NAMES IN THE NEWS : Seinfeld Admits Shallowness

<i> From Times Wire Services </i>

Comedian Jerry Seinfeld says he doesn’t try to hide his shallowness.

“I take the most normal things in life and spend way too much time thinking about them,” Seinfeld, 36, said in the May 21 issue of Time magazine.

The creator, co-writer and star of “Seinfeld,” scheduled to debut on NBC this month, said the show will depict incidents that expose his most personal side.

But he is not worried.


Because “when you’re a shallow person, there’s no danger in opening yourself up.”
