Steve Martin reveals a major problem with face masks—and his hilarious solution

September 15, 2020

Celebrities are the one group of people whom you might think would be just fine with wearing face masks. After all, they seem to spend most of their time covered in hats and sunglasses—supposedly seeking to elude the swarm of paparazzi that follows them everywhere.

With fewer people on the streets these days—and that means both fewer photographers and civilians—you would think there would be joy in Hollywood, Malibu, the Hamptons, and other celebrity hangouts. But you might be wrong.

According to a report by NBC-TV’s Today show, some stars are actually starting to appear indistinguishable from the designer-clad bourgeois—not a good look, they would say.

Steve Martin is one celeb who actually has a problem with not being recognized, so much so he created a hilarious solution for himself to circumvent that apparent issue.

“I always wear a mask when I go outside,” he wrote on Twitter to his 8.6 million followers. “But something about it was leaving me anxious and unsettled. I thought about the problem, addressed it, and here is the solution.”
