#Quote
1[on his earring] It's a style, and if it goes against someone else's grain, then they think it says something about your politics. This says absolutely nothing about my politics. It says something about my style. [TV Guide, Feb. 24-March 1 1996]
2I have a hoop earring that I wear for work. I have an assortment of studs now, but they're not work earrings. [TV Guide, Feb. 24-March 1 1996]
3[on his pierced left ear] For work I wear a small gold hoop. It's tasteful and unobtrusive. At play, I wear different studs or a larger hoop.
4My left ear has been pierced for about 10 years now. It was a bit radical at the time, and I heard about it from the network guys: 'Are you going to wear an earring on the air? What does that say? What does it mean?' To me, it just meant that I had a hole in my ear and an earring in it. It wasn't a statement.
