Jay Leno has dyslexia.

Jay Leno is a comedian, actor, philanthropist and television host. We asked what he’d like to tell his younger self. “The one great thing about being dyslexic is you tend to focus like a laser beam. Whether it’s playing a video game, or whether it’s being a filmmaker, or whether it’s wanting to be a comedian, you tend to put all of your efforts into that direction. With every disadvantage, there’s an advantage, and I think that’s our advantage. When we find something we can do well we go right there. And we become successful.”
