Billy Crystal learns to laugh at himself

Billy Crystal will share his comedic views on life and aging in a new memoir to be published on his 65th birthday in March 2013.

The actor and comedian will reflect on his life, career and aspects of aging including forgetfulness, insomnia, endless doctor's appointments and humorous thoughts on looking at himself naked, publisher Henry Holt and Co said in a statement.

"While I still can remember my life, I thought I should get it down on paper," the When Harry Met Sally star says. "Turning 65 is something to celebrate and have fun with but also to write about all the great and tough times that got me here."

Crystal, who hosted the Oscars for the 9th time in February, published his first autobiography, Absolutely Mahvelous, in 1986 as well as several children's books. His 2005 Tony-winning Broadway show, 700 Sundays, which reflected upon memories of his father, was also translated into a book.
