After considering his life in the public eye, Howard recalled what it was like before he was famous: "I remember not being noticed. It was really uncomfortable. Being famous is a whole lot better. Don't listen to these assholes who tell you it's no good to be famous. It's great. Believe me. It's like being a hot chick. Everyone wants to see you and know you...famous is terrific. That means you're successful. That means it's working out. That means chicks don't find you repulsive."
