LOS ANGELES, Dec 4, (Agencies): Jay Leno remains undeterred by accidents and setbacks, steadfast in pursuing his dreams and passions. The 73-year-old stand-up comic and former host of The Tonight Show took the stage at this year’s Kennedy Center Honors in Washington, DC, reflecting on his high-profile near-death experiences in the past year.

Despite facing a garage fire that resulted in severe facial burns in November 2022 and sustaining multiple broken bones after a motorcycle accident in January 2023, Leno expressed that these incidents haven’t altered his outlook on life, driving, or working on vehicles in the slightest.

When questioned about the impact on his perspective, Leno humorously remarked, “Nothing is different whatsoever. It hasn’t changed it at all. Once a man hits 40, you can’t convince him of anything else.”

With a lifetime dedicated to collecting, driving, and repairing a diverse array of cars and bikes, Leno remains resolute in his habits. “I’m still riding motorcycles. I’m still falling off, I’m still working on cars,” he shared. Leno playfully added, “No, once a guy learns [something], you can’t teach him new tricks.”

Looking ahead, Leno quipped about his future, saying, “Oh, riding motorcycles and falling off!” — showcasing his resilience and unwavering commitment to his passions despite the challenges he has faced.
