them (the pizzas) to some producers? What did they tell you?”

“Yeah, they told me I’m just going to deliver for writers and then when I was there they just told me wait here and you
came out… and you said I’m going to let you know when to follow me and I was like, we’re we going,” he said. “You said just follow me and I’m going then I’m on a stage… I was in shock.”
