Americans were shocked when, several months ago, iconic comedian Jay Leno suffered a serious accident. The noted car enthusiast suffered third-degree burns to his face. Thanks to the quick work of a friend, he survived the ordeal but was admitted to the hospital for weeks.
Leno has continued his traveling career after leaving The Tonight Show, but this accident forced him to stay under wraps for quite a while. The first time he went for a drive after that, he was in an accident and broke several bones. But just this week, he was back on TV. He appeared on Kelly Clarkson’s daytime show, revealing to the world his “brand new face.”
From The Western Journal:
Entertainer Jay Leno showed off his “brand new face” Wednesday during an appearance on “The Kelly Clarkson Show.” […]
Leno bounced between explaining what took place and making fun of it.
“It’s unbelievable. It is. It’s unbelievable. What happened, I was working on a car and I got a face full of gasoline. And it caught fire,” he said…
“You can’t tell at all,” Clarkson said.
“No, you think there’d be a zipper here or something,” Leno said.
It’s almost hard to believe that just a few months ago, Leno had third-degree burns all over his face. And the way he walked onto the set, you’d never know he broke numerous bones just this past January.
What the heck is this guy eating? Because we need some of that! Leno is 72 years old, but has the same energy and wit he’s always had. Whoever worked on his face must be some kind of genius. Leno said he has a “brand new face;” there appear to be no signs of injury. He even said they gave him a new ear!
I’m sure millions of fans are overjoyed to see Leno healthy and recovered. The man seems ready to resume his comedy and who knows what else? Hopefully, though, he will be a bit more careful around his cars!
