What was it like?
"It was good. It's weird. They're unpredictable. But very
respectful. They said they liked 61* [the HBO baseball movie
Crystal produced], and were hoping that I would do another movie
with Robert De Niro. That's what one of them said. I thought they
were very smart. They asked me why Meg and I had never done a
sequel to When Harry Met Sally."
Do you ever travel with your
"One year we spent Christmas with Gary Shandling and Robin Williams
on Maui, and we went to The Plantation House Restaurant. The
service was slow, which can happen in Hawaii. And we went into the
kitchen, just joking around, to see where the food was. Finally,
the food came out, except Robin stayed in the kitchen because he
had an audience. He came out a half hour later."
Where do you go for the big-deal
"Merriman's. It's a drive up near the volcano. Sometimes there's
even snow on the ground. Yeah, you know they can ski in Hawaii.
They ski in Mauna Kea. There may be some snow now, up high, on the
volcano. And that's always fun to watch while you're in a bathing
suit. Merriman's is like going to somebody's house. It has a lot of
good fish, but clams in black-bean sauce is the big deal there, and
it's really good."
Do you drink the local
"Oh, yeah. That's one thing I do do. I will drink a local-type
drink, like a mai tai. If you start singing Hawaiian music, you
know you've had a great mai tai. And if you start wearing those
Hawaiian shirts, you know you've had a good mai tai."
