The latest edition of Piers Morgan's weekly diary as published in the U.K.'s "Daily Mail" is out.
Titled "Bill Roache said he's slept with many more than 100 women. He's the Bill Wyman of TV," the CNN host reveals himself as a fashion trendsetter and budding film star.
Referencing a recent magazine article, the host of "Piers Morgan Tonight" admits that while he's surprised to find himself mentioned amongst England's best-dressed, he isn't exactly complaining:
"Ozwald Boateng, arguably the coolest designer in Britain, today named his Top Ten great British male style icons in this very magazine – and to general astonishment, not least to myself, he included me at number ten. It’s not often I’ve seen myself in the same list as David Bowie, Michael Fassbender, Daniel Day-Lewis, Sir Winston Churchill and Tinie Tempah. Ozwald’s explanatory citation read: ‘Since moving to CNN, Piers’ sense of style has evolved dramatically...He’s now one of the best-dressed men on TV...Piers seems to make the right decisions every time. He knows instinctively what looks good on him. With or without a tie, his suits give him this quiet authority that sits well with him as a host.’ I have absolutely nothing I wish to add to this. I just wanted to repeat it, in full, in case you missed it the first time."
Elsewhere in Mr. Morgan's recently penned journal, the author touches upon his upcoming appearances on the silver screen. As usual, his tone is the perfect hybrid of hubris and humility:
"Hot on the heels of being asked to shoot two scenes for Denzel Washington’s new thriller, I’ve now been asked to interview Will Ferrell on my CNN studio set in New York for a forthcoming comedy based on a scandal-hit politician. So I could end up starring in more hit films this summer than Hugh Grant – which will doubtless give him something else to whine about. I don’t know where all this big-screen work is leading. But let’s just say that a) I know Daniel Craig’s getting bored with playing James Bond, and b) I’ve spent the past six years in America being mistaken for Pierce Brosnan."
