Mr. T is adjusting his image, according to an interview by the Associated Press, and is removing his signature gold chains after having spent time with Katrina victims. His quotes as usual are just amazing:
"I saw some, I call it 'sorry celebrities.' They'll go down there and hook up with the people to take a photo-op. I said, 'How disgusting.' If you're not going to go down there with a check and a hammer and a nail to help the people, don't go down there."When questioned on his potentially contradictory image of a tough guy with a heart of, well, gold, Mr. T gives a classic response:
"Yes, I am qualified to beat people up. But I am pretty intelligent,"He's great on late-night shows too, so watch if you ever get the chance. The interviewers don't know what to make of him and the result is always bewildering and hilarious. He walks circles around the host with his wit and even charm, and his personality dominates the set.
