Oscar-winning actor and comedian Robin Williams has died at age 63, according to police in Marin County, Calif.
What? No... you? Kidding me? ... f*** me... damn... like... is this a rumor? joke or just an April Fools?... Cant process it... at all..
Agreed, I can't process this. I keep reading the report (and yeah, it's official) and I can't seem to accept it. He did so many amazing things in both the real world and in films.
Man... exactly... that's the thing. Even though many newer film fanatics don't know much about him. But he is easily one of the greatest actors of all time. He has been in multiple classical films and was always a great guy. Never ever heard bad things about him... so humble... an what's tragic is also that he was a comedian. He worked to make us laugh... and he was depressed?... killed himself... whaaa... cannot yeah... I just don't even know what to write... struggling to really put words together even.
This is extremely sad news. I know he's gotten quite a bit of flack for maybe not being a great actor, or not being funny.... ... but I've always disagreed with that. He was hilarious, and tremendously gifted as an actor, in the right kind of roles. I'll really miss the guy. Was just watching him this afternoon in The Crazy Ones, which has such a nice talented cast, plus later tonight there was the Family Guy episode where Peter turned everybody into Robin Williams. We could use Peter Griffin right now. :'(
Sad sad sad... R.I.P. Robin...
I wander can the human being be happy? I see all these movie stars who seem to have it all kill themselves and ask myself this question. They have the money, fame and a family and are still not happy, what gives?
I don't really think 'depression' can be 'understood' by someone who has never experienced it. We could try to explain, but TBH, even for someone who IS depressed, it is sometimes hard to understand. It's always there though, so if you've got it, I don't think it will ever go away anymore. It's just floating beneath the surface, and occasionally it pops up and just drags you down.
I understand where you are coming from, but from my past depression experience, it is just a feeling of overwhelming sadness that you cannot shake away. There can be multiple reasons behind it, even the samllest thing can make a person fall into a deep depression. Honestly though, I'm not sure why Robin Williams was as depressed as he was, killing himself, yet I don't want to judge a person who has taken their own life. He had his reasons and obviously struggles with it for quite a long time, as well as sobriety. BUT, I do agree with your statement about having money, fame and everything. Even I cannot truly understand where the misery comes out of, yet the mind itself can cause issues out of nowhere...
I deal with depression to so I also know what it is like. The way I try to deal with it is by saying to myself that maybe if I had this or that that I wouldn't be so unhappy. So that is why I am still holding on atm. Maybe things will change for me maybe not I don't really know but I do hope that one day that I will be the happy person that I want to be.
this is such sad news. Some people thought it was a hoax at first.
The internet is exploding because of his death. The Wikipedia page of Robin Williams even crashed. I never seen any of his movies he was in. Can anyone recommend me some?
Aladdin, Hook, What Dreams May Come, Dead Poets, Good Morning Vietnam, Ms. Doubtfire, One Hour Photo...It's a long list.
The Disney movie Aladdin? oh, I've seen that, i didn't knew he did the voice of Aladdin
He's the voice of the Genie in the film. Also there's: Jumanji Patch Adams
I remember watching Ms.Doubtfire alot as a kid. We were kinda broke so we didn't own alot of movies. When i heard a second was in the planning stage even now at 23 it made me excited. Real sad to see the guy go. Especially after leaving such an imprint on my childhood. I didn't know he was so troubled either. :( He seemed like a genuinely happy guy, at least in his movies. Rest in peace Mr. Williams.
He's also done some great stand up, I don't remember the names of them but he had talent on a stage. There's one where he's obviously coked up and wearing hammer pants.... It's good stuff :D Also I think he was part of the Comic Relief thing from the 80's with Whoopi Goldberg and Billy Crystal.
Bicentennial Man really brought something new to film. His entire existence in film bought many new elements to film. Difficult to hear about his death today.
Good Morning, Vietnam Good Will Hunting Dead Poets Society The Fisher King
You might not know much about him, but let me tell you, he is one of the greatest actors of all time. He was truly a good guy, he was in the class of actors who could balance comedic films and dramas. Oscar-winning actor who can easily write his name next to stars like De Niro, Nicholson and many others. He has been in a number of classical films that will never be forgotten. Please watch some of his films, you will see how tragic it is to lose an actor whose sole reason for doing films was to put a smile on people's face... his films prove that.
If I'm not mistaken, they listed out all his films and he was in over 120 of them and 4 TV shows with countless appearances elsewhere. (Also he has 4 films coming out, 2 or 3 are in post production)
Watch world's greatest dad. It is a must
I'm probably alone in this but I really liked Insomnia where he plays a killer.
You're not alone. It was odd seeing him take on bad guy roles but he did an amazing job at that as well. I never would have pictured it but I was impressed.
So sad and tragic. Such a funny guy. RIP.
Wow one of my favorite actors of all time such a funny guy sad he went out the way he did R.I.P man crazy sh!t.
Very unfortunate r.i.p
Damn. This is terrible. I feel like a Robin Williams marathon. The Oscars YouTube channel just uploaded this: https://www.youtube.com/wat...
Such a bright spirit all the time, it's crazy to read this. I was hoping it was a hoax! It just kind of came out of no where :/
Haven't seen many of the films that he was in, especially in movies from the 2000's. Jumanji, Jack, Aladdin, Flubber, Insomnia, and The Butler were the only ones, but I'm just stunned by this news. Just so disappointing to hear, especially that it was supposedly a suicide. Never knew he dealt with substance abuse...Such a great talent he was, a shame it was cut short.
Very sad to hear :(
No!!!!!!!! One of the few actors I really liked and respected!
I enjoyed a lot of his movies. I heard he had depression problems but never would I thought he comment suicide because he don't look like the suicide type. Remember fame and richest never truly make you happy. May he rest in peace and live eternally in Heaven.
A huge loss really. One of the best ever comic/dramatic actors.
I cried for a long time earlier. I watched the Bicentennial Man (a film that gets a lot of unwarranted hate). It didn't help with the tears. My childhood cried and cried. Hook was the first live action film I saw at the cinema. I was 6.
I'll forever remember him as I first saw him as a kid: Peter Pan. Such a loss of talent. R.I.P. Mr. Williams. May you find your NeverLand.
Cocaine and depression are a bad mix. One of the last RW films that I watched was "World's Greatest Dad", which is kind of creepy, [spoilers] [spoilers] considering how the son dies. Obviously those were different conditions, but still. Not a bad film; I especially like the message at the end: "I used to think the worst thing in life was to end up all alone. It's not. The worst thing in life is ending up with people who make you feel all alone." [spoilers] [spoilers]
That was such a good film. I recommend it to anyone who hasn't seen it
That was his first movie and I thought he was brilliant as Popeye. I loved the movie when I was a kid and still love it today.
His early movies had a huge positive impact in my childhood, he will always be remembered as one of the great ones.
You just never know what some people are going through. It's a sad day when someone feels they need to take their own life.
Depression is an ugly thing...
Rest in peace
One of the greatest actors ever. RIP Robin. You will be missed.
Sad to see him go. RIP Robin.
R.I.P. I just cannot believe he's actually dead :'(
Oh captain, my captain. I have so many good memories involving his films and other work. He will be badly missed.
damn ill always remember him from flubber....there goes my child hood ...he had magic
He used comedy to deal with his depression. It seems that he had dealt with depression on and off most of his adult life. Such a sad thing for someone to have to go thru and the world around you doesn't have a clue. He's out there entertaining on the outside but we had no idea how he was feeling on the inside. RIP...we will miss yoiu
Hanged by his belt, and had cut wrists. Fucking hell.
