Kelly Preston is a hot fox: Robin Williams

Sunday, February 7, 2010

NEW DELHI - Known for his witty and wicked remarks, Hollywood funnyman Robin Williams was in awe of actress Kelly Preston’s beauty, so much so that he describes her as a “hot fox”.

“Fox. She (Preston, 47) is hot. Hot,” said Williams. “But a wonderful woman, too. But sweet and once again like a comedienne who’s not afraid to try anything. And that’s cool. That’s nice when you have someone that way,” he added in a media interaction conducted via email.

He had teamed up with Preston for comedy “Old Dogs”.

Williams was also gaga over Preston’s star husband John Travolta and his friend of “thirty years” - who also stars in the movie.

“John is just like the closest thing to a human panda I think you’ll ever get. You know, just huggable. Constantly just tactile, like, ‘Get over here. Try this’. And I was like, ‘Damn man. You’re the brother I never had.’ It was kind of wonderful,” he said.

Distributed by Walt Disney Pictures, the 88-minute comedy has been directed by Walt Becker. The film, which released in the US Nov 25 last year, released here Friday.

Apart from Williams, Travolta and Preston, it also stars debutante Ella Bleu Travolta, Seth Green, Justin Long, Lori Loughlin and Matt Dillon.

The story revolves around two best friends (Williams and Travolta) who have their lives turned upside when they’re unexpectedly charged with the care of seven-year-old twins while on the verge of the biggest business deal of their lives.

Williams who is famous for his comedy quotient guarantees unlimited laughter with the movie.

“(It’s a) comedy and take home comedy. The trailer only has a couple of gags in it, which is wonderful because there is a lot of stuff that we couldn’t put in the trailer, obviously, because it’s a PG trailer, you can’t put it in. There’s more,” he said.

The actor also promises a message with the outing.

“The idea that I kind of learned after a long time. You don’t have to work so hard. You can take it easy and kind of enjoy this, ‘because they (your kids) are not young for long. (They are) much like sea monkeys, they’re gone,” he said.

“They grow really quick. But when they’re that age, seven, about from six to about 10, there’s kind of like the golden age. It’s kind of like you are something special to them, and then around 12 it’s like not as much. There’s something really special about that age, which is kind of wonderful,” he added.

The 58-year-old who underwent heart surgery last year is also thankful for getting a second chance.

“Being alive! After heart surgery, you really kind of dig that part. Breath. After coming through all that and you just (survive), it’s pretty amazing. Just to have a second shot is like, ‘Thank You’ pretty great,” he said.
