This is one of those "deaths" that just hit you up side the head. Michael Jackson was expected. Whitney Houstan was expected. But this, WOW. I just didn't see it.

Spending the last 2 or so Hours just watching clips and remembering the Movies it really hits home and it really hits to the gut that a guy like this would do this.

Who was he really doing this to. Himself?? His ex Wives?? Surely he didn't understand what it did to People who never really knew him. Or did he??

Depression I will truly nevery understand no matter what influence of drugs, alcohal, prescription drugs (I will never take Prozac or any other derivitave).

Someone else in this thread mentioned the Pharmesudical drugs he took for depression and maybe that is what actuall caused all of this.

At the end of the day, I will be watching Robin Williams films to only understand the Person he wanted me to see. The People who screwed Him over, you will have to live with yourself.

If he was severely depressed, he saw no way out of it. Death seemed the only option. It's an escape. Being that depressed is overwhelming. It's torture to them. It becomes too much to bear. Hard to explain if you don't even understand depression. It's beyond depression. Severely painful.

He chose to end his life. Not because he wanted to die, but because he did not want to live.

As for anti-depressants playing a role, if he was on them. Perhaps. They are known to do that. Also, whatever he was addicted to, if he's in rehab quitting it, the withdrawals can cause severe depression and suicidal thoughts. Your thoughts can become very distorted. It's most likely a combination. We don't really know the details yet.

May you be at peace now Robin
We will miss you.
Thank You

I was here earlier. With my condolences and deepest wishes to the family..

I remember this, and will always stick with me.. When Superman needed a friend.

In my childhood, and adult life..

For all that he did, and everything he was.
And now he lives on forever more in our hearts and minds.

Mrs doubtfire.. one of the funniest movies ever
damn now i feel like a kid again

I completely understand where you're coming from on this. I'm currently in my middle 30's and I remember back in 1994 at the age of 17 when Mrs. Doubtfire was released on VHS. My sister who is 4 years older than I had just given birth less than a year before to my nephew, and almost every night we would watch Mrs. Doubtfire while the baby was sleeping.

We did this for months, so it got to the point that we both new the dialogue and could lip sync the entire film. LOL I just posted to her Facebook about an hour ago a still shot of the scene in the movie when he is at the restaurant dressed as Mrs. Doubtfire and as he is drinking the white wine his false teeth fall out and he says "Just needs a little bit of adhesive." cracked us up every time.

Good times, good memories, this is how I will remember Robin.

I don't think it's a hoax if a sheriff spoke about his death.
It was on All news outlets. They would not run this story all day if they hadn't confirmed it

a reply to: violetYour right.

I was referring to a hoax from 2012. I removed the links and post I made, as it was not proper for this thread here.
So I did a re edit, of something that should be remembered. ^^^^^

Not some stupid hoax from 2012.
I was so upset by this, that I did not look at the post date on the page I was reading. Plus it is late, and a friend linked me something, without doing the foot work, and I was able to nip that in the bud, before I looked like a total tool, spreading dis info. *My bad* Fixed it.

But if you like, you can google Robin Williams hoax 2012, Goldie Hawn. To see why I was mislead. Won't link it here out of respect to the man.

This is so sad and tragic.

One of the funniest comedian and actor of our time had depression.
I saw so many interviews of him on talk shows. He was always laughing and joking.

He had the Russian accent down to perfection. Always made me laugh.
I never would've guessed he was so unhappy in reality.

I loved watching his movies.

R.I.P Robin Williams

Robin was one of the funniest people alive, in tv shows, on the big screen and in standup comedy. His unique talent simply cannot be duplicated. I hope his soul is at rest now and we know that all his wonderful, heart felt work will live on forever! It always helps me cope with a sometimes darkened reality. Bless you Robin Williams, much love and respect!

The news brought a tear to my eye. I can honestly say, without exaggerating, that no other actor with the possible exception of Patric Steward has had a deeper impact on the way I perceive life. I will sorely miss his genius.

A tremendous loss and it saddens me deeply his life ended in this way.

It goes to show that you should always ask someone how they are coping because despite the jokes and the smiles they could be crying on the inside, and people who suffer from depression should never suffer in silence.

But I will always remember the good times, I remember seeing tapes of his stand up and his interviews where he talked about the shenanigans he and Billy Connelly would get up to back in the day, and being an 80's child I remember him fondly from Hook, Aladdin, and Mrs Doubtfire. His was great in serious roles too, like Good Will Hunting and One Hour Photo.

Thank you Robin, I'm sorry you had to leave so soon.

Never know what goes through the mind of an artistic genius like Williams.
Maybe he read about Krusty the clowns planned suicide to avoid the IRS?

Didnt Christopher Reeve almost bankrupt Robin Williams by emotionally blackmailing him into paying for absurd medical research?

I read that Reeve and Williams made a pact in University they would help each other out if they fell on hard times, but Reeve took it to the next level when he fell off a horse and broke his back.

Reeve may have emotionally blackmailed Williams into paying for stem cell research to grow Crocodile DNA to replace parts of his spine. From what I read it lost Williams most of his fortune and he turned to drink and drugs.

Will try and find the link.

Agreed, what a shock. It really baffles me as to how such an amazing man with kids could get to a point of taking his own life.

Brings back memories of a young guy I knew back in Scotland who committed suicide only for his father to hang himself a couple of years later. The poor Dad never got over his first sons death, even though he left behind a wife and two other kids. Alcohol and severe depression played a big part in it too.

A real shame no one could save Robin Williams before it was too late. A very real person who touched the hearts of millions, including me and everyone I've ever met.

I read that an agent for Reeves said Williams paying his medical bills wasn't true.

Apparently he might have been under financial stress which could have caused depression.

A talented comedian and actor, touched the life of many.

Robin Williams may have to say “HELLOOOOO!” to bankruptcy. According to (h/t New York Post), the actor is in some financial peril after going through two expensive divorces and is selling his house to help pay his debts. “There are bills to pay. My life has downsized, in a good way,” he told Parade magazine. “Divorce is expensive. I used to joke they were going to call it ‘all the money,’ but they changed it to ‘alimony,’” he added. “It’s ripping your heart out through your wallet. Are things good with my exes? Yes. But do I need that lifestyle? No.” Mr. Williams, who’s starred in such movies as “Mrs. Doutbfire” and “Dead Poets Society” as well as TV sitcom “Mork & Mindy,” is taking on a new role as an ad executive in “The Crazy Ones,” a new TV comedy set to premiere on CBS next week

Robin Williams Forced to Sell His House and File for Bankruptcy

17 September 2013 4:15 AM, PDT | | See recent Worst Previews news »

Robin Williams has worked in Hollywood for over 35 years. But after an impressive career, the Oscar-winning actor has announced that he's on the verge of bankruptcy. He blames his financial situation on two costly divorces. Williams divorced his first wife in 1988 and ended his second marriage with Marsha Garces in 2008, after 19 years. "Divorce is expensive. It's ripping your heart out through your wallet," he told Parade magazine. The 62-year-old actor is now forced to sell his $35 million house to help cover some of his debt. But Williams is returning to TV is a show called "The Crazy Ones," which co-stars Sarah Michelle Gellar and will debut on September 26th. "The idea of having a steady job is appealing," he added. "There are bills to pay. My life has downsized, in a good way. I'm selling the ranch up in Napa. I just can't afford it anymore." In 2011, Williams married a third time.
