  • So Ellen.
  • Yes, Simon.
  • It's been a while.
  • It's good to see you.
  • Likewise.
  • You are-- you've dropped some pounds, right?
  • I have, yeah.
  • What are you doing?
  • Well, I was told--
  • I have a producer, who one of the producers who
  • works with us on AGT.
  • And he has a sort of a way of saying to me I look terrible,
  • without saying I look terrible.
  • So when he says things like get your haircut shorter,
  • that means you look terrible, Simon.
  • Sort yourself out.
  • So I went to see this doctor in London, and we did some tests.
  • And then a month later, he said you have the worst diet
  • I've ever met from any patient.
  • So I went OK, so out of the smoking, the drinking,
  • the diet, what do I have to drop?
  • He said, the diet.
  • So I said, all right.
  • I'm in.
  • Following day.
  • So you're still drinking and smoking.
  • Yeah.
  • What did you--
  • What's your diet now?
  • It's pretty much all the things I loved I can't now eat.
  • So no dairy, no sugar, no bread, no gluten.
  • Just lots of lots of things.
  • No red meat.
  • Well, all those things are bad for you.
  • So it's a good thing you dropped all those things.
  • But that's fantastic that you are doing--
  • you're actually doing it.
  • Because if you love those things,
  • it's hard to drop things that you're
  • addicted to eating every day.
  • You know what?
  • I got to be honest with you.
  • It was easier than I thought.
  • And part of the reason I did it was because Eric
  • is five this year.
  • So I realized that if I didn't sort myself out, physically,
  • I wouldn't be able to catch up with him.
  • Because the minute he goes-- he wakes up,
  • for the minute he goes to sleep.
  • You know, he is like their energy.
  • You forget, five years old, it's phenomenal.
  • I have a puppy.
  • You know what I mean.
  • And I have four.
  • So I get it.
  • That's the-- that's great that you're doing that though--
  • What is that picture?
  • Have you not seen that picture?
  • That's not one of the best I've ever seen.
  • Do you know why we do these pictures?
  • Because I actually don't like having my picture taken.
  • And Lauren, my partner, everywhere we go,
  • she says can we do a picture?
  • So I said to Eric, I've got a good solution.
  • Just stick your tongue out every time we do a picture.
  • And we don't have to do so many pictures.
  • But you're not sticking your tongue out there.
  • I wasn't aware I was being photographed.
  • That's really sweet.
  • You seem very happy.
  • I'm happy to see you.
  • And so do you.
  • Yeah.
  • Thank you.
  • I am.
  • I'm very happy.
  • So you're brilliant.
  • You're a businessman.
  • You're very successful in many, many ways.
  • There-- there's a decision that you completely--
  • I'm trying to help you.
  • Last time you were here, I saw that you
  • weren't wearing a helmet when you were bicycling.
  • I've been wearing it.
  • No.
  • I saw pictures of you not wearing it.
  • Where's the picture?
  • I saw a picture of you not wearing it.
  • This is recently.
  • That's your helmet.
  • You're not wearing a helmet.
  • Your helmet, if you remember, had real hair.
  • That's your helmet.
  • That is not--
  • The point is, all of you should be wearing helmets.
  • Eric was wearing a helmet.
  • But me and Lauren weren't, I will concede.
  • Look, he's wearing a helmet.
  • OK, so when you and Lauren--
  • --and so is Lauren, look.
  • Lauren's wearing a hat.
  • It's quite a hard one.
  • So it's good.
  • So when the two of you fall off, and you're unconscious
  • he's wandering around by himself with a helmet on.
  • That's what's going to happen.
  • Where-- you got to wear a helmet.
  • Alright, I'll do it.
  • I mean, you've given up things in your diet.
  • Good.
  • I appreciate that.
  • You want to talk about your birthday coming up?
  • Do we have to?
  • Yeah.
  • OK.
  • When is it.
  • October 7?
  • And you're going to be?
  • 60.
  • 60.
  • [APPLAUSE]
  • How do you feel about it?
  • I feel actually great.
  • The only thing is that I've never actually liked
  • celebrating my birthday.
  • So I said to Lauren, can we just make one agreement this year.
  • We don't make like a big deal out of it,
  • just do something quiet.
  • No birthday cake.
  • And I'll just get through it.
  • Well you can't eat it anyway.
  • Exactly, yeah.
  • Yeah.
  • But you should celebrate that.
  • I mean, that is--
  • it's amazing.
  • Because I'm 61, and when I turned 60,
  • it's like you just-- you just really think
  • that 60, when you're younger, is so old.
  • And then you hit it, and you're like it is.
  • You know?
  • That's encouraging.
  • All right.
  • I'm going to try one more time.
  • This is your birthday present.
  • This is the last time I'm trying this.
  • OK.
  • All right.
  • It's a hat, isn't it?
  • Yep.
  • [LAUGHTER]
  • [APPLAUSE]
  • This is worse than the last one.
  • Oh no, I can't.
  • I can't.
  • I'll wear the old one.
  • That's backwards, by the way.
  • OK.
  • It looks just as bad.
  • All right.
  • You sure you don't want to wear that?
  • Never.
  • OK, well.
  • 60-year-old Simon Cowell.
  • Under here.
  • Oh, great.
  • The finale of AGT airs September 18 at 8:00.
