London: American actor David Hasselhoff has revealed that he laughs at himself to deal with the negative publicity he receives.
“If you can`t laugh at yourself and you hold everything in, then that’s when you have problems,” Hasselhoff insisted.
Comic videos of the career and personal life of the 58-year-old actor will be aired in the US on August 15, 2010 in a new show.
A trailer for the show shows David even poking fun at the infamous Internet video his kids made of him lying on the floor drunk, trying to eat a cheeseburger.
“I’ve been there, I`m happy to be here. Nobody can bring me down but me and I`m standing,” The Mirror quoted Hasselhoff as saying.
The Baywatch star said that laughter is truly the best medicine.
“It’s what keeps us alive, it’s absolutely the thing that makes you live a long and fantastic life and it’s proven,” he said before heading into the recording.
“It’s fun to make fun of yourself, it’s always fun to enjoy life and not to take things seriously. Tonight I’m sharing my fun, my life, my past. I’m honoured to still be here and I’m honoured to be able to laugh at myself,” he added.
