Terry Gross: Can I make a confession?
Robin Williams: Yes. You’re not wearing anything, but that’s OK. You’re in the radio studio, and if you’re wearing—if you’re in a thong, that’s wonderful. A thong in your heart, that’s OK. No, no, please, confess.
Gross: Well, before we did the interview, I had no idea what to expect. And I wasn’t sure you’d give me a straight answer to anything. And I just want to say thank you for actually having a talk.
Williams: You’re welcome. Well, it’s good to talk like that, you know?
Gross: And for being really funny at the same time.
Williams: Well, that’s probably what life is. You know, you can do both. You can talk and be funny. And you see it wasn’t that zany. It was just conversation.
Williams, speaking to Fresh Air in 2006.
