    Today, he had Richard asking people on the street if they thought Howard was sexy (actually he said the the NT voted Howard sexiest man of the year and asked what they thought). Howard seemed to be surprised that almost every one of them thought Howard was a steaming pile of shit in the looks department. Ha can't be serious, can he?

    When you live in a bubble (where everyone tells you that you're good-looking) AND you spend a fortune on cosmetic surgery, fake teeth and hair, you're bound to develop a distorted self-image. Beth and everyone else on Howard's payroll have convinced him that he's "cute". :puke:

    I think that Howard does think he's hot. He is that out of touch.

    He only meant it up until he started spending money on his face, teeth and hair. Now he pretends to think he's hideous, but he's obviously offended when anyone goes along with that theory.

    He's fishing for compliments. Usually when Howard says stuff like that people in the studio or on the phone jump to his defense, although not today. It's similar to when he goes on the air and says he can't find clothing in his size (or some other product) and miraculously someone contacts him and provides it for free. Then he claims he wasn't looking for a handout and was surprised when people responded that way.

    Howard's MO is to say self-deprecating things that are either totally or partially false and use it for humor. Here are some examples:

    1) Claimed to be only HALF-Jewish; back in the 80s and 90s he made lots of anti-Semitic jokes and let Gilbert do the same.
    2) Claimed to be "hung like an elevator button"; funny joke, but probably untrue. He supposedly was measured by some porn star at 6" and women he supposedly slept with said he was normal sized
    3) Portrayed himself as a borderline reckless lech who was still 100% faithful to his wife Allison (as portrayed in Private Parts; was probably cheating on his wife and divorced her as soon as film was out of theaters.
    4) Has always claimed to be ugly; before all the plastic surgery, stupid hairstyles and wigs he actually looked fairly average (other than height)
    5) Portrayed himself as an average, working class guy from a rough neighborhood; by his own admission he's been a millionaire since the mid-80s

    Howard never has thought he was handsome and he's compensated by trying to dress like a rock star for years. I believe he felt he pulled off a good look; he sure was proud of his body on the cover of Private Parts (the book). The plastic surgery on his neck (back in the 90s) was his first attempt at "perfecting" himself, but age, genetics, and poor surgery has resulted in a Mickey Rourke like transmutation. Unlike Mickey, Howard has never received the public ridicule or experienced the failure that would force some self-reflection and honesty. Today, Howard is a mess. Fucked up teeth, fucked up chin, bald and wearing a horrible wig, anorexic, no fashion sense....the perfect storm of douchebaggery.

    I'm pretty sure it's schtick.

    His horrible looks are basically the only aspect of his life where he can still be self deprecating at times.

    I actually thought Howard's "rock star" look of the 90s was kind of cool in a unique, original kind of way. He was never going to be mistaken for a leading man but he definately had an edgy, intimidating, bad ass type look that matched his radio persona at the time.

    Now with the short inky black clown hair, scarves, skin tight black jeans, 13 yr old skater shirts, he looks like a complete douchebag.

    6 inches is respectable and apparently above average, but on a 6 foot five lanky frame it probably looks small.

    Hell, I'm longer than 6 inches and i'm only 5 foot 6

    I loved Howard at one time but always thought he was hideous. Beth has the X-men ability to zone out and think of his check book when he is humping her...

    Howard is an extreme narcissist. They think they are beautiful regardless of how ugly they know they are.
