Tony Shalhoub’s Good Luck Ritual: Washing Undies But Not Wearing Them

LOS ANGELES (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Tony Shalhoub has won numerous awards for his role as Adrian Monk on the USA network show, Monk, but he still gets nervous this time of year.

Shalhoub is nominated for both a Golden Globe and a Screen Actors Guild Award, but admits he still stresses over the possibility of winning.

As he puts it, “I stress myself to sleep the night before over what I’ll say if I win, and then I end up writing a few words in the bathroom just before the award is announced.”

As bizarre as it sounds. The ritual obviously works, but he jokes he has another good luck ritual that is also paying off.

In his words, “I wash my underwear before the show, but then I don’t wear it.”

New episodes of Monk debut on January 19.
