Robin Williams On Armstrong's Tour De France Bid: 'That Is Pretty Ballsy'
The Mrs. Doubtfire funnyman arrived in the country to watch the ninth stage of the famous race as competitors battled to complete the tough stretch from Saint Gaudens to Tarbes. And Williams took time out of cheering on Armstrong to pay tribute to the cancer survivor's determination to reclaim his crown as Tour de France's champion.
He told reporters, "He's a great friend and it's great to hang out with him. It's wild to see him back on the Tour. You'd think after seven wins he'd think 'c'est fini', but no, he is back for one more time. That is pretty ballsy. To race the Giro d'Italia and the Tour of California already this year, it's kind of great and he is doing it for many reasons which is wonderful to see."
Williams isn't Armstrong's only Hollywood pal to come and watch him from the sidelines - actor and Dodgeball co-star Ben Stiller supported the athlete in Marseilles last week.
