Seth Green: I had gorilla chat

Seth Green has joked he had discussions with a gorilla on the set of Old Dogs to make sure they got their tender scene right.

The Buffy star and the large primate snuggle up at one point in the Disney film, and Seth claimed they worked it out in advance.

"We talked at length, she and I, on how we wanted this scene to go, and what our real-life boyfriend or girlfriend would feel about the scene and how to keep it appropriate," Seth deadpanned.

He added: "I think we gave the people what they wanted."

Seth said it was an honour to work with Robin Williams and John Travolta in the film.

"These two guys are heroes of mine for my entire career and great examples of how to maintain longevity through great adversity," he gushed. "Both of them have had extreme rises and falls in their relevance or success, and always find their way back on top. It's very impressive to a young actor who hopes to be a life-long actor."

:: Old Dogs is out in UK cinemas today (Friday).
