Robin Williams has a gay dog.

The 60-year-old actor and wife Susan Schneider currently live in Tiburon, a town on the outskirts of San Francisco and the 'Happy Feet 2' star loves spending time outside of his home with his pet.

He said: "I've done the ranch thing, now I'm doing the water thing where I go kayaking and paddleboarding and take to the woods for hours on my bike. It's my thinking time and very therapeutic.

"I also have a gay rescue pug called Leonard, who I take for walks because I am very secure in my sexuality. He has a boyfriend and they are planning to adopt a Siamese kitten together. We're very modern."

Robin - who has sons Zachary, 28, and Cody, 19, and daughter Zelda, 22, from his previous marriages - longs to have grandchildren and says he plans to be a "sweet and forgetful" grandparent.

He said: "I plan on being a sweet, forgetful, 'Oh God, where's the baby? What have I done with the baby?' sort of grandfather.

"I love kids but they are a tough audience. When I used to read to Zelda in thrilling accents and act out the stories, she would sigh and tell me to give it a rest and read in a normal voice."
