Sigourney Weaver wants a robot butler after starring in new movie Chappie.
The actress’ new film revolves around a police droid reprogrammed to feel and think like a human – and she hopes the movie will inspire boffins to create really helpful, thoughtful robots for the home.
The star says, “I’m sure you could program a robot to do all kinds of useful things. I think they’re trying to create a butler robot for people, which would be useful. I’d like a cheerful robot, for company… ‘Would you like a cup of tea?’ That’s the kind of robot I would want!
“That’s my level; not very destructive but lovable.”
Be sure to look out for FanBolt’s review of Chappie, coming later this week.
You can catch the film when it hits theaters March 6, 2015.
