Media mogul Simon Cowell wants a pet penguin after falling in love with the flightless birds from watching Jim Carrey children’s film ‘Mr Popper’s Penguins’.
Cowell, 52, has decided that he wants one of the birds for his own after becoming a fan of them in the film, which sees Carrey’s character’s home get invaded by Gentoo penguins, reported Showbiz spy.
“Watching ‘Mr Poppers Penguins’ again. I love this film. I really do want a pet penguin (sic),” he tweeted.
Cowell has often spoken about his love for animals and was thrilled earlier this year when 17-year-old Ashleigh Butler and her performing dog Pudsey won ‘Britain’s Got Talent’ as he believed they deserved it the most.
