Jimmy Fallon enjoys fame more after experiencing years in the Hollywood wilderness.
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.''
