Went through penis reduction 

Tom Selleck interviewed the "Late Night Show with Conan O'Brien." There in that interview, he talked about his disease and many more. 

The interviewer Conan started the interview by asking about his disease. He replied, saying that he suffered from hernia disease and had to go under surgery. 

At that time, he was about a film his movie Elsenhower. Three weeks before the shooting of that movie started, he suffered from that disease. 

But then he said that it wasn't the actual reason he went to the hospital. He revealed the truth, saying that he went to the hospital to reduce his penis. 

He reached the point the age where he felt that his penis was enough. That statement was hilarious. 

He didn't have to stay in that hospital for a long time. He went to the hospital, and there he was, given anesthesia so that he could not feel the trauma. 

He was half-conscious during that surgery, and when he woke up and came out of the surgery room, the attendees over there were strangely looking at him.

After hearing Tom's interview, the interviewer was sure that Tom did have his penis reduction. 

Tom opened up that had scars, but he was uncomfortable showing it to everyone. He then talked about his movie Elsenhower

He was there in that show to promote two of his performance. In one of his projects, he had a mustache, but he doesn't have it in another. 

While he was giving the interview, he had a mustache, so the interviewer was curious to know how he managed to do that. 

Tom then shaved his half mustache to explain how he managed to do his two projects, which was very shocking. 

Tom celebrated his birthday having airline food

Tom gave an interview for Rachael Ray Show in 2020, where he talked about his age, birthday, and celebration.

He turned 75 at the time and had no shyness in telling it in the media. The interviewer revealed that she has always cheated people with her birthday and age. 

But Tom has never lied to anyone about his age. Indeed, he has no problem revealing his age to anyone. 

He expressed that when he was 25 years old, he looked older than his age, but his brain was that of 15 years old. 

He also said that although he is now 75, or even though he has been an old guy for a long time, he still is s 17-year-old guy inside his mind. 

He has not changed a bit in his behavior and thinking. He is still the same Tom many years back. The interviewer also agreed with the statement of the actor.

Moreover, Tom revealed that he had his birthday celebrated with the airline food. 

He was traveling to Ranch on a flight on his birthday, where he just had the food that Airlines gave him. 

It was all he did on his birthday. But it was a worthwhile trip for him as he was up to see his wife on the Ranch. 

He also has no luxurious wishes for his birthday. He expressed that he just wants a little dinner time with his family, including his brother, sister, son, daughter, and other closest family members. 

He also said that he hated any present as he already had many things he bought with his own money.
