Robin Williams commits suicide.
Actor Robin Williams was found dead in his apartment after an apparent suicide, Marin County Police have said. He was 63 years old.
Robin was recently in rehab again after his long-term struggles with booze and drugs. The county coroner said the death was suspected suicide by asphyxiation. According to his rep he had been “battling severe depression”.
This is the worst news for so many reasons. Mrs Doubtfire, Jumanji, What Dreams May Come, Dead Poets Society, Good Will Hunting, Aladdin, Toys and Night at the Museum being just some of them.
It always makes me super fucking sad when comedians who struggle with depression. It super sucks that so many hilarious people who make it their life mission to make other people laugh always seem to have this emptiness inside of them. Williams is one of many comedic actors who’ve had a high profile struggle with depression over the years.
Robin was one of those actors that everyone liked and always kept his ass out of the gossip columns even though he clearly had substantial issues with drugs and booze.
Let’s remember Robin Williams with his brilliant performance as Mrs Doubtfire, aka me cooking any time of the week.
