John Key, 55, is the former prime minister of New Zealand from November 2008 to December 2016, when he resigned from both the prime ministership and leader of the center-right New Zealand National Party.
A March 2015 video of Key trying to hammer a nail — and missing — rapidly went viral as a GIF.
Key said: “All that proves is I’m never any good at woodwork. I did tell them I can’t do this very well.”
Asked if he’s a handyman around the house, Key said: “No, (my wife) Bronagh gets a man in, don’t worry about that.” (The Australian)
Born on August 9, 1961, Key was 53 years old when he tried, but failed, at hammering that nail — a task that many women easily do.
Key is one of the wealthiest people in New Zealand, with an estimated wealth of NZ$50 million (US$35.7 million).
