Jay Leno

Comedian Jay Leno was tapped to take over for Johnny Carson as the host of the “Tonight Show.” Leno has kept the audiences laughing since the 90’s but in 2007 he got serious with his audience and shared something very personal. The gray-haired star revealed that he had suffered from dyslexia. He shared more of his struggles with the disorder on “60 Minutes.” “We didn’t call it dyslexia then. It was called, ‘Smarten up, smarten up, smarten up.’” Leno said he learned to focus for the first time in his life when a high school English teacher introduced him to a creative writing class.
