( askmen.com ) The 'Lord of the Rings' actor - who voices the character Mumbles in new animated film 'Happy Feet' about a group of Emperor penguins - admits he has developed a fondness for the flightless birds.

He said: "Penguins are cute, but they also have something kind of human about them, like their social structure and their sense of love. I think they are really adorable."

Wood admits he loved working with Robin Williams and Brittany Murphy on 'Happy Feet', and was amazed by how many different voices Robin could come up with.

He added: "Robin is amazing. There seems to be a million voices in that man's head, and they come out a lot. He's a force of nature. To be able to work with him was an honour."
