Robin Williams is so fed up with his hairy body he's turned to a star of American TV show Queer Eye For The Straight Guy for advice on how to get rid of it.

The Mrs Doubtfire comedian has always mocked himself for being hirsute, but now admits he'd love to have a smooth chest.

He says to Carson Kressley in American magazine US WEEKLY, "I'm basically the Queer Eye poster child. Hello, manscaping! How can my body hair be trimmed down without a backhoe?"

Kressley responds, "No need to rent heavy equipment, Robin, Manscaping can be easy, fun and painless (well, not totally painless).

"But don't overdo it: Simply clip the chest hair with a beard trimmer. For back hair, waxing or laser removal is best."
