  1. Truly..I’m very shocked about this..who would have expected for him to die like this?

    The news said he committed suicide. If that was the case,it just goes to show people how much we really don’t know people.. Sometimes, the people who make others laugh the most hold a world of troubles in their lives. Maybe, his problems with drugs bugged him..I don’t know..but he was troubled by something. I remembered first seeing him on Mork and Mindy and he just got big from there.He will be missed.

    1. It seems that a lot of trouble people like Williams and Kurt Cobain become famous to find some sense of self worth but I think being in the limelight only exacerbates the problem. Some have found out the hard way that if you have emotional issues Hollyweird is the LAST place you should find fulfillment.

  2. In many of his photos he does have a struggled smile. And his eyes always revealed a troubled man. People thought to just look at it as a “Robin Williams” expression and not think too much other than that was his unique facial expression. Now we know that expression was indeed of a troubled man. The fact that the foul wasn’t ruled out is something else to look at and consider before assuming further.

  3. The first time I became familiar with Robin Williams was in Mrs. Doubtfire funny stuff, such a shame he’s gone.

  4. ..As a fellow comedienne, I know first hand how some of the funniest people can often hide the most pain (and deal/with or cope) with it in their lives as a way to mask the frustration that lives within their own personal lives, as I have met many a brilliant performer who has often indulged in this type of behavior in this way as well.. That being said, I love Robin Williams and am grateful for all the happy times he has brought into my life and countless other comedy fans, may he R.I.P. and may his family be healed as he makes everyone laugh in the Pearly Gates and Heaven beyond!!! ❤
