Late Night TV show icon and classic car aficionado Jay Leno ripped into spoiled, “whiny” celebrities in an interview with the Wall Street Journal, blasting them for being so complaint prone after giving the Wall Street Journal a few important updates on his health condition. Leno’s health was at issue because of a car fire he was recently in.
Speaking to the Wall Street Journal, Leno said:
“You have to joke about it. There’s nothing worse than whiny celebrities. If you joke about it, people laugh along with you. Eight days later, I had a brand new face… And it’s better than what was there before.”
Continuing with his comments on whiny celebrities and his injuries, Leno then said “But really, it was an accident, that’s all. Anybody who works with their hands on a regular basis is going to have an accident at some point. If you play football, you get a concussion or a broken leg. Anything you do, there’s a risk factor.”
Leno was seriously injured by burns during a car wreck in mid-November. “‘I got some serious burns from a gasoline fire,’ the comedian, 72, told Page Six in a statement. Continuing, he said “I am OK. Just need a week or two to get back on my feet.‘”
Despite those serious injuries, Leno was back in his classic car garage within days of the incident, with TMZ reporting:
“Jay Leno’s legendary car collection now boasts over 180 exotic cars, hypercars and museum-grade artifacts. Put simply, nobody else in the world has a space-age McLaren P1 parked near their antique fire engine,” US News reports.
