Steve Martin Jokes About Not Being Recognized Because Of Masks


Wearing face masks are becoming the new normal during the coronavirus pandemic. Turns out some celebrities actually might like wearing them! If they wear sunglasses and a face mask they are basically unrecognizable to their fans. Comedian Steve Martin made a joke and offered up a hilarious solution to this problem.

For those celebrities who actually want to be recognized, Steve offered a solution. He wrote on Twitter, “I always wear a mask when I go outside. But something about it was leaving me anxious and unsettled. I thought about the problem, addressed it, and here is the solution.”
