Robin Williams has been acting a little more ‘green’ lately; especially in light of his new movie, Happy Feet, hitting theaters and becoming a massive hit. Williams voices one of the characters in the film which draws on themes related to global warming. Williams recently said that film,
“…contained a serious message that would prompt parents to talk to their kids about environmental and conservation issues.”
On the political front, Williams — having recently played a President himself in ‘Man of the Year’ — chided Bush on his policy regarding global warming. From the article,
“Speaking at the UK premiere of Happy Feet, an animated movie in which Williams is voicing a penguin, the actor accused Bush of not accepting global warming as a reality.
“There is global warming. I know our president doesn’t agree. (Bush thinks) ‘Global Warming. Oh just go inside for a bit’,” Contactmusic quoted him as saying.”
While Will Ferrell might have really summed it up with his spoof on Bush and the environment, it’s nice to see other comedians like Williams throwing in his two cents as well.
