    Fuck. Wasn't there some recent news story about how he went back to rehab for preventative measures? I remember a thread here where someone (sput??) said he always gave the impression that he needed to keep talking because if he stopped, he might have to face his demons. That really seemed accurate to me. I always figured he'd succumb to his troubles, which is too bad. I loved him. Brilliantly funny man, with heart and sensitivity underneath his zany appearance. He could be ridiculous and absurd, but he could also pull off heartfelt performances with serious weight. The Dead Poet's Society was one of my favourite films for a time. RIP.

    This one has hit me so very hard. During my daughter's fight with addiction, I turned to things that would make me laugh and Robin Williams was the one that made me laugh when I thought I couldn't. Just so very sad. I know he was battling the same demons my daughter was. My prayers go out to his family.

    I'm so sad. I met him during the filming of Awakening. The scene at the beach with rock was filmed down the block from my house. He spent hours signing autographs and taking photos. He even changed the line he was supposed to say, omitting fuck because of all the kids watching.

    Damn, that's too sad, he was my age. He battled a lot of demons in his life, the thought that he may have killed himself is impossible to take. RIP at last Robin, you were an original and gave so many of us lots of laughs.

    Isn't that funny? I saw it on Facebook too, but came here to make sure it was a legit story.

    What an awful place to feel like suicide is your only escape.

    RIP Robin - you brought color to my childhood.

    I know he had his demons but he had gone back to rehab in recent years and just got remarried. He seemed to want to get better so bad. Jesus.
    I loved Mork and Mindy! He was so talented.

    I'll admit, this one is hitting me pretty hard He had so many demons and it seems like he tried everything to fight them.

    I am profoundly sad. This guy was a comic genius. But he had so many demons. May he rest in peace.

    One of the most original comics out there. And a fantastic actor. And the hairiest man I ever saw. Rest in peace brother.

    I had the Mork and Mindy board game, and wore my Rainbow suspenders to school almost every damn day of 4th grade.
