Mary-Louise Parker, Bruce Willis, and John Malkovich in 'Red 2' (Summit Entertainment)


You may think "Red 2" is an action film, but it's really all about the romance.

Of course, since we're dealing with "retired and extremely dangerous" folks like Bruce Willis, John Malkovich, Anthony Hopkins, and Helen Mirren, such romantic interludes are bound to go awry. And, thus the characters dispense with the relationship advice.

"You have to take chances in a relationship," Mirren's Victoria insists. "You have to learn to share your feelings to evolve your relationship," Malkovich's Marvin declares. You get the gist.

But this got us wondering which cast member is the true guru of the bunch…

"Not John Malkovich," Anthony Hopkins told Yahoo! Movies without a moment of hesitation.

"Not John," Willis agreed. "I would go to the girls I think. I think that advice would be the most appropriate – what I should or should not do, what I can and can't do, what I should never do."

Mary-Louise Parker disagreed completely, emphasizing the benefits of turning to Malkovich.

"I have gone, actually, to both John and Bruce, who both give very good advice – very different advice, but very good advice," she confessed. "[John] actually gave me some quite profound advice. I think he's a very thoughtful person and a very eloquent man."

As for the sometimes Queen, Willis is her man.

"Although his character thinks that he's not good at romance, he actually is very good at romance because he's kind and thoughtful," she explained.
