Gargamel (Hank Azaria) isn’t exactly a nice guy, and besides his lifelong battle with The Smurfs, our demented villain doesn’t treat cats with the gentlest of ease.  The actor recalls a deleted sequence in The Smurfs which has Gargamel looking for a robe and casting a cat attack spell on a street vendor.

Although he does throw a cat in The Smurfs, Azaria actually has no problem with felines.  “I have lived with several cats,” says Azaria.  “I don’t dislike cats, but I prefer dogs.  Girlfriends have had cats and then you end up becoming the daddy to the cat I guess.”

The Smurfs, co-starring Neil Patrick Harris and Jayma Mays, is now playing nationwide.
