"House" Star Hugh Laurie Gets First Cold Ever

| by

You read right - House star Hugh Laurie got his first cold ever!

He told the Ellen DeGeneres Show on Monday (2/28), saying he kept doctors baffled for the 50-plus years of never getting a cold. 

“It’s the first cold of my whole life,” he said.

“I’m excited about it because for so many years I believed that I didn’t get colds because, basically, nothing could live in this body. I was so addled with booze and cigarettes… but it appears I have curb appeal after all.

“I don’t know how I got it. The whole thing is so novel that I feel like I’ve sort of rejoined the human race… I’m hoping to string it out.”
