The Talk: Jamie Dornan Body Image
Aisha Tyler asked Steven Weber about Jamie Dornan’s story that he does not like his body. Weber said that either the other actor is fishing for compliments or chose a line of work that is only going to exacerbate his insecurities.
Weber began his acting career at age 5, and by 1985, he got his big break on the CBS soap As the World Turns. Sheryl Underwood credited him with starting a trend, as the first male character to sport an earring.
But in the years since, his piercing has healed, but it’s still visible enough for his sons to mock. Guest co-host Marie Osmond offered to let Weber put on one of her earrings.
