The Hoff talks about being famous

David Hasselhoff likes it when he isn't recognised

David Hasselhoff has claimed he has only ever met two people who didn't know who he was.

The Britain's Got Talent judge, who is a big singing star in Germany, spoke about the pros and cons of fame in an interview with the Sun.

He said: "I like it when people don't know who I am. It makes for a great conversation because it's not about me. But I've only ever met two who don't know me.

"You get the best seat in the restaurant but everyone watches you eat."

The former Baywatch star added that even his dad calls him Michael, a reference to Michael Knight, his character in TV hit Knight Rider.

In his interview, the 59-year-old also said he wants to help other people following his own battle with alcohol addiction.

"I should call Charlie Sheen. We were neighbours and I had his number but I've lost it," he said.

You may find yourselves chatting as if you've known each other for years.More
