John Cleese has had a hair transplant.
The British comic revealed he had undergone the drastic procedure during a candid interview on a UK talk show.
The 69-year-old star admitted the treatment after being quizzed on his recent hip replacement.
He said on 'Richard and Judy's New Position': "As we're talking operations, since I saw you last I've had a hair transplant."
When asked why he deemed it necessary to choose such an extreme solution to his hair loss, John replied: "Because I have got a very strange shaped head. It's very pointy. And I don't like wearing wigs."
The 'Monty Python' star also discussed plans for a movie he is writing based around his ongoing divorce from third wife - psychotherapist Alyce Faye Eichelberger - called 'May Divorce Be With You'.
The interview is due to be broadcast at 8pm on Watch tomorrow (14.11.08).
John's bitter divorce could see him lose a £1.2 million New York apartment and a £2.5 million house in Holland Park, London.
His estranged wife is also demanding £900,000 a year and half his earnings since 1992, claiming she is used to "being entertained by royalty in castles".
John recently said: "I think marriages should be like dog licences. You should have to renew marriage licences every five years, unless you have children."
