Simon Cowell: I used to wear make-up
Simon Cowell admits he used to skip school
The X Factor and Britains Got Talent judge says he used foundation to make himself look pale and sick.
I didnt like school so I had a trick I put my mothers white make-up on, he confesses. And then he'd hold a hot drink against his forehead to make it seem like he had a fever.
Id put a cup of tea on my head, call my mum and dad and say: "Not well, feel my temperature,"' he tells US chat show host Jay Leno.
Dad always believed me, Mum didnt.
And cheeky Simon, 48, also says he used to kiss himself in preparation for wooing female classmates. 'I practised in the mirror,' he admits.
