Here is the highlight of his interview during the promotion:
Why he turned face in 2003:
“I looked around and saw who was sitting in the audience and said, 'You know what, I proactively need to change.' And it was for the greater good.”
Older fans booing him:
“I totally get it. I don't necessarily spend my time watching programs that 6 to 10-year-old kids enjoy, so I get the need for different racy comedy and story lines. But at the same time I don't want to offend anyone in our audience so I do what I do to the best of my ability, and I actually really enjoy being able to be a real-life superhero and an aspirational character both in live entertainment and animation films like Flintstones.”
