Dungarees are HOT!


A few years ago, I purchased a copy of People's 50 Most Beautiful People issues. That year, Steve Martin happened to be one of them. I thought his interview was fabulous, so I clipped it and have kept it up on my fridge ever since. So I figured I should share....

"It's very hard being one of the most beautiful people. Having this kind of beauty is actually a burden. Sometimes I go to a party and not one of the other 49 most beautiful people is there. That makes me feel very solitary and alone, because it means I am the most beautiful person in the room.

If I'm going to a party where I know there will be 'less-beautiful people,' I try to dress down in order to hide my beauty. But this seems to have a counter-effect of actually making me more beautiful. I guess me and dungarees are a pretty potent combination.

I try not to lord my beauty over others. This is very hard. I try not to mention that I am one of the most beautiful people, but somehow it always comes out. I will usually only bring it up when I'm asked to do a task, like open a garage door. People seem to enjoy my beauty and are genuinely happy for me, because after I mention it they always say, 'How nice for you.'"

Steve Martin never ceases to amuse me. I still laugh every time I watch The Jerk. Who else but a "beauty" could have been King Tut?

Holly, you crack me up to even think to put this on here! But of course you would understand his pain of being on of the beautiful people.... :)

Actually, People Magazine originally approached me, but being the uber modest person that I am, I said, "Hey, you know who's even hotter than me, Steve Martin." I was happy to insist. :o)
