Always up for a good laugh, NCIS star Wilmer Valderrama accepted a challenge with Men’s Health to address his critics by responding to comments and questions on social media. 

In the hilarious video, Wilmer Valderrama shared his thoughts about one of his characteristics that seems to be attracting attention – his nostrils. “‘You have such beautiful nostrils’ I cannot disagree,” Valderrama says with a laugh. “I wish I could disagree and be like, ‘Oh my God they’re so average. They’re like average nostrils.’ But they’re not average.”

Wilmer Valderrama then proclaims, “Um, it’s a gift. And I wish I could give you a meal program or some kind of workout to help get to where I’m at, but unfortunately, you need to earn that.”

In a 2019 interview with Entertainment Tonight, Wilmer Valderrama discusses NCIS’s legacy and success.

Wilmer, who joined the series in 2016 as special agent Nick Torres, reveals that he believes the cast and crew are keeping the long-running series strong. “I think the people [are] what keeps the engine going,” he says. “I think that audiences can see that something on set is working and that people like coming to work and they’re still trying.”

Wilmer Valderrama also discusses his relationship with Mark Harmon, who plays one of the show’s main characters, Leroy Jethro Gibbs.

“Mark is someone that leads with kindness and his energy is beautiful. We have quite a bromance going on, him and I.”

NCIS was renewed for its 19th season this past spring. The series, along with its spin-offs NCIS: Los Angeles and NCIS: Hawai’i are set to premiere this fall on CBS.

Wilmer Valderrama Talks Potential ‘That ‘70s Show’ Movie

Wilmer Valderrama also mentions to the media outlet there could be a chance of a That ’70 Show movie. “We have had conversations about a That’s ‘70s movie,” he admits. “And we have had a conversation about, ‘Can this be real? Can it happen?’ We’re up for it.” But he notes that nothing is in the works right now.

Wilmer Valderrama played Fez, a foreign exchange student, on the hit sitcom from 1998 to 2006.

He goes on to jokingly state, “Everybody is excited to hang out together again on set, that’s one fact. I will probably have to relearn how to say my accent. I will probably have to relearn how to talk like a freak.”

In regards to his future plans, Wilmer Valderrama adds that he’s not trying to change too much.

“I gotta say that I am very happy with my life. [At] this very moment, I feel like it’s so interesting. You work so far for so long and you feel like all of a sudden you’re starting over again. And in my career, specifically in my personal life, I am very happy where I am at.”
