Comedian/Actor Robin Williams Dead of Suicide

Recommended Posts

Just heard this on my local radio news station. Just came over a few minutes ago. More info will be available soon I'm sure. He was 63. Supposedly of asphyxiation. Discovered this morning just before noon. First reports were by Drudge Report and Hollywood Reporter. A had battled depression and sobriety problems over the last few years! So sad and such a loss with so much talent! :angel:

I wonder if it was an accident or intentional? No matter, it's a huge loss and not just for his loved ones. He was so talented.

Hard to believe.

I thought it might be a hoax upon first hearing the news. :faint1: Very surprised indeed...he was the last guy I would think would kill himself. R.I.P.

Just goes to show--you never know what kind of demons someone may be struggling with behind closed doors. Depression and Robin Williams seems like such an odd combination... RIP

Breaks my heart.

One of my favorite comedians.

His '78 Off The Wall on HBO remains one of the funniest hours ever captured on film.

RIP.

RIP

This must be #3 after James Garner and Casey Kasem.

Not sure about that. Those two passed over three weeks ago. Usually, they are close in time. Doesn't matter really as losing Robin Williams is such a great loss and especially since he took his own life and the loved ones he left behind! How were things so bad that you can leave so much hurt to those who loved you so much? Doesn't make sense. This is too common of an occurrence with many celebrities and those who aren't!

I just heard. I'm very sad to hear this. Rest In Peace to a true comic genius..

I don't throw around the word genius. He was without a doubt one.

Me too. Seeing Robin Williams at the Universal Amphitheatre in 1979 (this must have been around the time of "Reality...What a Concept") was one of the funniest nights of my life. He'll firstly be remembered for his comedic skills and wacky comedies, naturally, but some of my most fondly remembered Robin Williams films are the quieter offbeat ones like "Moscow on the Hudson" and "The World According to Garp".

Forgot about "Garp" Strider. That's a good one. Always liked "The Birdcage" with Nathan Lane as well. One of his best moments.

Phillip Seymour Hoffman had just shocked the world and now this. I guess you can have all the money in the world and still not be happy in your life. Treating depression is a very tough thing to do right.
