Jimmy Fallon - Jimmy Fallon loves fame

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.''
