David Walliams questions plastic surgery on comedians as wife Lara Stone admits she never cooks
David Walliams has admitted that he is baffled by stand-up stars who undergo cosmetic surgery because he is convinced comics such as Joan Rivers and Jackie Mason can no longer facially express themselves on stage.
The Britain’s Got Talent judge, who this week landed the number 1 comedy best-seller on Amazon with his autobiography Camp David and is nominated for a Red House award for his books for children, admits he hates the way he looks but would never consider going under the knife to improve his image.
He tells Esquire magazine, “I’ve always, always hated the way I look. But that’s OK, I’m a comedian, it wouldn’t be good for me to be vain. If I was worried about the way I look – I’m 41 – it’s a slippery slope to fillers and Botox and looking for lines on my forehead and all that kind of nonsense…
“It’s ridiculous. I can’t believe it when I look at Jackie Mason and Joan Rivers, two of the great American comedians, their faces don’t move. How do you sell a joke in the way you would have done before? Because now you’ve got a mask.
“Especially Jackie Mason, you think, ‘No one thought you were handsome! Everyone thought you were funny. What are you holding on to?’”
Meanwhile, in a separate interview with InStyle Magazine, Lara Stone the wife of the comic who was this week voted one of the UK’s best dressed men by GQ, reveals more about the couples own home life.
The supermodel, whom is expecting the couples first baby in spring, reveals that she and her husband both have hectic lives. This means neither usually has time to spend rustling up goodies in the kitchen, so they have come to an agreement with a local eatery to ensure they never go hungry.
“I don’t cook, but my husband and I have a lovely deli hear our house called Melrose and Morgan. Luckily, they feed us every day,” she laughed.
