Chelsea Handler knows that she was a “self-absorbed lunatic” during her late-night show run when she hosted Chelsea Lately for eight seasons.
As a matter of fact, the television personality and comedienne says that she does not regret leaving the world of late night television behind, as it didn’t work out the best for her. The 45-year-old served as the host of her own show from 2007 to 2014.
In a new interview with Howard Stern, Chelsea said that she was done to be with that portion of her career because she believes that there is no “evolution” to it.
Chelsea Handler Admits To Being A Jerk During Her Chelsea Lately Show
“That’s me in one format doing one thing that wasn’t that interesting to me,” she explained. “Listen, nobody could have enjoyed that period of time more than I did, I guarantee you.”
“Then I outgrew it,” she said. “I had outgrown it. That’s not to say I won’t ever do it again. At that time in my life, it wasn’t interesting, I was irritated all the time. I needed a break. I’m working at a higher frequency than I was when I was just kind of winging it. There’s a lot more thought put into my work now, so I do believe that I’m in a better place and I like that I’ve grown up a lot. I’m not a self-absorbed lunatic anymore.”
Chelsea handler also said that she now feels as though she was too “self-absorbed” for many years and that it was time for a change.
“It was all about me,” the actress recalled. “And that’s not a way to operate and so I had to remove myself from that situation to get myself in a better headspace.”
She also added that dealing with industry figures and publicists got the best of her.
“I was like, ‘This is so stupid,'” she admitted. “I don’t look back at it like I’m embarrassed by it, I just look back at it like that was then, I outgrew it.”
