'I'm not the best singer in the world and I'm not the best actor – I know that for sure – but I'm good at what I do and it's because I've worked really hard to get there.'After the huge successes of Knight Rider and Baywatch, come the turn of the century, Hasselhoff was dismayed to see his stock fall.
David Hasselhoff stepped out with fiancee Hayley Roberts on Monday after filing legal documents seeking to end ,000-a-month alimony payments to ex-wife Pamela Bach.
The 65-year-old actor and his Welsh fiancée Hayley, 37, looked happier than ever as they enjoyed a spot of retail therapy in Calabasas, California.
' I replied: 'I never thought the President of the United States would utter the two syllables Bay-watch!
' and he laughed so hard, we could hardly run.'Everyone has heard of Baywatch – in the Nineties, it had more than a billion viewers a week in 142 countries – and everyone has heard of Hasselhoff, who once held the Guinness World Record for being the most-watched man on TV, thanks not just to the aforementioned hit show, but to his lead turn in Eighties series Knight Rider.
They divorced in 2006 and he paid ,000 per month in alimony support before getting the amount cut in half last year.
The former America's Got Talent judge claimed in court documents that Pamela has displayed a 'failure to make any efforts to become self supporting, contribute to her own support, or even make any efforts to gain job skills.'The actor in court documents reported paying more than .5 million in spousal support to Pamela.
It has also led to his latest movie, Killing Hasselhoff.
It stars Ken Jeong from The Hangover as a struggling nightclub owner who decides to kill David Hasselhoff – his entry in a celebrity death pool – in order to secure the 7,000 prize money.
David's first marriage was to actress Catherine Hickland - who guest-starred on his show Knight Rider - from 1984 to 1989.
Catherine is now married to the late Carrie Fisher's brother Todd Fisher.
Anyway,' he adds with some finality, 'that's way in the past.'What is clear from the film is that not only can The Hoff laugh at himself, but that he isn't afraid of alluding to the more troubling periods of his past.
