Angela Lansbury Video Interview MR. POPPER'S PENGUINS slice

With director Mark Waters new family film, Mr. Popper’s Penguins, opening today, I was recently able to speak with Angela Lansbury.  In the film, she plays the owner of Tavern on the Green in New York City and Jim Carrey plays a divorced New York real estate developer who wants to purchase the property.

During the interview, we talked about how she got involved in the film, how much of herself did she bring to her character, did she get a lifetime pass for Disneyland after the success of  Beauty and the Beast, and a lot more.  Hit the jump to watch.  Mr. Popper’s Penguins also stars Carla Gugino, Clark Gregg and Madeline Carroll.

And if you missed them, here’s my video interviews with Jim Carrey and Carla Gugino for Mr. Popper’s Penguins.
