HOLLYWOOD — Albert Brooks is taking the aftermath of terrorism as hard as anyone in America. In particular, the threats of more plane hijackings frighten him.
“I never gleefully ran on to a plane — ever,” he tells The Sun. “But I don’t feel so comfrotable doing anything right now. This is the beginning of something, not the middle or end of something. Our complacency is over.”
At home in L.A. with his wife, Kimberly Shlain, Brooks focuses on his two infant children, three-year-old Jacob Eli and one-year-old Claire Elizabeth.
“What you do is just try to give these kids as many laughs as you can every day,” he says. “The world’s always strange and it’s going to be stranger when they get a hold of it.”
