Interview: Larry David - actor and comedian

By Ruth Walker

Larry David on life before Seinfeld, being follicularly challenged, and a family man at last

On being follicularly challenged

Anyone can be confident with a full head of hair. But a confident bald man – there's your diamond in the rough. Women love a self-confident bald man.

On starting a family

I've led this empty life for over 40 years and now I can pass that heritage on and ensure that the misery will continue for at least one more generation.

On life before Seinfeld

When I was living in New York and didn't have a penny to my name, I would walk around the streets and occasionally I would see an alcove or something. And I'd think, that'll be a good spot for me when I'm homeless.

On the war in Iraq

I like how if you criticise the war you don't support the troops. You're the ones sending them over to die, so how is it I don't support them? If the army was made up of child molesters, then I'd support them.

On working with Woody Allen

I was intimidated. I don't like to be out of my comfort zone, which is about a half an inch wide.

On Celebrity affectations

You know who wears sunglasses inside? Blind people and assholes.

On winning a Golden Globe for Curb Your Enthusiasm

This is a sad day for the Golden Globes. It is, however, a good day for Larry David. I imagine the wife will be forthcoming tonight.

Larry David stars in the new Woody Allen film Whatever Works, released on DVD on Friday.
