And I actually don’t,’ he told the publication.
Dave went on: ‘I realise what I look like. I joke and say I look like I got out of prison yesterday. But I do. I’m very aware of that. So that’s why I’ll take an extra minute with somebody to show them I’m just not that guy.’ Madelyn Cline oozed old Hollywood glamour, as she arrived in a black silk dress with voluminous off-the-shoulder sleeves.
