Jimmy Fallon covers the April, Style Bible, issue of GQ magazine.  Inside his interview with the mag the ‘Late Night’ host chats about topics like working with Stephen Colbert, laughing during SNL skits, the possibility of taking Jay Leno’s spot on “The Tonight Show” and standing out as a kid.

Check out some highlights from his interview below:

On standing out from the rest of the kids in the neighborhood: “Yeah, the cool crowd was always beyond my grasp. Like, my parents had a fence, a chain-link fence, and my sister and I were not allowed outside it. I was only allowed to ride my back in my backyard. Like Gus the polar bear at the zoo? That was me. Kids would say, ‘What are you doing, man? Come out.’ I was like, ‘I can’t.’ We got a rope swing. On a tree. We had to wear football helmets to ride the swing. Kids could see us. They would pull up on their bikes so they could watch the Fallon kids, so weird. You know, ‘Why are you wearing football helmets?’ We’re like, ‘So we don’t hit our heads!'”

On the possibility of hosting “The Tonight Show”: “I mean, in the nicest way, who really cares? In the nicest way. It would be great, sure, I guess. I’d love it, but it’s not on my mind. I’m in no rush to do anything. I’m kind of a boring character in that book. I’m not in a fight with Jay or Conan, or any of them. I don’t have that story.”

On the experience he tries to offer for viewers of “Late Night”: “On Late Night, it’s like we’re all in on the joke. That’s what I wanted it to be. I’m not doing something sneaky. Inside jokes, I don’t like those. We can all ride together, and everyone’s on the same thing going, ‘Aha, I know where you’re going here.’ And if we get weird, everyone knows, ‘Okay, we’ll go for that little ride of being weird.’ Or if I go, okay, I’m going to try to be Neil Young and sing ‘Pants on the Ground.’ We’re all just going to ride it out, laugh, and we’re going to be like, ‘This is so silly,’ but it’s happening. It’s…a happening. That’s such a ’60s word. But that’s what it is. It’s intimate and we’re all having the same experience. A happening.”

On collaborating with Colbert: “And Colbert, by the way, is so underrated to me I don’t even know. Can you even understand he’s doing a character for how many years now? This is unheard of in comedy. He’s doing something that people will talk about forever. We did a whole bit where we were BFFs, and we became enemies and we hated each other. And then we sang Fievel the mouse, ‘Somewhere Out There.’ Looking out the window, remembering that we were best friends. Such a smart guy. I love him so much. He’s one of my favorite guys to play with.”

On his “SNL” laughing habit: “Definitely a comedy foul. Lorne didn’t like it. I didn’t like it. But the sketches I laughed in became popular. At the end, it was like the audience was waiting. The studio started to shake. Like an earthquake. I couldn’t hold it in anymore. Torture.”
