Reason 154: He’s not a ladies man
-Jay Leno: Were you a ladies man in the day…
Hugh Laurie: No, I mean, I’m, buh, pff! I’m 48 years old, I’ve never asked a woman on a date, never asked a woman to dance, never thrown a party…
JL: Really? Never thrown a party, I think I’ll go on with that one
Hugh Laurie: Yeah, and, never asked a woman to… I don’t know, what the phrase is over here.-
-Hugh Laurie: What I mean is that I’ve never had that moment in the night club, where you go up, in fact, you go to a stranger.
JL: Oh you mean with the disco ball going and you’re doing this… (Dancing)
Hugh Laurie: Right, exactly! And you say “You, with me, and we’ll start a little bit of that” I’ve never, that never happened and may never! [Screencaps above]
Jay Leno: Oh yeah I hope that never happens
Hugh Laurie: See, it was ugly!-
"As far as I can remember in my life I have never asked a girl to dance, I have never asked a girl out and I have never had a party" Hugh Laurie.
-Jay Leno: Does this put expectations on you now when you meet women, do they say “Oh my god”! (On being considered a sex symbol)
Hugh Laurie: Well, I’m set up as a major dissapointment. Yeah, you know, I’m hopeless… I’m… yeah. I’m playing a sexy character, I think that’s, I’ll coincide that much, I’m an unsexy person. Hopeless in bed.
Hugh Laurie: Oh! Just disasters.-
JL: Don’t you have children? so must have been partially succesful, I mean some part must have gone well…
Hugh Laurie: Yeah, ok. but there was an awful lot of trying though.
JL: From a science point of view you’re successful
Hugh Laurie: Yeah, ok. That far I’ll give you.
JL: Would you, perhaps, if you won an honor like this when you were single, perhaps, that’d have been…
Hugh Laurie: Might have been a little bit more useful, yeah!-
