Speaking on Go Radio, the 53-year-old explained that working with Scots has led to Williams using a Scottish accent for Mrs. Doubtfire.

Paul said, “It was the best gig in the world because there were so many lines to learn.

“You were making it up, just grunting and groaning and Robin Williams was a caveman.

“It took two weeks to shoot and he was the sweetest guy, he was really cool.

“The next movie he did was Mrs. Doubtfire and that’s why Mrs. Doubtfire has a Scottish accent.”
