Jimmy Fallon thinks fame is "awesome".
The new presenter of ‘The Tonight Show’ treasures every moment of his success because of a stint in the Hollywood wilderness when he turned his hand to acting after leaving ‘Saturday Night Live’ in 2004.
He said: "It was rough days! I couldn’t get arrested, man.
"[Fame] is a treat, it’s awesome, because I know what it’s like not to be famous. When you experience both sides of it, this side is much better."
The 39-year-old presenter – who has six-month-old daughter Winnie with wife Nancy Juvonen – also admitted he is going to embrace being a "rich old white guy" and become more fanatical about golf.
He told New York magazine: "Golf is gonna be my thing. I have to be a rich old white guy, that’s what I have to become. It’s so sad, but I gotta play the part, man. I’ve already got my cardigan."
Jimmy is a regular golf player but in an attempt to get better, he has had clubs specially made and takes weekly lessons, as well as doing calisthenic exercises with a ball.
He joked: "I twerk for about 25 minutes. There’s a lot of hip motions – Shakira is probably very good at golf."
