Henry Winkler calls The Kardashian’s – “charming, warm, respectful, lovely people.”

So I saw a photo of Kim Kardashian with your daughter Zoe!
-That’s because my daughter, before they were THE Kardashians and they were just the Kardashians, two lovely girls (Kourtney and Kim) went to school with Zoe and they were good friends and continue to be so today.

So are you surprised that she became so famous?
-It’s fantastic for her and this is America. It surprised me but here you had two very beautiful girls. They’re very charming, warm, respectful, lovely people. A lot of people knew them before and I’m sure every one of them had the same impression. They are very, very nice girls.

So do you think they get a bad rap in the press?
-You know what? Bette Davis said, ‘I don’t care what you say about me as long as you spell my name right.’

And your kids grew up with Jonah Hill.
-Jonah Hill was in my house starting from the 5th grade. I’m so proud of him. You know he makes prank calls. He is the King of prank calls and has made them before and after he was a star from my living room and I’m telling you it is something to behold because as brilliant as he is on-screen you cannot breathe when he’s on the phone.

Henry Winkler has two new Hank Zipzer books out and he’s going to shoot a pilot with his son and son-in-law.
