Gallo Quit Boxing To Save His Face
Actor VINCENT GALLO was a champion amateur boxer - but quit to save his face from the constant beatings. The 45-year-old claims he was too vain to let his looks get ruined so decided to change his career path. He explains to New York magazine, "When you're vain and you can't stand your face, even the way it is, you don't want to take any more chances." Gallo adds of his 'flawed' face, "It started off so nice - the little button nose and long blond hair. And then God punished me."
